Press releases and so-on are going to follow, but I had to post the early results. Bruce is going to hand-build ten F-style mandolins for our tenth anniversary. He used this a-style to practice and hone many of the techniques and appointments that will go into the 'F'. The actual 10th anniversary mandolin will be a bit different, but this mandolin looks and sounds so beautiful that I figured I'd share it. It's one-of-a-kind, going to the Fret Art Gallery in Alta Loma, CA.
