I am getting some money together, and am interested in buying a custom A model, Old Wave definitely on the radar.
I have read here that Bussman is great to work with. Question I have is about what types of custom work will raise the base cost.
Really so this doesn't get overboard, I'm not talking about $5K tuners, inlay up the ying-yang, or anything too fancy.
Specifically I'm just curious about whether specifying a certain finish color, and perhaps a quilted maple back, will effect the price of the mandolin.
