Re: Vegan mandolins?
I came at it from another angle when I had my two custom instruments built, I didn't want any plastics (binding or buttons) on either of them. There are plenty of builders who will make a great instrument following the requirements you put forward. There are animal and environmentally friendly options out there for the components (woods, glues, finishes, etc). The challenge is to get these things on a smaller budget but, I believe it can be done, even if you have to do it yourself.
There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second. Logan Pearsall Smith, 1865 - 1946
