Check out my fraternal twins that The Mandolin Store stork delivered. A Lafferty LA5 and LF-5B. Both have engraved Bill James tailpieces from Axiom, McClung armrests from Hill Country Stringworks, Long Hollow Softy straps, and Tone-gards.
Dennis has done a fabulous job with these Lafferty's. . . and the guys at The Mandolin Store are very helpful and great to work with. Set up was exactly what I wanted and expected on both when they arrived. They look and sound awesome! I have owned more expensive mandolins, but never any that played any better or sounded this good.
Also thanks to Doug at Hill Country Stringworks for helping me get the look I wanted with the armrests. The McClung armrests are the most comfortable I have ever tried.
And Bill James at Axiom makes a great tailpiece. Very helpful and nice to deal with too.
I am one proud Papa! Lol.
