I really love the way this custom A4 came out. Sounds awesome too!
I just shared your Facebook album on my Facebook page. This one is stunning, Mike. Lovely work.
That is one gorgeous mandolin...
Holy Schmoly. Please tell me thats not the piece of quilt I passed on. Just beautiful.
I'm not usually a black top kinda guy, but this ones amazing.

Its going to take me at least an hour to sop up all the drool that just got all over my keyboard.
That is a remarkable mandolin indeed. I am not a sucker for a blackface. But that one creates a new leaning.

So what does it sound like...? Although I have heard a Mike Black mandolin and it sounded great...
I did get exactly what I wanted Mike.
And I'm as happy as a clam at high tide.
But when you sent my 'in the white' video you didn't put on a tie.
Oh Yeah. #14 sounds nice.

This Mandolin arrived here in Sacramento this morning. Let's just say that I forgot to eat lunch and failed to notice that my kids were home after school for a half hour.
The Mando is awesome. It has a Virzi on it, which sounds incredible. I am in love with it. MAS slaked.

Another great one Mike. The back on that is simply stunning. I love how strong and punchy it sounds. Really looking forward to working with you next year.

Beautiful work Mike. Great combinations of colours. Well done!
I like the way it came out, too.
Very special...tradition gone wild. That's a lot of bells and whistles!
WHERE does he find the time?
That's an amazing mandolin in every way!!! And a great tune choice to show it off--that Norman Blake tune doesn't get played enough.
