Here's a new flat-top from Chris Baird, builder of Arches mandolins (Cafe ID: mandolplyr). Lovely choice of woods, excellent fit and finish, very warm tone, easy to play, and excellent value. Not to take anything away from other builders, but this mando is at least as good as the flat-tops I've played from Weber, Mid-Mo, Freshwater, and Moon. If you're in the market for a flat-top, and want to work with an individual builder, give Chris a call. I'm impressed enough that I will probably order an arch-top from Chris later this year. He has some great pictures of some of his arch-tops in the "Work in Progress" thread.
