The latest from my bench. Old red spruce.

Having already played this mandolin before the finish was applied, I can't wait to get it back tomorrow! It plays great, has volume to spare, tonal powerhouse with a sweet sustain that makes it a sheer pleasure to play. The top is 100 year old Adirondack, and it brings the goods. I have a very good redwood of Ken's already, and this spruce is on par with it already. Unbelievable, as I know the spruce will get better with time.

Ken, that's a nice looking mandolin! I bet it sounds as good as it looks! Donnie, you will have to post a video when you can.

Thought I'd oblige you Skip. Here is a little video Test Drive of #363.
