New off my workbench today. 1850 redwood and 2 piece old maple back. It has the old sound of it's looks.

Beautiful mandolin, Ken! Do the photos represent the color well or is the redness a result of the lighting? Sure would love to hear it...

The color is a good representation. I never have figured out how to make a soundclip. I'll learn how. My playing suffers from the loss of my fingers though.

Awesome looking mandolin. I admire the way you're able to stay true to the classic F-5 design, but keep your own signature look at the same time. I've never seen one of your mandolins in person. Maybe someday. Nice job.

How did you lose yours? I took the ends off my left ring and little finger repairing a guitar for a nephew in 1995. It has been a difficult adjustment. Bless Django Reinhardt for showing the way.

I got complacent with a jointer. They are unforgiving.

I did also. Unforgiving is an understatement.

I was fortunate enough to play this great mandolin of Ken's, and it is a beast! It has it all!

I was at Ken's home Monday this week, and I couldn't put this new mandolin down. It is everything he says it is and more.
