Beautiful as ever!

How are the brain cells doing after being forced to string up the wrong way round? Takes mine about a day to recover from the shock :)

Thanks Skip. Well, It is a mess trying to adjust to working backwards. I remember one time after working all day on a lefty, I couldn't shift my standard shift car. Had to think about it awhile.:)

I helped a left handed buddy of mine put together a left handed guitar from a kit. It was a challenge for me to do this left handed. I had to keep checking myself and the plans we were using. The funny thing my buddy installed the side dots on his fretboard as though it was right handed!

Might have a new term here for builders...

ambi-mando-dextrous, def. luthier's ability to build mandolins for left-handed and right-handed players

A lefty and righty in the same band would look interesting, huh?:disbelief:

I did the dots on the wrong side once too Skip, but then put them on both sides with the explanation that if you ever wanted to change over to left, you can, it was an A style. Be impossible with an F.

Welcome to the world of us left handed folks. That is one beautiful mandolin.
