Nice looking F5 Walter! I love your inlay and the sunburst is spot on! I bet it's a hoss!

In addition to all the other great looks, cool inlay idea, Walt.

Thanks for the compliments! The mandolin sounded really good. I have really come to like x-braced mandolins. Its taken a few years and quite a few builds to begin to dial it all in. By moving the location of the x and the angle of the bars i have been able to get the sound that i have been looking for in each instrument. This year i hope to build a couple mandos that i have always wanted to build. One of the first will be a one piece top,one piece birdseye maple back, black/white/black triple bound varnished A5.
thanks again, Walter

Looks great. Picture #040 now makes a very fine wallpaper background on my PC, too :)
