Those of you who are familiar with my work will no doubt have seen the wonderful video that Brendan Emmett posted of himself and his new Nava twin-point. Well, incredibly that was six years ago and Iíve just complete this new mandolin for him. Based on my Standard Plus design it has Macassar ebony back and sides with a European spruce top, inlays made from re-con rock, all French polished.
Cheers Gary

No problem at all- similar to Indian rosewood.
