View Full Version : black walnut back,sides&neck

Aug-04-2005, 6:10pm
hi everybody,
I am wondering if anyone has an F-5 with black walnut
for the sides, back & neck? if so would you please post pictures and comments? I am considering building
an F-5 with the above wood + european spruce top
I already built a curly maple model and I think I have the sound part down pretty good (tap tuned & all)
and I would like to play with 2 this time(#2,maple#3walnut)
any comments?
thanks, MandolinTim

i've got an om with walnut back and sides, its really warm and has a mellower tone than maple. As for building a mando with it, go fir it, i'm sure you won't be dissapointed http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
