The mandolin is oil varnish and the sound is incredible. Been strung up only one day and already it has a deep woody chop and clear popping individual notes.

Absolutely stunning, Laura. Was it commissioned or did it come from an inspiration?

That is gorgeous Ken.

May I ask for a close-up of the tailpiece? (Is the tailpiece custom work?)
