We were feeling a little creative on this one!...modeled after my friends King bass. For the rockabilly mandolinist's. I might receive a big hand slap from the bluegrass police on this one.... http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif

Interesting.... Do you have more pictures?

How does it sound?

Wow, I DO hear sirens!!! It may be the arrival of the BlueGrass SWAT Team. (I didn't call them.)

Bend over, Barry, and take what you have coming to you. Where's that paddle?

Harmony....I havent final sanded or buffed out yet, another week or so and I can string it up. There is a red spruce top and ribbon mahogany underneath all that goop..
Actually, the finish is all lacquer, and was a real challenge to level out...sprayed the entire mando flat black and clear coated over it. I am fairly confident that it will sound good.

Cool, Barry..... When you get it all finished, then can we see more pictures?
I'm glad that it's going to be 'a player'. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/blues.gif
