Scotti, I love ya man, but when are you going to learn to use that fancy camera?? http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif In other words, you pick a lot better than you pic.

Probably the same goes for mine...

True, those last two may not be for everybody, but I like them both where they are.
Especially that marbly turquoisy one, Django fret. It looks at once retro and modern. It reminds me of those old celluloid fountain pens.

mandoryan, if you go to the "eye candy" section of the Cafe, you will find a link to James DeCava and there are more pictures at his Web site.
