Keith Newell builds a fine flattop. #Here's a pic he sent me, the real thing is in my living room now.

Here's a pic he sent me of the back, nice flamey big leaf maple.

Here's a wee clip i recorded after a couple minutes of playing it, not my finest playing but should give you some idea of the tone

Excellent mandolin, especially for the price i paid.

What a lovely flat top, congratulations! Very elegant, and that maple back is beautiful.

I didn't think the playing sounded too bad either, but what do I know http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
