Here are photos of my new baby. Gary Komoski is a builder in Manitoba, Canada. This is #41 in a combination of guitars and mandolins he has built. I hope to have this one in my hands next week sometime.

Already looks a hundred years old.

Gonna be a really nice one.

John. The mandolin looks like it would sound pretty good. (That sounded funny.:))) I went to his site and at a few angles you can see that Gary builds them with a pretty thin top, ~That's good. Is the mandolin pretty precussive with a good chop? It looks really nice and old. Nice finish. :grin:

John, that mandolin sounds like it would look pretty good. (That sounds even worse).
It's nice, actually, and I hope you get years of pleasure from it.

While we're on the topic of mandolins with three letter names.....

What is Ben making for you now?
