This is the last of the latest batch and I am ready for a little holiday break!

You will find a review and more pictures of this mando later this week on Ted Eschliman's site, JazzMando.com

I didn't light this one very well, so sorry for the so-so pics...

That is one classy mando. I love the color and the workmanship looks great. I bet that back looks even better in person.

Clark 2-Point Mandolin, with a one-piece Engelmann Spruce top and Bigleaf Maple back and sides. Finished in a deep Ruby color with nitro lacquer. Binding is top and side bound Tortoise, with black and white accent lines and Ebony point protectors. "Clark" inlay on the Ebony headstock with flush-inlaid truss rod cover and Mother of Pearl nut are accompanied by silver Waverly tuning machines. Fingerboard is also bound with marker dots on top and sides and has a compound radius. An engraved Bill James tailpiece and Cumberland Acoustics Bridge carry the strings. The abbreviated pickguard is Tortoise bound Ebony

My favorite mando color and binding treatment.(I personally know 2 BRWs that could be family!) Also, the radiused edge on the pickguard puts it in a league with the big boys. IMO that is.

(But I know he can make another equally splendid!)
