Here are a couple of pictures of my new M-22V Oval/F Hybrid. The pictures are from 2003 when it was built. It is pretty much in the same shape now. This is the prototype of Hans' M-22V. While not really new, it's also not very used, as Hans just let it go.

And the back. Bosnian Maple. Varnish finish.

Up close. The top is Italian Spruce. The pickguard is a piece of ebony. Thanks Hans.

Hans makes some of the most beautiful mandos on the planet - a true artist and craftsman.

Absolutely stunning. I really like the old school fingerboard extension, and the scroll is perfect. How does it sound with the longer neck and the oval hole?

Beautiful mando. My L21V is also of Bosnian maple. Chuck

Simply gorgeous. No doubt, Hans is among the best of the best.

Beautiful, really. I'd also be very interested in a decription of the sound or a sound file.
This mando looks that good, that the thought "I want one" appeared in record-time, when it popped up on my montior. Must have been far under one second.

As far as the sound goes: very rich sounding; more open than the F5, but since it is a hybrid it has a chop. I will work on a sound clips.

Beautiful! That looks similar to the one that was on the cover of Guitarmaker a few years ago.

Boy that's a surprise. If it is not the same one, it is certainly its twin.

It is the same one. Compare the grain in the pickgaurd.

And the reflections on the bass bout on picture No. 3. How cool is that? http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Wow I just noticed that. Not only the same mando but the same pic as well with the background removed. VERY nice mandolin I am jealous.

That mandolin wants me to play it! A thing of beauty. I'm not a pickgaurd guy myself, but I would probobly have to leave that one on just because it looks so perfect. Ive got a feeling I could learn to live with it. Congrats on a beautiful instrument.

Dan, that is the mandolin on the cover of Guitarmaker. Hope you are enjoying it. #http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Can anyone help me figure out how to post a sound file? Is it the same way as a picture with the same size limits (i.e 153600 bytes).

Thanks

I normally don't like pickguards, but that one is actually fairly attractive (coming from me that is saying a lot). I'm sure it's a great mandolin too. Thanks for feeding my oval-hole MAS.

That is one heckuva nice mandolin. But I'm probably a little biased http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Shaun, Thanks. I accept all support, regardless of bias. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mandosmiley.gif

Here's an updated picture. That's a Bailey Alsepa Strap. And notice how nicely that Doug Edwards matched the streaked ebony pickguard. Thanks Loren, Doug and especially Hans. I got a nice Peg case for it so thanks Sam too!

As an aside, the sound is really starting to wake up with playing and some "speakerfying." Very rich and open.

Sorry for the slight blur in the picture. I was trying to do natural light and that's the best I can get without a flash. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif

I like how you can see the grain through the black top, it has that old-school vibe. Hans knows how to do it right!

This is a little nicer.

I just noticed the ZigZag on the extention, classy cool.

When I think Hans just can't top himself, he makes something like this! Just beautiful and I know how it sounds having had the privilege of playing numerous examples of his work. All of his instruments look, feel and most important...sound great.
Congratulations.
