That looks very nice, and you're getting his new tailpiece too. I'm anxious to hear how it sounds.

Pictures at last. This instument is a thing a beauty. The sound is ethereal, haunting everything you expect from an octave mandolin. Brian Dean is the real deal; great to work with and his work is superb.

This and the Bluett F4...Now all you need is a zook, a mandola, an emando, and some extra storage space... http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
