Wow. Jim's work continues to be among the cleanest out there. That scroll is amazing and the sunburst is perfect.

That's a real beauty, Jim. Are you going to personally deliver it to Egypt?

That's a beautiful mandolin.I playd one of your mandolins in Winfield and loved it.

That's beautiful, Jim.

I have to admit that I have a picture of one of Jim's scrolls on the wall in my garage as inspiration of what an F-style scroll should look like!
