Hey all, just thought you might enjoy seeing these three mandolins Laura recently finished. They look alike and also are very consistent in sound, being all three very deep and woody with lots of chop. Needless to say, I am pretty proud......

Here is a view of the backs. They are all birdseye maple, one piece.

Hey Ken, Those are gorgeous specimens! Please tell us all about the tailpiece installed; they really are classy!

Very nice indeed. Looks like Orrico tailpieces. Can we get a closeup of the peghead?

Ken, it looks to me like Laura has changed the neck join to a more traditional, Gibson style. Are my eyes deceiving me? And they are Orrico tailpieces.

Fantastic looking mandolins!

And can we get a closeup of the backs as well? That birdseye looks spectacular!
