View Full Version : Induced arch

Feb-06-2004, 9:07pm
To all the experienced builders among us, could an induced arch/oval hole mandolin be made to try and replicate the sound of the older Gibson A? I have an octave mandolin with an induced arch top and it is a major canon. I am thinking about getting one custom built if I could come close to the sound that I am looking for. I also wonder what sound I might get if the back were to be made with the induced arch as well.Any input would be greatly appreciated.
