Thats real sweet! I seen Paul at Stevenson last weekend but didn't didn't catch a look at the stable of instruments he had with him. He's doing some fine work.

Oh my gawd...I love this...and I'd love it even more in a blond!

Very, very nice. I've always liked the body shape of the Kay which this seems to have elements of, but then add the lower point and transition to the lower point plus that nice subtle sunburst and this is just plain stunning.

Woaaa.... That tail end point looks so much better than Gibson's silly leg biter.

yeah, it is alot more comfortable on the right leg. i hadn't really thought about that.

Sound, how does it sound? I thought the Arrow F on the '02 Mandolin Tasting CD was great.

it's a GREAT sounding mandolin. it has a 14 7/8" scale' and i think that that contributes to it's big sound and sustain. it's bright, but rich at the same time. bright enough for bluegrass, but complex and responsive enough for anything i want to play. i have a '13 gibson A and a recent prucha A, and it's very different than either one. i think that it'll cut right through in my six piece band.
i'm still experimenting with strings- the d'addario j74's were too bright and high-tension, and i've got ghs silk and steels on it now, which are really good. i'm going to try some thomastik mediums next.

Did someone say they wanted to see a blonde? #Here is my Arrow G! She is Prototype #1

Aug-12-2004, 2:36pm
Here is her back side, isn't she sweet!

John Rosett

just beautiful! what number is it?

Rob Powell
Aug-12-2004, 2:48pm
Man oh, man......Yes, blonde was what I asked for...and lookie at dat!

Holy Moses..the contrast with the top is simply stunning!

Aug-12-2004, 3:10pm
She is "Prototype" #1. I believe Paul Lestock is holding tightly onto the "actual" #1. I know he has had quite a few offers in the short time he has been playing it.

I don't know what's more compelling, pics on this thread or the missus' (unsolicited) Victoria's Secret catalogs she keeps trying to throw away.
All I do know is I better not get caught by her looking at either, or I'm in deep doo doo...

..yea..Ted..Im with you....beats anything Ive ever stepped in...Great looking mandos by the way....

John Rosett
Aug-12-2004, 5:35pm
would you like me to post a picture of the mando wearing it's sexy little black strap?

Aug-12-2004, 8:36pm
Woof! Very sweet, BlackieG...


Aug-13-2004, 5:12pm
Meow! Thanks, I'm really happy with her!

Arrow guitars and mandos....
I commissioned a 4 string from Paul. I haven't even picked up my Sullivan 8 stringer since I got it... though I plan on using a magnetic pickup on it, it is an astounding sounding acoustic mandolin, very alive and responsive, you can hear the wood (and a cannon to boot) #He has built several Archtop and Flat-tops guitars that are just as a incredible... My advice would be if you are even thinking about getting an Arrow.. better do it now, before he goes to the top of the food chain...

a little more crass commercialisim. still for sale in the classifieds....

I like Paul's mandolins. They have a sort of snakehead tone to them.
