I had some requests from friends for some pics of my last mando. I finally took the pics. I made this mandolin for me. It has a German Spruce top and some wonderfully flamed maple. This one is a keeper! I hope you all enjoy the pics http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mandosmiley.gif

Thanks for all the "good reading" on the discussion board; I have learned alot from all you guys!

Sweet! What color dies/stain did you use - as long as you wouldn't have to shoot me if you told me. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Thanks for all the kind words! I use color-tone stain. Vintage amber for the base stain and then tobacco brown. I went for a 60's Gibson light sunburst.
