Got 'er done!

My second scratch build:
Grover tuners, Cedar top, one piece maple back, custom one piece bridge, w/virzi, radius fingerboard w/ larger frets, Paua abalone fret & position markers. The mp3 was made after only a few hours strung up. It keeps sounding better and better as I play it.

LOL, Mark. I'm hot already, it was 102 degrees in the shop area yesterday. My area is climate controlled, heated in the summer and cooled in the winter.

Tracy, I don't know at this point if I'm keeping it. I love the sound though, we'll see if I get a decent offer. My wife says I have too many mandolins already. I may have to see how the next one comes out. I have the wood already (Red Spruce top w/ a one piece maple back).
