Hi to all, here is my latest mandolin. this mandolin has a sound that is hard to describe. The top is 150 year old red spruce from an old building in upstate NY. It was yellow with age and the smell was wonderful. I just couldn't resist distressing it. Deep woody and powerful starts to describe it.
