That's my old K2 mandocello. I sold it to David Harvey. Good to see it getting played again. It languished in my closet for many years after my Irish music days back in the 80s.

I went to one of their guitar workshops last year. Very well put together and informative. I talked mandolins with Tim for quite awhile after it was over. That's one heckuva nice collection. And man can he play the mandocello!

Love the Plaidgrass YouTube video. Great playing and that 8 string banjo sounds fantastic as does the whole band.
