Schneider F mando arrived Dec. 9. Triple bound everywhere. Fit and finish as good as any I've seen on any mando at any price. Red spruce top sounds great out of the box and has deepened in tone in the last week. Plays wonderful, 1 1/8th at the nut. Scalloped fretboard extension(Inlaid frets!) Mr. Schneider lives and makes these in Portland. This is a great mandolin and the price was rediculous compared to how it burns.

Congratulations! Ilove that 1-piece back. Is that Bob Schneider from Oregon? I've played one of his and it was great.

Yes. Bob Schneider of Portland Ore. He's on the builders site. I'll try for better photos.

Does anyone know if these fine Schneider luthiers are related: Joe ( Weber), Paul (Summit) and Bob? I know that Joe was with Flatiron and stayed on with Bruce Weber in Montana. Any history on the other two gentlemen?

Very nice!

Its probably an optical illusion, but it appears that the neck is at a slight angle to the body. Am I losing it?
