Well lets see when I first got this I scraped the neck, then I recently let my grandson use it well he's hard on his stuff and put some pretty good divots in the top. So I started to sand them out. I said to heck with this the mandolin needs more mods so I cut the Florida section off and installed jumbo frets and new nut.
Sounds good to me, not really satisfied with the look so may try something else in the future.

A bit distressing isn't it. Just looks like it was attacked by a sander.

Bill, I agree, I may do more to it or give it back to my boy and see how much more distressing he can do to it :)
