    Fiddler's Green also has a seldom seen mandola from Stefan's bench: http://www.fiddlersgreenmusicshop.co...sernig-mandola

    I've given some thought to selling my F-style (#42, pictures posted here). I really dig it, but I'm mostly a guitarist and it sits in the case a lot. I can imagine downgrading to a Collings MF maybe to put a little money back in my pocket...

    You could always post an ad in the classifieds, where MF's seem to be trading around $3300 lately. I'd trade you one if I had it, as I'd like to own one of Stefan's F5's at some point (although I hadn't considered pearwood on a mandolin). I don't know how much Smoky Mountain Guitar was charging for them new back in 2007, but I wish that I had been smart enough to get in then!

    Stefan actually harvested the Pearwood on his family's property in Europe. It was a very old tree, from what I remember, and the wood was somewhat special to him due to its source. It doesn't have any figure to it. The sound is comparable to maple...not sure I could tell a difference. My instrument has an Englemann top if I recall correctly. Sounds somewhat modern, really nice.

    While tooling around the Fiddler's Green website, I was interested to find a new F5, #87:

    Heretofore, I was under the impression that Stefan had an exclusive deal with Smoky Mountain Guitars to sell his F5's (with his A5's and the occasional mandola going to Fiddler's Green). In fact, I believe that Smoky Mountain Guitars still has #86 in their inventory:

    I wonder if Passernig mandolin family instruments will exclusively be featured at Fiddler's Green in the future or if SMG simply declined #87 as they had not yet moved #86.

    While I don't entirely understand the numbering, Stefan's latest F5, #84, has just been listed by Fiddler's Green:

    A Passernig F5 is available on Reverb from J&J Guitars for $7500. I'm wondering if this instrument is #86 from my post above and the seller moving inventory from what was formerly Smoky Mountain Guitars:
