    I placed an order for a Short Scale back in March 2021. He's somewhat hard to get ahold of, but Facebook DMs seem to work the best. He Said back in May(2022) that my Mandolin would soon be ready for binding and finishing. We never actually discussed the details of what my mandolin would look like though(color, binding, etc). Whatever happens, COVID was a hard time for people, so I'm just glad he's still out there doing his thing.

    What do you mean by a “Short Scale?” Is it going to be 13” like a classical instrument?

    Correct. Mike makes 13~ inch scale, carved top,Oval and F hole mandolins. He has a page about them on his website, too. I have a flat top with the same scale, this one would be a great companion to it.

    Neat. Are you anticipating an oval or f-holes?

    I specified a Short-scale A4 when I put down the deposit, so hopefully an oval hole.

    It’s hard to imagine an A4 with f-holes. Please keep us apprised of the progress with your build!

    My order for an A2Z was arranged in February of 2021, last time I heard from Mike he was looking at mid or late July for completion, so I assume I will hear from him soon.
