Things are moving along now that itís not winter anymore -for the moment anyway. We should be partially in the new shop in a few weeks, and can begin making parts and Rangers once again- Lord willing and the creek donít rise (a bluegrass title if there ever was one). Things always take longer, especially if it's a 100 year old barn.
We really appreciate the patience of those waiting for pickguards, Rangers, etc.
*edited to add, Bruce is accepting all repairs and MAC instruments
We are settled in our new place and temporary shop. Bruce is accepting tune ups, repairs, customizations again! We also are accepting MAC Instruments to sell for you (we have two great ones on our website, now).
The Christmas season isn't usually the time you want to mess with this sort of thing, but I suddenly realized I hadn't posted here yet! If you have any questions or topics don't hesitate to email or give Bruce a call.
Here's hoping you have a very Merry Christmas
Just a note to let you know the shop is now shutdown until September, when we're set up at our new place. The exception are our used MAC instruments will still be available (have one you won't want to miss coming up soon).
We'll miss the old school, but it's a bit big for us now, and we retain all of the memories of luthiers, players, vendors, dealers, and mandolins.
So schedule your Mando's trip to 'The Mando Spa', as several of our players have taken to calling it, in the
Here is a nice old Flatiron from a player in NJ who figures heís going to be spending a lot more time with his mando and wanted it to play itís best. He got a plane and re-fret, nut bone nut, new bridge, and as long as it was in the shop, added a scallop and custom inlay. Check out the great engraving job Bill did on the new James Tailpiece!
