    Just noticed your post grommet,
    Bill is only doing bows these days, his mandolins are now “collectible items” at least in my opinion. I was lucky to see his early builds and quite a few of his later...

    Re: '77 D.Wm Halsey F5

    Yessir, I played that one and remember the case! There is also a double case out there somewhere that he made for, I think, his F-4 and that F-5. The “Pockets” were about the right size for a bottle...
