    Re: Saw the Trials of Cato yesterday

  9. Re: If you could have any mandolin in the world….

    I am really happy with my Nava archtop and for a different sound my Calace bowl back. There was a gorgeous part finished mandolin that I saw as I was passing a violin shop in Sorrento a few years...
