    Re: Best Armrest

    The trick is to have the armrest to fit only the very outer edge of your mandolin. You donít want them on top of your sound wood. So, if they donít angle up over the top, it will kill the sound.

    Hey! I know this mandolin. Great one. If I needed one, it wouldn't be in the adds. I knew the builder and know the owner. I have number 16 Skip Kelley. Skip studied under C.E. Ward.
