    Default Kelley two-point mandolin

    Here are two videos of my first two-point mandolin. The top is 1850 redwood.

    I like that mandolin. That's the one you had at my shop this past summer, right? That is one of the best mandolins I've ever played. Just noticed we have been making similar soundholes! Oh Well!!

    Ken, that's the one. Thanks for the kind words! The sound holes, I guess great minds think alike!

    If Gibson had never foisted that cursed scroll on the world we would all be in a happier place with more delightful Two-Point mandolins!

    Steve, you are so right brother! The more I look at a two-point; I wonder why I haven't been making them all along!

    Thanks, Walt!
