    Default J.L. Smith 4-Stringer Abbreviated Pickguard:

    I just finished this one up, and thought I'd post a couple photo's: Figured maple drop top over poplar, figured maple neck, maple fingerboard, natural lacquered finish.
    Thanks for looking!

    Very nice John. Good to see that you're still making beautiful instruments. I think they're the best value in electric mandolins on the market today. I believe I was one of your first customers many years back, and I still play your 5 string all the time.

    Steve, I remember you well, and the review that you gave on Emando. Glad to hear that you're still playing the Smith, and hope all is well with you and yours.
    Take Care!
