    Default Recent kelley F5

    Here is a recent Kelley F5. I'm really happy with this mandolin and
    I love how this sunburst came out. Thanks to brother Ken for the 100 year old red spruce top. This stuff is killer!! It has that old sound already.

    Skip--That REALLY is a stunning build! The peghead inlay is uniquely elegant as well, and that 'burst....one of the best I've ever seen!
