    These are the best photos I could get. The finish is all one shade(dark) so any light areas are from me messing with the images.

    Ben did an outstanding job on this one and gave me exactly what I wanted; something non-traditional with clean lines and a big, fat sound. Check it out.

    Very, very nice. Wonderful quilted back. I like the deep, rich burgundy/red wine color. Someday, I'll get a chance to hear one of these things...

    That's beautiful. I love the binding treatment. I can't wait to play a J16 one of these days.

    When I saw Ben a few weeks ago I'm almost positive I played this very mandolin, unless Ben has one exactly like this one. I remember the peghead shape and that I LOVED the binding! Great sound too! This mandolin is what made me change my mind about flamed vs. quilted. I'm going with the quilted!

    wow that one is sweet. I love that binding treatment, the way the stripe is mitered makes it look very dressy, and formal.
    I'm diggin it, thats pretty much exactly what I want in a mandola, something different but classy and sleek, awesome stuff...I'm sure it sounds greeat too.

    ethan, Funny you should say that. I told Ben that I feel like I should wear a tux to play it.

    mandolinquent- You might have played Ben's. He has a J16 just like it with the only difference being his has a black face.

    WOW! Killer binding and pinstrip!
    Seeing something like that makes you start to think about a second BRW!
    I never wanted them all, Just the ones I wanted.....

    That is absolutely gorgeous. I like how the bridge thumbwheel reflects in the last picture, oustanding finish!
