    Not vintage at all, but it's very pretty and the client loves it to death...
    2018 Gibson Firebird Elite just needed new strings and a setup.
    He's very happy with it now.

    A quick photo of the back of a flat-back I am just now finishing. This is Black Walnut from a limb crotch and looks even better in person. The sides are from the same piece and have nice flaming. Really hard wood.

    More photos when it is finished.

    Thanks Spencer, I appreciate the compliment. I am looking forward to see your next instrument completed, too. Building mandolins is addicting, isn't it? Sort of MBS rather than MAS!

    Hey Steve,

    Thanks for posting these. I am a great fan of piccolo mandolins and believe that if more people had a chance to try them, they would become more popular (the instruments, not necessarily the people, but who knows?). These two are quite beautiful and offer a great opportunity to get a piccolo, if someone is looking (assuming they are not already spoken for).

    Looks like you have gone with the Nugget tailpiece. I normally don't use that on my piccolo builds only because I'm trying to keep the price down, but it is my favorite tailpiece when I can splurge a little. It fits in nicely on these smaller instruments and is super easy for string changes. Most other quality tailpieces just look a little too big on these (my opinion only).

    What is the wood on the darker-backed one? I like it a lot.

    Best wishes, Bob

    Bob,
    I used the Nugget tailpiece for that reason. Scale. It fits nicely with the size of these little things. The others just look way too big. The dark one is Koa with German Spruce top. The other is Maple and Cedar. Still have not worked out cases. I posted videos with sound on my Facebook page if you care to hear them.

    I'll post some case solutions for you as soon as I can take some photos, probably tomorrow.

    EDIT: On second thought, I'll PM you. It's kind of off the topic of the thread.

    Fabbed up a new bone nut on a 7 string electric.
    That injection molded chunk of chewing gum was grabbing the strings and made tuning a real problem.
    No more! Looks better and sure works better!

    Glad you liked it, John. The guitar had other problems, but it's all smoothed out and playing fine now...

    Here is the Smellotone banjo. Back in the shop because I foolishly used air dried lumber. I do not know if it will live.
