    A mandolin being built for Green Mountain Bluegrass & Roots festival in Manchester, VT. This will be raffled off along with a Seeders banjo and a Pre-War acoustic guitar. A great festival that everyone should be aware of.

    This is the first Sorensen Pacifica, and the mandolin, picked by my mando-mentor Randy Torno, that made its debut way back at IBMA 2011.

    Back and sides are Curly Claro Walnut. Neck is sugar Maple with a walnut stripe. Top is salvage-harvested Alaskan Sitka Spruce.

    sides are removable for going in a little bag , it goes with a shadow undersaddle piezo pickup , a guitar amplifier and a 9 volts battery
    tuners are back of the bridge for save space and balance weight .

    That's a really innovative design, and I really like your homage to the Florentine tradition.
    I dig the way you think, and I believe that Lloyd would have approved - or even loved it!

    Very nice A4 Dobe. Wide fingerboard and string spacing coupled with a deep V neck made my 1913 A4 Blackface very difficult for me to play. It’s a great sounding instrument at it’s best with Monel strings. I threw the original nut in the case storage and replaced it with a custom M.O.P. nut to bring the string sets closer together. The extra fingerboard width on each side is not very noticeable when played this way. The deep V I have to live with but all in all the new string spacing made the instrument much more player friendly for me.
