    That is one fine-sounding mandolin. Not too shabby-looking, too.

    That is one sweet mandolin, and brilliantly played by Mr R. Nathan as well.

    Nathan Redelphs is a friend of Andy Poe. In addition to his youtube recording of the ebony mandolin, Nathan can be seen playing two other Scouts, both featuring non-traditional mandolin woods.

    Andy Poe just sent me another video of Nathan playing the same Scout mandolin. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ys9g...ature=youtu.be

    I find this recording at least as impressive as the first.

    WOWZERS!

    Based on the two videos, the tone of the Poe makes this Loar sound thin...

    The tune played after 24 seconds intro by Nathan Redelfs on on the Scout Mandolin #60 2 video is "Tam Linn" also known as the "Glasgow reel" composed by Davey Arthur

    You commented on Andy's workmanship. Here are some photos of the build process of the ebony Scout. There are also a few shots of the woods used for the two others that were part of the group.

    Congrats cayuga red, that is an excellent example of Andy Poe's work. As the proud owner of Scout #53 (Redwood/Rosewood) I fully appreciate the high level of craftsmanship, beauty and tone. These are great mandolins!
