    Default Elkhorn Mango/Redwood F-5 #46

    Here's the latest Elkhorn off the work bench...F-5 #46. Curly Mango and a 100 year old Redwood sound board with Cocobolo head stock overlay, fret board, and pick guard with EVO gold fret wire to boot. Quite happy with the way this one turned out; sounds pretty amazing with the combination of woods! Someone's going to be pretty stoked when it shows up tomorrow on their front porch! Enjoy

    Cocobolo again Robb !. I bet it's tough working in a rubber dive suit. Seriously - another terrific looking mandolin. The curly Mango is a glorious wood & contrasts superbly with the Redwood top - stunning !,

    Very handsome. I really do like to see instruments of different woods from the standard choices, and this one is a beaut.

    Hey All, Thanks for all the positive comments! Didn't get a chance to record this one as it was a birthday gift and I was trying to get it delivered on time. Have another Mango/Redwood in the works and will make sure to post and MP3 of that one when completed. Have a couple of fiddle back Koa/Cedar F-5's in the works also. Stay tuned!
