    Default now this..........this is one heck of a mandolin

    soon as I saw it I thought, okay, what can I sell and I need to call a deposit in-in front of my eyes-no kidding-it turned to SOLD

    this is simply the ultimate in the looks department-I'm sure its the same in the sound also.

    Did it sell already? 1 3/32" nut was the deal breaker ...

    All of Joe's mandolins are incredible, but this one is the most beautiful I have ever seen. The figure and pattern on the back is stunning.

    Yeah, 1 3/32 is just too narrow.
    I recently had to return a Northfield F5s because the neck was 1 3/32.
    My fingers felt claustrophobic and the edges of my fingers caught on the adjacent strings.

    Other than that, this is a stunning little mandolin.
    I love the wood, color, and that violin sides thing.
    Very cool indeed.

    Does he still have sound clips somewhere? He used to, but they seem to have disappeared when he revamped his website recently. Like someon else, I was quite taken with the A-440, not just the looks, but the sound clips he had.
