    I'm curious who made this instrument. It certainly looks like the name on the headstock ends in "field" but Northfield doesn't use that style of lettering and have only made one lefty instrument that I'm aware of.

    Any ideas?

    Hi, I'm Diana Schofield, John's wife. He retired a few years ago and is slowly building a few more mandolins. He gets up at 6:00 a.m. and works on interesting projects all day, but on rainy days and cold days and days that force him inside, he is building a few more mandolins. He never advertises nor has a web page. I have owned Rockbridge Music for 35 years and am still amazed at the people who have tracked him down. He has a video on you tube called John Schofield's ball machine .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcVJbIE7fjM. Tells a bit about him and mentions his mandolins later on.
