    I always wondered how it would sound if a talented pro picked up one of Matt's mandolins. Now i know

    It sounds, good.

    I'm bummed CJ's playing apparently isn't readily available to folks via the link i uploaded:/ It's definitely available on his facebook page. He is one heck of a player, Grammy award winner!

    This link is no subsitiute but does illustrate an example from the new batch of Ruhland A5's. (This is a 20 sec video)

    It certainly sounds great in CJ's hands and he seems to be quite impressed with it.

    I wonder if any other cafe members picked up one of this new batch of 8 A5's?

    I've managed to work my way down to just a couple of mandolins now. It feels good

    I have an F on order. Matt has kept in touch with me regularly. He is a great guy. I am excited for it to be done.

    I got one of the A's from the most recent batch. It's incredible! Tomorrow I'm selling my soul to the devil so that I can play it at the level it deserves!
