Thread: In praise of mandolin builder Matt Ruhland

    The Ruhland neck is custom. Matt used a mandolin I used to own that now lives in Portland as a template and then modified the neck it to be a little less deep. The Ruhland neck turned out slightly slimmer/shallower than the Heiden and I think that's even better for my left hand. In my experience, Ellis necks are deeper. I took it to a weekend picking party where I played 10 hours a day or so. No hand problems other than very sore fingertips. Will get to recording sometime soon.

    Here's a little sample of #37. The tune is "Monroe's Farewell to Longhollow."

    Don,

    i just listened to your new A5 recording again. I'm biased but to my ear that little A5 sounds pretty darn nice. What is it now 2 months old, one month, i forget?

    Thanks, I've been enjoying it since Sept 25, so not a month old yet. Still a growing young 'un.
