    Welcome to the Cafe. I'm kind of fond of this one of my Spira mandolin. The soundhole is modeled after a cat's eye.

    Jill - Your new Girouard looks amazing !.

    I can't locate a copy right now, but I always liked that shot of Pete Martin with a wry grin on his face holding his Gibson with the busted off scroll on the headstock. Maybe he'll post it.
