    Default Mountain Acoustics Luthier Invitational and Eddie Blevins

    So yesterday I went up to Burnville, NC for the luthier gathering there. Ran into a couple of friends including Rhonda Gouge who was camped at Eddie Blevins booth and flat tearing it up on the mandolin and guitar. I joined her and a guitar player I did not know for an impromptu jam. She was playing a brand new F model and I was playing the A5 he had there. Rhonda tried that A5 and declared, "That thing is a HOSS!". She was correct and it took all of the intestinal fortitude I could muster to not take it home.

    I was good to meet Eddie and put a face with the name. He is a fine fellow and his mandolins are sounding real good. Next the year the event will be larger. There were so many fine instruments there I could not stay too long. MAS, and GAS were raging in my soul.

    Eddie is currently building one of his E5 models for me. I cannot wait for it to be finished. His mandolins are absolutely stellar.

    Eddie built an f-style octave for me. It's an amazing instrument. It was his first octave but he sure did it right.

    Eddie had three mandolins, a mandola and an arch top guitar (it was very nice) at the show. Everything sounded good even being as new as some of the pieces were.
