    Default The D.Gilchrist in the classifieds

    No connection to me whatsoever.

    I look at the work and I think, "That's beautiful stuff, but it should be 5 string with a Jonathan Mann wrap around tailpiece, 2 pickups and a 15" scale length. Then it would be nearly impossible to resist."

    I almost agree Daniel. I think it "could" be a 5 string (15" scale) or a 4 string (13.9" scale) for that matter. Not necessarily that it "should" be. I do like the 2 pickup and Mann wraparound TP ideas however. Beautiful work!!! Perhaps young Mr. Gilchrist will be expanding his product offerings.

    Wow, nice looking mandolin. I'm not quite sure what warrants that extremely high price. There are some wonderful well made electrics out there at a fraction of that $$.
