    Looks nice but I have an armrest on just one of my mandolins and it is a McClung and I really like it !
    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !

    I have one that I bought for my Gibson A1. It is handsome and does the job. I have several McClungs and prefer those. The Northfield isn't as wide as the McClungs are, and I don't find it as comfortable. I would like a McClung for my Big Mon, but Doug seems to have slowed down his production, so I might purchase another of the Northfield's.

    Read the link... They call it Koa b/c it looks like Koa. It's maple, from Michigan.
