    I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine, which is Terry's #14. These are really fun instruments!

    Beautiful mandolin! I’m sure it sounds as great as it looks! Congratulations!

    Umm…
    not trying to put any kind of a damper on your acquisition, but I think I’d wipe it down really well when you get it. That looks like a pretty good size poison ivy vine that it’s leaning against…
