    Default showing off my Lawrence A. Smart mandola

    Hi fellows,

    me again, this time showcasing my Smart mandola. Played not too often by me, but a nice one that I don't want to miss. Often has a special role when arranging songs and instrumentals in the studio.

    Collings MF 5
    Gibson F 2 (1917)
    Lawrence Smart H 5 Mandola
    Gibson K 4 Mandocello (1921)
    Sobell 10-string Cittern
    Sanden 8-string Bouzouki
    Thijs van der Harst Octave Mandolin

    guitars, banjo, dobro, weissenborn

    Mandolin: Kentucky KM150
    Other instruments: way too many, and yet, not nearly enough.

    Having met and listened to Lawrence, I Agree that he is a good luthier of all kinds of mandolin family instruments. He is also pretty good at the playing of them, even though he is a pesky grapeseed....
