    You won't find better workmanship than a Girouard-bar none ! Sound is fantastic !
    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 got me a Girouard oval hole A coming this Spring....cedar top, sugar maple back and sides.
    There's nothing better than first-hand experience.
