    The customer playing it (though they are playing a medieval song, not a baroque one!):

    That’s a great looking instrument. How many hours did it take to build? I enjoyed the tune you played.

    Truly wonderful!

    That's the customer playing, not me. It took me about 2 months to build. Difficult to give an exact number of hours as I always have at least 3 on the go, otherwise I'd spend the whole time waiting for things to dry!

    Two of my favorite things: early music and mandolins! Pretty instrument.

    If it sounds anything like it looks--wow...
    Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?
