    Default Covid-19 is keeping me busy in my shop!

    Keeping busy with a few new spec. models, thanks to this darn virus crap.
    Just thought I'd post a couple photos.

    Looking good John. Any of those for sale? Not that I need another instrument, but it doesn't hurt to ask. I still think you make the best electric mandolin for the money. I love mine and play it all the time.

    Thanks Chief! Glad to hear you're still playing the 5-stringer. Hope all is well with ya these days. Green and natural ones are not yet spoken for.

    So, how much is the middle one- the natural 5 stringer with 2 pickups? And also, how much would the aqua 5 stringer? I did just sell My National RM 1, so I have room in the arsenal. Thanks, Chief.
