    Default New (to me) Morris 2 point mandolin

    Hi all,
    I just got this mandolin from a fellow member (thanks, Dan!). Number 120, 2008. I've only had it a day but like it a lot. A sweet tone and that compromise that I was looking for in a hybrid--more bass and resonance but without losing too much clarity. But it's early days. There aren't that many good photos of Morris mandolins out there so I thought I would post these. I'll get a sound sample up one of these days.Click image for larger version.

    Nice photos, Cary. Your lawn looks a lot like mine. Best of luck with that mandolin.
