    Mr. Ruhland shared these pics of an A5, just a day or two away from the French polish stage of construction.

    I hope you get to play one sometime pops1. They are quite special. The very first A style Matt built will be 2 years old in Oct of this year I believe. It continues to get better as time rolls along. Here's an example.

    I should mention all of the A5's in that photo are spoken for.

    I don't think Matt has had to make a mandolin that wasn't spoken for in a while. Hopefully he and other great luthiers can continue to thrive!

    If one wasn't spoken for I'd be tempted to do whatever I could to resolve that. They're that good.

    I'll just add also that he's a real gent. He answered all my initial questions promptly and politely, as if he had all the time in the world.

    Here is a photo from today. I attempted to remove some light glare from the pic which may have caused more trouble than resolve it but you get the idea.
