    Default Another from the 2020 crop

    Another mandolin from the 2020 crop goes out this week. This one will live in England pretty soon. I think the new owner should be pretty happy with her...

    Tastefully understated beauty.
    I absolutely LOVE the bearclaw on the top.
    The tuners are so nice, also. What is the brand you used?
    Is the brass tailpiece of your design? It truly adds to the overall look.
    Thank you so much for sharing!

    This is a beauty. The tuners and tailpiece set it apart.

    The tailpiece is my own design - but obviously based on Stefans'. They are machined from brass by a very talented chap and I do the final shaping, polishing and lacquering. The tuners are Waverly, the customer upgraded from the standard satin steel Rubner tuners.
