    Default A new OM

    After a decade or so of mostly building mandolins, suddenly I have orders for a couple of OMs and a bouzouki. This one was strung up last week and will be heading off to its owner in the next few days. 22" scale octave mandolin, European spruce soundboard with H bracing, and Tulip satinwood back and sides. This is an Australian timber which is a delightful tonewood, but almost unobtainable. Queensland maple neck with a two-way trussrod and Indian rosewood fingerboard. Rubner tuners and an Allen tailpiece. A bright punchy sound.
