    Default New design from Bulas

    This is a fairly well known builder of banjos out of Warsaw, and this is a new design they just posted on Instagram we thought worth sharing. You can click through a series of images with the arrows on the sides of the images.

    Looks like a well made mandolin...I would call it "The Nessie".

    A bunch of stuff with four strings

    That's very clean! I like it.

    It is a beautiful mandolin.
    I love the headstock, the subtle treble side points, and the tailpiece.
    It seems to sound pretty good too, which is most important.

    I am not huge fan of the scroll area.
    To me, it is not fitting in with the rest of the design.

    I would love to see one where the builder mirrored the treble side design to the other side, for an interesting A-Style.
    It would be very cool.
