    Default Recent A model Mandolin

    Here is a recent A Model mandolin of mine - I don't make as many of these as I do my Celtic F mandolin, but they're really great.

    I really love the looks of that.
    Having something to say is highly over rated.

    Very nice looking !
    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !

    If you send me an email via my website, I can send you the current price list. Link below, there is a contact form at the foot of every page.

    Availability - I make one batch of mandolins a year - there are 6 mandolins in a batch. Next years' batch has two vacant spots.

    Being a retired violin maker, I noticed you put a pin in the back to the tail block. Beautiful mandolin.

    Beautiful!!! I've always liked the light wood/dark binding look. Very stunning.

    What is the bridge made of?
