    Default Critical MAS + MC + TMS = NMD

    I've been wanting a carved A oval forever. And I've been wanting a high quality mandolin forever. So I pulled the trigger on Friday 13th, my favorite day, on the beautiful brown satin oval "PAVA" that the mandolin store had for awhile, shout out to them for great service and a worry free transaction. I felt it needed a good home. After the 24hr wait because of the cold I finally saw and played it this afternoon and I couldn't be more thrilled. It's everything I thought it would be and more. I'll post some good pics later and a detailed description. Right now I just need to PLAY !!! Thank-You Pava !!!

    Congrats! Those Pava mandolins seem to be fantastic. And one can never go wrong with an oval hole.

    Thanks for the beautiful performance. Obviously this mando was built just for you.
