    Default A couple of new instruments

    An F style mandolin of Sitka and quilted big-leaf maple. Ebony fretboard and head overlay with the new Schaller tuners and an Allen tailpiece. The other is a 21" scale five course cittern for GDAea tuning, made from European spruce and Otways blackwood (from Australia) with a mahogany neck with Gotoh tuners and an Allen 10 string tailpiece for ball end strings. Both are delightfully responsive instruments and I am well pleased 8-)

    I am not usually a fan of F style mandolins but that one is elegant and I like it.
