    Default A-style finished

    This was one of my covid projects. Haven't built a mandolin in quite some time and my college roommate wanted an A-style with a black top. Originally it was going to be all black, but I wanted to work on hand applied sunburst, so changed the plan in mid course (which is why the back book matching is so bad). I'm particularly pleased with the photographic backdrop which I tie dyed myself. In my judgement it sounds ok.Click image for larger version.

    Out of curiosity why didn't you run the strings through the holes? Maybe make a bit of difference tonally?

    Very nice job.

    And I hate threading strings through tailpieces too.

    Excellent question. I plead ignorance. When I restring it to send it off I will do so.
