    Love it! Who needs a scroll?

    I've never seen this type of Dude before. Supercool in all its simplicity.

    I was looking back over the postings in the thread and do believe the pic of a Dude shown in Jim Roberts' postings ##220-222 are of Dude #36, not #38. I am fairly certain of this, as #38 is an F-5 style mandolin.
    The young fellow in the picture is holding #38 & he liked it.

    I'm not sure. I'll ask The Dude next time I talk to him. Is that the one in your profile pic?

    Also ask Lynn what numbers are on the bench now.

    Hi folks... the "1A" photos are of #49. I'm currently building mandolin serial numbers in the mid-50's (various stages of completion right now). I built guitars for a good portion of 2009 and am back to mandolins again.

    Happy New Year to all!

    Evan...you are correct as it is in fact number 48. The owner really enjoys it, too!

    Here's to a peaceful 2010 'round the globe.

    "Goodin"Yes that is #49 in my avatar, but #49 belongs to another cafe member. My 1A should be finished this March. I understand your excitement.

    I think I just burned my retinas. That is one flamey back!

    I see #61 is bound front and back; I think #60 was just bound front, wasn't it?

    That is a beauty. Enjoy it.

    Reviving this old thread...

    Here are pics of #63. Engelmann over Red Maple. Top is from the same logs as Chris Thile's #5 and #14. Here is a video of Travis Burch playing the instrument before Lynn scooped the fretboard and added markers for me:

    Although this thread is several years old now...

    I purchased #63 (see other post) on consignment from Lynn. And I echo many of the previous posters in saying that as MARVELOUS as his instruments are...the MAN far and away exceeds them. Lynn is certainly in the "1%" as mentioned previously. He is a tremendous human being (and obviously a gifted craftsman/luthier).

    Thank you Lynn...for just being YOU...on behalf of all of us.

  17. The following members say thank you to Batch666 for this post:

    I was struck by the sound of that one when it was first posted. I think Travis had it right: "This one's really appealing."
