    Andrew's work keeps getting better and better! #I talked to Andrew a couple of months ago about building me an A-5 mandolin, but my wife and my budget would not allow it. #Lane, that is one fine-looking mandolin! #Andrew is a heck of a nice guy and obviously very talented. #Lane, if you have not sold that Kelley A-5, then PM me and I will give you my address

    The mandolion was shipped yesterday and I should have it by the weekend. Andrew displayed it and another at the 2006 Handmade Musical Instrument Show at Marylhurst University near Portland Ore. According to Andrew the mandolins were played by some really notable luthiers/players and they were very well received. He describes the tone as "bluegrassy," very dry and with substantial volume. Chomping at the bits and impatiently waiting. Lp

    Great looking mandolin. What are the tuning machines. The ivoroid buttons really give it a classy look.

    Andrew let me demo this already completed mandolin and I could not put it down and had to own it. The tone has continued to develop over the past few weeks greatly. I have had many common ears ( people who are not even familiar with mandolins and comparison in quality of tone and craftsmenship)stunned by how great it sounds. I hope you are just as happy with yours.

    Pete you have a terrific F5. The quality of Andy's work is amazing and his attention to detail is uncanny. My Mowry is my second custom and I could not be happier with the mandolin. Lp

    Thanks JLP!
    I really think Andrew will soon be making a big name for himself and would consider both of us lucky to part of just the beginning.
