    OK, Mr. Beimborn, go ahead and fess up, you bought these from the classifieds right out from under my nose when I wasn't looking.

    Somewhere there's a builder out there who should resurrect those body styles. Who's gonna give it a try??

    Go there to see the "Student" model. I've got one of these at home and it's quite respectable.

    Yeah, those went fast. Just as well, I might have been tempted. They're a handsome design, especially the one with the cuts in the lower bout -- Artist?

    Wye,
    When it was ON HOLD I e-mailed requesting the detailed pictures even though it was spoken for and didn't get a reply. If you search under Post a Picture of Your Mandolin for Bacon you will find pictures of both of them.

    John, if you resurrect one of those Bacons you'll have the honors to name the body shape. How about B#

    I have an artist model and Peter Mix expressed interest in possibly doing a clone.
