    Very cool indeed, mrt10x. As fishing is my business, I'd love to see more. You should start a new thread with more detail shots. What model is the base for your instrument? The half-herringbone binding strikes me as an intriuguing nod to the very old fashioned.

    Hey, Eugene!

    Haggard "Visage," huh?? Boy, jus' looks like an ol' bowlback to me.

    BTW... I didn't know ol' Merle even made mandolins!

    mrt10x,

    Your face says it all, man! You look like jus' 'bout the proudest mandolin owner I've ever seen... and rightfully so!!

    The custom inlay work is AWESOME! Did Bruce & Co. do it for you, or was it aftermarket? Sorta makes me wanna go out and get a motorcycle (my hobby) inlaid on my mando. In fact I would, 'cept, y'see, I've been savin' up to buy a Haggard "Visage"...

    Enjoy your "piece of art," buddy!

    mrt10x: #Nice inlay work -- it appears that you've combined your two passions with this new mandolin. #By any chance do you also have mandolins inlayed in your favorite fly rod?

    Hey Mad Dawg!

    Hey, Mandodude -

    That's funny. I used to play in a band called "Haggard Visage..."

    I must apologize for my predilection towards gross verbosity and the resultant obfuscation that it induces. By "haggard visage," I had referred to my wildly haired mug. The ol' 'tater bug is by Martin (was Merle a nickname for Martin?). Maybe I'll post another picture of its considerably less haggard visage elsewhere.

    Haggard Visage probably looks and smells a lot better than a Haggis Visage...

    Hmmm... someone needs to come up with a tune called the Haggis Reel.

    Eugene, I can see that, like myself, you are blessed with the gift of gab. I, too, set out at one point to purloin a "Haggard Visage" of my own, but unfortunately for yours truly, my efforts were rendered nugatory by the interposition of subterfuges. Hopefully, I will soon overcome these negative contrivances, set myself off of this wicked path of sin, and take my rightful place among the lesser known visages of history. I thank you for the inspiration.
    We few, we happy few.

    Ah jbrwky,

    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    I once felt the urge to write poetry & as a Texan found that quite alarming. Went to the Doctor to find out what was causing it. Turned out my underwear was to tight......cured by "Fruit of the Loom"

    So maybe you Poet's just need some new drawers......

    I would prefer that my income resembled his (side-benefit: my MAS would know no limits -- except perhaps my wife)

    I did a quick search on the Internet and found this image under "Haggard Visage".

    The truth is out. We were born conjoined at the wildly haired mug. After corrective surgery and decades of therapy, I'm feeling much better. Poor Merle, on the other hand...
