    The eye candy photo doesn't do the real color justice. So here it is in the daylight.

    More proof that green is a great color for mandolins! Thanks, Steve.

    Nice "sunsetburst"!

    Here is another green one from about 10 years ago that I've never posted before.

    That's just your basic old school Condino D-18; the new ones area a lot less traditional than this one and a bit more modern...

    I think it's pretty cool. That neck better be firmly attached or the body's going to slide right out of there.

    Between the two Steves, I'm convinced that even avocado green and goldenrod linoleum from the 70s could translate well into mandolin colours

    I want to keep this thread alive. I'm just finishing up this one below. Inspired by beautiful auroras, it will be part of our Northern Lights series. It is fun to do something a bit different. With that, I have seen a few unusual color schemes lately... Bernabe and Vernon H lets see your stuff!

    I was just editing the photos my daughter took at Camden's Adventure Aquarium and I thought you had the mandolin in a shark tank at first! Great color, Lauri!

    I want to show you blokes my Red Devil. I have an old picture, but then I changed it later to a rail humbucker, which I bought for $3 (I bought 3 for $10).
    Very few used mando's come on the market here, so I had to jump for it.

    I bought this used mando as a black A type for about $5, but it lacked a bridge and tailpiece.
    I had a Hippo tusk that a game farmer gave me about 20 years ago and we cut it up for points and a heelcap. We inserted a mahogany wood block inside like a jazz guitar.

    I imported F tuners, pots, caps, a bridge and tailpiece, and my friend did a cave man inlay in mop on the headstock.
    I slapped it with red glitter paint and voila!!
    Jethro Burns must be smiling.

    On the right is a lap steel I built out of African rosewood and African blackwood.
    I have posted a picture of me playing the Devil elsewhere.

    I don't know if a goldrush counts as unconventional. It's more butterscotch than blonde.

    Love that Goldrush, lack of fingerboard extension is right up my alley!

    I'm probably more unconventional than I am conventional but you have to be when making electrics.
