    Being the Proud Dad, I wanted to share my new creation with all of you. #She arrived on Sunday and came from my new kit, and she is wonderful!! #My new bouncing baby Mill Creek Octave Mandolin.

    Looks classic! Nice stuff Don! I have a feeling you will be selling out the first run pretty quick.

    ....And here is where the problem is..... ( I only made a run of 12 kits to start with....Rut Roh) I work alone and each kit is made by me so I can only do a few at a time.
    I already have almost all of them spoken for...(this is a good thing though)
