    Hands down my favorite instrument of the entire festival. Here's an octave mandolin built by Austin Clark. He built it for Joe Craven and it was on display at his booth awaiting it's new owner. I probably put an extra hour into it's break-in period

    Another great Wintergrass. Highlight for me? Octave mando tasting with Darol Anger and Sarah Jarosz.

    Yep, another great Wintergrass. Highlights for me was playing Glasswebs loar, nice dude. Tried to trade him a bunch of stuff about six months ago for it but that didn't work, the Kenny Smith/Grisman tone poems, 4 hour intensive with John Moore and seeing California. What a great weekend as usual.

    Well Chip, maybe if you had included some tires with that Range Rover... (;o)

    Yes, Wintergrass is an exceptional event... got to see many old friends and make some new ones... just a great, great party for anyone into acoustic music and instruments... and people!

    Here's a shot of David Grisman's mandolin aresnal from the Tone Poems live performance. I suspect there will many more "good" photo's from this event in a future publication of the FretBoard Jounal since they were one of the sponsors of the event.

    Sam Albright's mandos were all fantastic players. He had five there, with the four brand new ones each having a different top wood. I'm pretty sure that that Douglas Fir topped one pictured above was my favorite of the bunch.

    Let's see. On the left, 3-pt Gibson F4, Vega cylinderback, L&H Bernado de Pace signature model. Then Loar, Lil' Pup, Epiphone Strand, SS Stewart Snow Queen, and are the two on the right both D'Angelicos?

    I too was pleased and surprised that the Albrights were so nice. Good looking as well.

    Last year, I played and liked Austin Clark's mandolins, but it was after enjoying his larger bodied instruments--guitars, octave mandos--that I realized just how good Austin was. I ordered a mando, which I have enjoyed for several months since arrival.

    Well, speaking of the aforementioned Mr. Cartwright, here's a picture of him and buddy who were both sporting really nice Ellis A-5's. I believe the mandos were both built about the same time. They sounded pretty good too!

    That's my friend Mark Rausch from Silverton OR. Both of our Ellis mandolins were made in 2009. Mine is #150 and Mark's is #162 I think... Played so much mandolin, guitar and bass that my fingers are sore.... but happy.

    Whoa... thanks for the feedback. I think I'll have to pull some more old fir down off the rack. Nice to see everyone. Made it back over the pass and it's snowing again. I'm ready for spring.
