    Here's the latest Elkhorn F-5. It's #33 and already with it's happy new owner in Canada. Big leaf Maple/Adirondack. The mandolin sounds really good. Thought I had an mp3 for this one but guess I forgot to record it before I shipped it off; oops!! Enjoy!!

    The sunburst and that grain pattern on the back synergize very nicely.

    That back is a real stunner. Superb wood and an equally superb finish job.

    Nice work all round.

    Wow, Robb, its a nice balance between the colour and the finish. +1 It would be really nice to find out how it sounds.

    I agree that the matt finish sets it off well.

    BTW well set up photographs

    Wow, beautiful work! If I had an F-5 style mando I would want it to look exactly like that one.
