    Darby seems like a nice guy and I've heard a few of his Rose mandolins and they are a great value. #But, his name last name is "Boofer" according to his business card.

    Scotti,

    Darby's seen the birdseye and he was very iimpressed. If you remind him it was at the eastman get together near DC and it's an Old Wave.

    they are supposed to be Eastern Michigan maple...however, 74000 on the right is so so so light weight, I have to think that it is simply some East Coast soft maple
