Latest mandolin from the workshop. An assymetrical two point, short scale (13in). Based on a Lyon and Healy I imported into Australia about 5 years ago, made around 1924. This mandolin is the sweetest and most gorgous sounding mandolin I have ever had the pleasure of playing so is very pleasing. Quite an improvement on the original. It goes off to the USA to it's new owner this week. I shall miss it. Woods are Swiss Spruce for the top, European Maple back and sides, Mahogany neck, Ebony bindings and Gidgee pickguard. First one I have made like this so a few screwups had to be fixed, but over all very nice looking mandolin. Very time consuming and tricky to make, but the sound is well worth the trouble.
