By heck, it’s cold in the east!
Well, this week has been mainly about completing Brendan’s mandolin and also Standard III, taking their photos and making videos.
Here are a few choice pictures of Brendan’s along with the video.
To say that I’m pleased with the outcome is a bit of an understatement. It looks like it could have been made in the 19th century, which is an aesthetic that I have tried to achieve with my twin-points. I love the Alessi tuners: they work so well, also the combination of the tuners and the Cuban mahogany neck have the feel of an antique hand made shot gun (if that makes sense!)
Anyway, you can judge for yourself.
Now, I should be offering this up for sale but I was approached, last week, by John and he snapped it up.
Here is the finished instrument.
And the video.............
