John’s mandolin is now complete and looking very handsome,
if I do say so myself!
Visually, the Brazilian mahogany back, sides and neck, the
cocobolo fretboard and bridge and thuya burl details work incredibly well, all really
complementing each other nicely. It’s only been strung up for a few hours but
already I’m very happy with its woody tone. Unlike most of my “Standard” mandolins, this
one has the upgrade of a rosette, which must make this one, a “Standard Custom”?
Below are some more photos for you; hope you like it.....
