Fiddly bits!

This week has been a week of fiddly bits! I’ve just completed the tailpiece for Alan’s mandolin and visually I’m very pleased with combination of ebony, cocobolo and brass. What I can do with these tailpieces is shape them to complement the head shape. The main thing is, however, it gives a really firm anchor for the strings which I’m convinced helps sustain.

I’ve also put together these two rosettes; this one is for Sean’s twin-point.

 And this one? Well, I want to introduce a new mandolin, an “A” style, which slots in between my Standard mandolin and the twin-point, giving me a broader model range.

More on this later........
