Standard Mandolin #13 “in the white”

The new Standard mandolin has gone through the setting up procedure and you can see it strung-up, in the white, below.

I’m very pleased with the way it plays and sounds. The next step is to strip it back down, a final sand, and apply the finish. I use an open pour shellac finish, which gives a very natural satin sheen to the instrument and, thankfully, doesn’t take the same amount of time as French polishing!
