mandonaught S has the sides bent, neck & tail blocks in, linings kerked and glued in and the back braced and glued on.


I've heard of guitar porn before, but never knew what it meant.......









mandolin & mandola.........

new starts!!

Once you're in the bending frame of mind, things just kinda take off!!!

so........

I'm doing a cutaway mandola and a mandonaught S

Mandola first..... sides bent, Neck & tail blocks in place.
all done!!

I'm really pleased with how it's turned out.

I had to leave out the preamp as the thinnest one I could find was still too thick to fit on the edge, but I've ordered an external preamp.....

Balance on the strap is good & it's not at all neck heavy, and it holds it's tune well so far too.

here's a sample of it, but be warned I'm using a Squier SP10 practice amp as a preamp then out of the phones socket to the PC, so not EXACTLY studio situation!!
