This is my first mandolin – it took me three months in my spare time and I finished it last night – I was amazed at how good it sounds.
The neck is Queensland maple, the back is padouk, the sides Tasmanian blackwood and the top is birdseye maple. I used traditional lutherie techniques and used liquid hide glue throughout the instrument. You can see more photos and the journey of the whole project on my blog
And you can hear what it sounds like here
