When I was a teenager I was given a gibson A-model mandolin that was in poor shape. so I fixed it up and sold it for 65 dollars.Years later I saw one in a music repair shop and got permision to take all the measurements I needed to build one for myself.I took a long time to build it so that I could be sure I was doing all the right things so that it would actually sound good. Well time paid off because it sounds great.The maple,walnut,ebony,ash and mahogany all give it great contrast.
