This custom build was completed in May, 2023 for a good friend and member of our local, weekly old time/celtic jam. For her, a 19″ scale length is the best of all worlds.. as close as we could come without the transposing involved with a mandola! It does require heavier strings than my typical 22 3/4″ octave scale length, so I mix sets of single strings to get it just right. It also features:

–  artist grade, x-braced Englemenn top

– figured maple back, sides and neck

-2 5/8″ rib thickness

– Rubner tuners

– James tailpiece in silver with engraved “Pomeroy” cover

– shop built adjustable bridge in ebony

– light, natural oil varnish finish
