“I counted the minutes until the box warmed up but it was well worth the wait.
I’ve played a lot of mandolins in my 63.5 years, including an Ellis, Duff, Gilchrist, old f-style Gibsons and Collings (during the year I lived in Nashville in 2004 where I spent Saturdays at Gruhn Guitars), so I can say from my experience you are definitely in that class of craftsman.
This mandolin is extraordinary in all ways: more thang anything it sounds great and is a joy to play.
How you have kept your prices modest is not clear to me.”   Ron Tobias, owner   April 2020
