Dear Don, Thank you so much for the incredible mandolin. It is beautiful to look at, the wood and the craftsmanship, and also to listen to. The sound is so clear and full, and it plays so nicely. The action is low and it feels comfortable in my hands. I’m not one of those disciplined musicians who plays for hours, but I’ve been inspired to play every day since I got this beautiful instrument. I’ve always been the guitar player, but all those melodies I’ve been backing up all those years are coming out on the mandolin. I’m on summer vacation, from teaching school, and playing my new mandolin is one of my summer projects. What fun! Hope to see you again some time soon.
