This are two A5 Type Mandolins wich I'm making simultaneously. They are slightly different as one will have a central sound hole where the other will have 2 F holes. For the rest both have figured Sapele back and sides from the same board, European spruce top logged in England, all blocks, bracing a and kerfing are cut from a log of willow cut from a tree 5 miles down the road. Will spot a Benedetto style tail piece made of Snakewood, fret board, bridge and all bindings will be in Snakewood as well.
The second is following slowly but proceeds well
