Number 39

This is a mandolin I'm currently working on for a customer in the USA.  It has a flat top and back but is braced differently to my previous flat-top mandos.  I got the idea from well-known builder Graham McDonald, but I made some detail changes to make it my own.  The soundboard is Sitka Spruce and the back and sides are Western Australian She-oak.  The first two pics show the top and back and the second two were taken during a pause when bending the sides.  The She-oak will look spectacular after I apply the finish.
