Davy Stuart Mandola

These are pictures of my new (december 2002) mandola, built by Davy Stuart from New Zealand.
Specs: Length 77.5cm Width 32cm Scale 46cm/18" in mahogany with spruce top.
The standard model MLP except the zero fret I asked for.
The pictures are shot by Davy.
This is going to replace my 10-string cittern in sessions. It sounds and looks real cool.

The front view. The actual color is not as white as it looks here.

The back


Before the top is glued on

The inside view of the top

Putting it all together

I hope I didn't have a too bad influence on your Instrument Aquiry Syndrome :-)
