Howdy folks. I have here the latest Celtic F-style mandolin I've built. This one is a dream I have had for a long time. I finally was able to get the engraving fixed just right to do the roses just like I envisioned them. The roses are hand stained meticulously over several hours, and with the engraving, gives them a cool 3D effect. This girl is made with all solid carved spruce for the top, and solid carved figured maple for the back, sides and neck. The neck is fitted with a rosewood fretboard, bone nut, and adjustable truss rod. The top is fitted with scalloped X-tone bars. To further increase the sustain, I have this big baby fitted with a solid cast rose tailpiece. The finish is natural, done with only shellac and a hand rubbed oil. The sound of this mandolin is truly awesome. The highs are clear and smooth, without being edgy. The bass is full and rich and sounds like a male chorus. The action on this mandolin is low, and just begs to be played. If you need a pickup installed, just ask, and I can help you out.

This Mia FM-7E mandola was made here in Greenbrier Arkansas. The top is made of solid carved spruce, and the back, neck and sides are made of solid Carved figured maple. The neck is fitted with an adjustable truss rod, bone nut, and rosewood fretboard. The finish is a very durable hand rubbed shellac and oil. This really protects the instrument, while not damping the sound like a lot of heavy lacquers you find on factory instruments. The sound and bass from this beauty will transport you. The sustain makes you glad to be alive. Now this mandola has a built in pickup with end pin jack. There are several options for instrument color available. Just give me a call when you order. 501-314-8967. In the big picture above, you can see on the right, one of the Mia A-style mandolas, and in the center is a Mia Octave mandolin.

The Pulaski is a personal favorite mandolin made here in my shop in Greenbrier Arkansas. The top is made of solid hand carved and graduated spruce and fitted with scalloped spruce tone bars. The neck plays very easy and is fitted with adjustable truss rods and polished bone nuts. The neck, back and sides are carved from solid flamed maple. The finish is a beautiful shellac and hand rubbed oil, to allow all the beauty of the wood to shine through. Acoustically, the sound is woody, with excellent volume and sustain. This new finish of just shellac and oil makes this mandolin bark like a red bone hound. The travel case shown is included.

Howdy. I am selling the latest Celtic all solid carved A style mandolin I just finished. It has a solid carved spruce top, with solid carved maple, back, sides and neck. The finish is a deep hand rubbed oil and the color is all natural. This one is also fitted with a dual position pickup and end pin jack, so it sounds beautiful acoustically, and through your favorite acoustic amp. I made this one extra durable for all the summer fun you want to have. It would be great on the camp site, bluegrass festival. If you need a pickup installed, just ask, and I can help you out.
Hooray. The Mia A-style Octave mandolin is done. Been working on this baby for a while. Boy does she sound gorgeous. The blending of the chords, deep base and lyrical sustain makes me never want to put this instrument down. It sounds gorgeous. The volume is huge and the bass is delicious. Betty Red has a solid carved spruce top, with solid carved figured maple, back, sides and neck. The neck is fitted with an adjustable truss rod, bone nut, and rosewood fretboard. The finish is a deep hand rubbed oil and shellac with in a rustic red. This octave mandolin has a 22 inch scale length, and is tuned GG-DD-AA-EE, just like a mandolin, but one octave down. This octave mandolin is fitted with medium D'Addario octave mandolin strings
