LOL, He's on vacation.....
Hooda thunk it? She's a beauty. Nicely photographed, too.
Thanks Rog. And thanks for pointing out the dedication & patients in completing this project
Jup's just trying to make me look better. 4 1/2 years has to be some kind of record.
Thanks Rick. Creative photography is one of the keys to a good looking build. If you know what I mean
Ah yes - the true secret of craftsmanship.
Really beautiful work nosmo!! I think it must be something with mando's...it took me somewhere between 4 and 6 years to build mine
Awesome build. Looks fantastic. Well done Nosmo.
Really well done Nosmo!
Looks wonderful!! Great job nosmo.
My God! She is beautiful!
BTW, Nosmo, do your Mandos have Verzi's?
Thank you very much.
I have no idea what that is.
Nice rumor Rick
(Nosmo's got Verzi's)
Well, just don't kiss him on the mouth.
That doesn't have anything to do with Verzi's, but just good advice !
Anyway, it would be his mandolins, not Nosmo what has Verzi's.
OK! For you juvenile delinquents with naughty minds;
Gettin’ tired of polishing the classical. I go back & forth between just making it work and making it pretty. Remember, this is a cheap 1970’s beater that started out as a repair.
At this point, I pretty much just want to make it work. It’ll look like it’ll look.
I made some clamping cauls for the bridge out of some unknown soft wood. Drilled 2 small holes through the saddle slot for alignment.
You’ll notice I didn’t make a new bridge. One of the many trade-offs with the working/pretty thing.
Once the bridge location was established with string & ruler, I drilled the holes for the alignment pins (or, as I like to call them “little brads”)
I wish I had one of those fancy schmancy vacuum clamps. But I don’t.
Looks like I installed the frets too. Yep. All leveled, beveled and kind of polished. Almost done with this one. Just need the tuners installed. And a nut. And a saddle. And strings. And a set up.
That mandolin is exquisite. Perfection.
Digging the acoustic!
