It sings!

Today I fitted the tuning machines and the tailpiece, and made a cover for the truss rod hole. I then strung the mandolin up to pitch and...played it. The strings still need a bit of time to bed down, and I will have to do a second fit of the bridge in a week or so, but I'm very pleased with the tone. Picture to follow in a day or so

Hi Richard,

Kate and I just looking at your mandolin - it looks fabulous.

Looking forward to meeting up for a banjo, mandolin guitar trio!

Best wishes

paul and kate
