Here’s the second mandolin from the last batch: another A-5, made with local Anderson Valley redwood & cherry. The redwood is from an old Navarro sheep barn, which was located not far from David’s shop, and the cherry is from an old Philo orchard. Some folks have described its tone as earthy and bell-like.
This unique A-5 is for sale & available to demo at the Dart Instruments showroom in Navarro. Contact David if you’re interested in this instrument or another similar custom one!
