New Storefront Opening Soon!

New Storefront Opening Soon! We hope to have the new storefront open for business within the next few weeks!  Signs are going up and furniture being moved in. I plan on doing a lot more blogging once I am in workshop again to let you all know what I am up to in my work.  Right now, I am working on a mandolin commission for an F-style Mandolin.  I am working out of my basement right now and look forward to moving up into the new space. Stay Tuned!  MARTY

Acoustic Musician Review

Acoustic MusicianThe Macica Mandolin

He places reinforcements above and below the F-holes to strengthen the vulnerable top area.
