Greetings to you all! I hope everyone is having a nice holiday season. In reflecting back on the last year, I can say it was a good one, as well as a year of some changes in the shop. The A-style mandolins seem to be the popular vote for the year. These mandolins have a simplicity that I like without compromising master craft quality.
I finished and am in process of making another Macica guitar. I am enjoying the process as well as looking forward to the upcoming guitar making class at the Maplewood Center for Common Craft this fall. http://www.maplewoodcraft.com/
The handmade cello boxes have been selling very well. I am thankful to Metropolitan Music for putting them in their catalog. It has been a great asset for the workshop.
And so…. now we look forward to 2014….. From our family to yours, may you have a Happy Holiday Season!
With much thanks!
Martin Macica and family
