  This is Mandolin #87.  I have used this mandolin as an oval hole reference for around 7 years.  There is just something about the sound of this mandolin that I like so kept it for myself.  It now has a good home in the hands of the Canberra Mandolin Orchestra's conductor.  
  A blond oval hole #129.  Woods are European Spruce top, European Maple back, sides and neck, ebony bindings and pickguard.  Sounds as good as it looks - gorgeous.
