We have photos of the beginning stages of three new instruments coming soon- a lead mandolin, a large body mandolin and a mandola – being made for us by Australian luthier Richard Morgan. These are Adirondack Spruce soundboard and Queensmaple sides and back instruments similar to the absolutely stunning RM-L3 lead mandolin we had from Richard Morgan. Richard tells us that the large body mandolin and the mandola will feature a new innovation, a mute system that will allow the players to practice at nights without disturbing the neighbors!
