Hi there Ani,

things are really good for me. The music is going well, the cigar box guitars, the fiddles, the basses, the ukuleles and the harmonicas.

Best of luck with your new technology ! !

Hi there Ani,

what a fantastic looking mandolin. I hope you are truly proud of your outstanding work.

Thanks for spotting my really ratty stand up bass that I threw together overnight last year. It sounds great, but ,as it was a quick build, it is awkward to play as I didn't bother to angle the neck. 

I hope your bass build is as successful as your other instruments.

I bought a cheap imitation 'mandocaster' a few months ago. Sounds good through a good amp.

As for me, I'm still alive which surprises a lot of people. Keep well........

Hi "honey",
not spoken for a while and I was wondering how you are? I really like the white electric mandolin. Bought myself a really cheap electro/acoustic 'f' mandolin a few weels ago but have had not chance to do much with it as I have been getting fiddle practice in and rehearsing for the already started gigging season and building bass instruments.

Hi Ani,
Thank you for the friend invite. Great looking mandolin you've made - nice to see the pics showing the work in progress. I try to do that but get carried away so I usually end up with one of the box and one of the finished guitar.
Regards,
David

Seriously, you are a master craftsman. I'm shocked at how beautiful the mandolin is.

Yep Ani thats the hard part letting go but hey you can just build another one thats the way you have to look at it - but really the first should always be a keeper - i sold my first and now i wish i'd kept it but it's gone so ! - out of the 9 i have built i just have the Mayorga four string left which i'm gonna keep as it was number two
did you see the Lap Steel i just finished ?
i'm just on with four plank guitars for the Penrith Guitar show may 16th just hope i can get them done in time !
good to hear from you
keep well
juju.

be looking forward to seeing build #2
take care
juju :-)
