Hand Crafted Mandolins
By Johnny Adams
The body can be upgraded to roasted maple - birdseye (shown below) or curly.  This process brings out the tone and volume like it has aged for years.  The color is beautiful without stain.

SN057 was my first attempt at an oval hole with a rosette.  This unit was ordered by and delivered to Mr. Gary Brody of Brentwood, TN.  These photos show the unit before it received a Tru-Oil finish.  The roasted maple along with a cedar top gave it an unbelievable sound with purity and great volume.
