I made this model after hearing some of Oscar Aleman's recordings using a resonator guitar. I took it to the Samois festival where players came from all over the campsite with the enquiry "What the **** is that? I can hear it 100 yards away!" It has the Selmer body size and shape so it feels familiar. The body is in Imbuia with a laminated front for strength. It has been dubbed "The Selmernator"!
Over the years I have made all the mandolin family with the exception of Mando Bass. Particularly popular have been the long necked models - Irish Bouzouki, Octave Mandola and their variations. I have also made some 5 course instruments for customers in the Middle East.
