This 2019 Blues Hardware A model with Oval Hole is pretty nice. It is yet another example of great work by Tom Sheehy, who likes to blend old-world methods and new technologies. Built with Pacific Madrone back and sides, Maple neck and Spruce top.

The snakehead peghead has a planet inlaid at top, in the Maple (or Sycamore), overlay. Bone nut. Radiused Brazilian Cherry fingerboard and 2-pc adjustable bridge.
The carved Spruce top has a nice oval soundhole, with wooden inside binding. The body is bound with flecked Sycamore around back edge, and top edge shows complex bindings of two layers of flecked Sycamore.

This mandolin is set-up to go and plays well. Comes with its original hard case.
