If it's not a guitar or a bass guitar discussion, and it's got strings, put it here.

Who made this mandolin?

Postby Murdock Howard » Mon Nov 04, 2013 7:29 am

Trying to find out who
Made this mandolin. It has No writing or serial numbers inside or out, just the logo that inlaid on the headstock. Appears to be high quality and handmade. Any help figuring out the back story would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

If no luck, someone at "Mandolin Cafe" forum might recognize it more readily

certainly handmade from the look of the asymmetric face, and that pick-guard ...

Put up a close up pic of the machines. I will guess it is SE Asian from the general look but the machines could reveal it's origin.
