Here's a word from Alan about the mandolin in this video, "The mandolin Iím playing is an almost exact replica of the first mandolin I ever played that was owned and played by my Dad. He bought a 50ís A40 and put block inlay in the neck and inlaid flowerpot and Gibson inlaid in the peghead. I bought this from a dear friend and had the same thing done. He wouldnít share who made it but itís a A40 copy on steroids. It has a raised and radiused neck and fingerboard and curly maple back and sides. Itís a HOSS!!"
