  2. Re: A New Mulerskinner Instruments A5 build starts...

    Well, Mr. Muleskinner moves quick and just sent me an update. He milled down that board and was able to get a back, sides and neck for my instrument and another back and sides set for another...
  3. Re: A New Mulerskinner Instruments A5 build starts...

    Yes, Andy really makes wonderful choices for tonewood (both from a visual and auditory standpoint).

    Some of my favorites are the back for my octave mandolin and this sycamore mando (I think he had...

    Contemporary Pumpkin Tops?

    Hey all, so I somehow (and very luckily) find myself in the midst of a custom build…well perhaps at the very beginning stages. I head to a luthier friend’s shop next week to pick my tone wood pieces...

    Fair point, but I do believe there is a threshold. I get that zero people are listening on high fidelity speakers at home in their acoustically treated listening rooms...and in this day and age...

    Excellent suggestions and input everyone. For the sake of this I was going for "new" instruments...used is an entirely different rabbit hole. Can't believe I forgot Big Muddy and other pancake/ A-N...
