    Default NMD road trip!

    While I知 waiting in the drive thru...
    My detour on my home trip paid off! I知 the proud owner of a dream mandolin. It値l be another long day of driving before I get to spend any quality time with it beyond the beautiful few minutes I spent at Mark痴 place but I can tell it値l be with me for decades

    Oh yes, I can see the BRW now - the shot in the Newbies thread makes it hard to see the BRW on the peghead and the label. Congratulations! I think a 2-point is an excellent compromise between the functional look of an A and the braggadocio of an F. And I bet this one sounds great, too.

    The drive thru ... Like at Burger King! "I'd like a Whopper with cheese". And this comes out the window! Where is this BK?
    Fantastic mandolin! Enjoy it for many years.

    Ooops. 3-pointer! One of those points was hiding when I looked at the pictures.

    Haha the drive through was the first time I got to post a pic since I was on the road. I was too distracted by the mandolin to think of posting it before I left from picking it up

    I'll bet that mandolin will distract you for a long time. Looks wonderful & sounds as good as it looks, I'd imagine!
