    Did you adapt any of Kerman's ideas into your designs?

    Thanks - I was wondering if it had an inner soundboard or not. I'd love to play it either way.

    Thanks; I've been curious about Israeli mandolins ever since I heard about how the tradition started, and the new mandolin designs and fine players.
