    Last week I was able to take home my personal custom ResoOctave built by ResoDude. We collaborated on the art and design of the mandolin. Rob pulled out all the stops on the build. The concept was to make it look like it's been around a long, long time (similar to much of my artwork) it's a warm and loud beast that I hope to eventually tame
    I hope we can work together again on another project. Rob can give you the exact scale length but I remember it being about 21.75" it has some crazy wood!

    That's wild!

    Also, take it from another reso guitar fanatic (at least in the guitar world)... there is no taming the beast. You just have to run with it.

    There are so many great details, big & small, in the build. Please post a recording!

    I see your Harmony? Airline? tenor lurking in the back. Just remember, she needs loving as well

    I've been meaning to post these for awhile. I sold my Beard Bouzouki (among other things) last year and picked up these beauties:

    A Crump Octave (came in after a bit more than 2 year wait), a Nyberg bouzouki (ordered and delivered in 2016), and a 1923 Bacon and Day Tenor Banjo to scare the cats. :^)

    Well Michael, thanks for this, because it solves a longstanding mystery for me about who designed this instrument he used with Patrick Street!

But after playing it a few years I found out that the sound that the pin brigde construction is generating wasn't my thing anymore. I wanted the tone of the floating bridge, that reminds me more on that greek bouzouki tone.

    great, my newish refurbished computer wouldn't post pictures. i'll figure it out.

    i traded two nice instruments for this abnett. one a quite rare preston english guitar but i couldn't sell it locally and it would take forever to sell internationally. but i decided i am not a collector, i am a player and i play bouzoukis a lot. so this was a deal of a lifetime for me. it's a powerful rich sounding zouk. love it. and came with a calton case. i tried to get abnett to make me a cittern before he retired but he didn't want to, so this is next best. long scale. 25 3/4 inches, but i have played greek bouzoikis for decades so i am used to the longer scale.

    CGDA or CGDG John, but gonna try and steer myself away from dropping the high note as I do that a lot on my tenor guitar/zouk

    Here it is following staining - the back is pear as it was a really nice grain, and I wanted something different - so this colour seemed spot on
