  • Sorensen Pacifica USED.

    This is my second Pacifica from Steve. Its another beauty in sound and looks. Engelmann spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, ebony fretboard and bridge, James tailpiece, bound maple pickguard, abalone logo and inlay and a fantastic Bobelock fibreglass case with hygrometer and case cover.

    The sound is truly awesome. It is one of the loudest mandolins I've ever heard with a very powerful chop. This great volume comes with richness, depth, warmth and subtlety and an equally good response to a light touch. From bluegrass to folk, and classical this beauty can do it all. If I didn't have too many at home I would be taking it to join my collection.

    In good shape with some pick marks on the top, nothing through the finish.

  • Grit Laskin 'Origins of Bluegrass' guitar.

    From Grit.

    "-next we see the first of the other 3 original members of the Blue Grass Boys (this part drove me a bit nuts since personal changed frequently as the years went by, later—1945-- including Flatt & Scruggs as well). The three originals, which I’ve depicted, were: Clyde Moody on guitar, Tommy Magness on Fiddle and Bill Wesbrooks on bass.

    -Since Monroe’s appearance at the Grand Ole Opry was pivotal to his early growing fame, I included a poster from one of his earlier appearances. The poster’s first appearance is as it leans into the design in the midst of the band members."

  • Grit Laskin 'Origins of Bluegrass' guitar.

    My Current build by Grit Laskin is under way. I asked for a Bluegrass theme.

    From Grit "After much thought I chose to focus entirely on Bill Monroe, and the very beginning moments of Bluegrass. I’m calling this design “Origins”. Here is what you’re going to see…

    Starting at the headstock and moving up the neck:

    -A portrait of an older Bill, playing his mandolin (a mandolin HAD to appear, not just because of Monroe’s legend, but because I’m making this for YOU!).

    -still in the headstock we begin the history lesson - we see the label from the first single-song record that Monroe made, in 1940, “Mule Skinner Blues”, recording with his ‘blue grass boys”.
