Have a look at this fabulous wood! 50 years resting on top of the ground but under leaf cover to season slowly in the log.Irish yew over 250 years old.Cut to book match back , sides and necks for mandolin , busuki , tenor guitar and mandola. limited stock as you can imagine. This would be an exceptional instrument as this type of wood is very rare and can usually only be got in veneer format.
The size of the instrument belies the fact that forty five hours of work are involved to finish it . Any other woods can be used at the request of the costumer. I also do a larger version with a 450 mm string length, sometimes called a mandola or mando- cello.( see the page “busuky “) The normal four course stringing can be increased to five or six pairs.
