My Mandola on the left has, I think, a lovely voice

This is my Christmas Greeting to my fiddling friends. Have stepped out to our local open mic night, and I Will play "In the Bleak Midwinter" on Christmas Eve at Church  and I have been working on Coventry Carol 

I wish all my friends happy playing and Merry Christmas

Christmas Greetings Toni and Schaick

Not a kit. All of the wood was chosen, measured, cut, shaped, sanded, fitted, glued, assembled, finished, setup and adjusted by me. The tuners, tailpiece and strings were purchased ready made.
