The New Mando
Great excitement today as Adam took delivery of his new Mandolin - a belated Christmas gift from Alan and I. He had been wanting a mandolin for some time now. His old mandolin (which he has had for a couple of years) was only a cheapie and continually was going out of tune when he played. I actually bid on one on Ebay over the Christmas break but it ended up going for more than I was prepared to pay. Adam did some research online and found this beautiful one in America. I ordered it on Christmas Day and he has been anxiously awaiting its arrival. You couldn't wipe the smile off his face when he finally opened the box and saw the quality and workmanship of the instrument. Can't wait to hear him play!
