Nautilus #17 mark II

This mandolin is the product of much experimentation. The resulting mandolin is a good representation of everything I think a modern transverse-braced mandolin should be. Powerful, boomy bass, fat midrange, and pleasant, clean trebles with plenty of presence. The sustain is excellent, and it is very comfortable to play. On top of all that, it’s pretty, and has lots of little visual treats to discover when you are handling it.

Here’s a nice post from Mark about his new instrument. Thanks, Mark, for your early and continuing support and encouragement.
