Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

June 3, 2011 | Brian Lock 2-Point in Cafe Classifieds

We reviewed his work a couple years ago and remain pretty impressed with the craft of Pecos, New Mexico builder Brian Lock. Now is the opportunity for someone's good fortune to pick up this instrument, at a price we consider quite reasonable. Built in 2009, it's had some months to season in, with some occasional tweaks by the builder himself.

From Brian: "This mandolin features Red spruce top, Red maple back, sides,neck. Curly Koa binding and headstock veneer. Ebony fingerboard and bridge. Floating ebony pickguard. Monteleone style tailpiece. Gold Schaller tuners. Bone point protectors. Hand rubbed Spirit Varnish. I completed this instrument in 2009, it was the second mandolin built in my 2-point signature design , and has been keeping me company in my workshop."

Don't let this one get by you!
