September 12, 2012 | Sorensen Sprite JM sneak peak
We were pretty impressed with the asymmetrical 2-point mandolin of California builder Steve Sorensen in our hands-on review last spring. So much so, we decided to have him craft one of our own. We've been kept in the loop with the progress from choosing back and sides, bending and as you can see pictured below, the gluing of the body. It's really starting to look like an instrument.
We're giving Steve a long leash, allowing fresh artistic aesthetic on finish (blue-burst), inlay (block fret and custom headstock), and his signature "Slash" sound holes. Of course we're having it voiced for jazz, chord comping and soloing capacity.
We can hardly wait!
