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."

October 12, 2012 | Sorensen Headstocks

We've always been suckers for a good headstock. This is a part of the instrument that is an often underrated opportunity for self-expression, a twinkling eye into the aesthetic of the builder. Shape, inlay, color, binding, overlay, let alone logo, it's often one of the most identifying features of a mandolin, seen both from a distance and close up.

We enjoyed looking over this in-progress batch from California builder Steve Sorensen.
