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."

August 17, 2014 | California's Steve Sorensen


We were first introduced to the wood wizardry of Santa Clarita builder Steve Sorensen in April of 2012, when we had the chance for a hands on review of one of his asymmetrical two point mandolins. You can read all about it here.

Of course, we fell in love with his craftsmanship and commissioned a signature model of our own, upgrading with some custom features like the block fret inlay, custom gold tailpiece, and our favorite finish, blueburst. The instrument has become one of our first-call stage instruments.
