April 27, 2015 | New review: Marty Jacobson
Introducing Smyrna Georgia builder, Martin Jacobson. We first encountered his work about a year ago when reporting on Alan O.W. Barne's recording, "The Wesley Project" who featured one of the craftsman's instruments. Since then, we've had subsequent conversations with Marty regarding jazz voicing for mandolins, and other of his future design ideas. Now, given the unique privilege of a hands-on evaluation of one of his designs recently, his Nautilus jazz-voiced prototype mandolin, we bring you a more detailed perspective of his craft in our latest addition to our Builders of the 21st Century.
Read review: Jacobson "Nautilus" A-body Mandolin
"Though relatively early in his career, Marty is already well known for his cosmetics and design departures, and this instrument is a brilliant example of his creative imagination."
