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 12, 2015 | Jacobson Nautilus available

Yikes! This gem just popped up on the Cafe Classifieds, a rare unclaimed mandolin by Georgia builder Marty Jacobson. Described as packing "good power and a wealth of high end harmonics," this ovalish hole A-body would be a one of a kind with its Art Deco cosmetics and aesthetic panache.


We reviewed another of his signature Nautilus instruments, a black face mandolin beauty last spring. This is a builder to keep your eye on. We expect him to continue to make a significant impact on the state of modern mandolin building.
