I've decided to sell the Curly Maple Twin that has been the subject of a build log. Here is the thread:

The Mango Twin was commissioned and reviewed by Jon:

This is a sort-of-longneck concert: the scale length is 16". The usual concert scale length is 15" and a longneck concert usually uses the tenor length of 17". This will give a bit more playing room without substantially altering the basic character of the concert format.

Here are photos in its present state of completion:

The reason I'm offering it for sale now is that there remain two significant decisions that a buyer may want to make. Both of these will affect cost. First, tuners can be friction, geared or PegHeds. Second, the finish can be the basic Tru-Oil approach such as done so nicely by Mya-Moe or a more finely finished Tru-Oil that involves filling and many top coats.

Please PM me if you are interested.
