Another excellent mandolin family instrument from Northern California builder David Dart. The radius to the fingerboard makes it quite easy to play, and the thin, shellac/French polish finish has a lovely patina that will only get even better. The floating ebony pickguard is a nice touch, and can be removed if needed ,but Dave mounts his pickguards well below the level of the strings so even those who dislike most mandolin 'guards probably won't find that this one gets in their way. Great woody tone and lots of volume.
