Sandy Sanderson
A New Zealander, Sandy built these mandolins from a local timber called swamp kauri. According to Sandy, "The wood is very dense and gives a wonderful resonant and rich tone, and amazing sustain. This is also helped by the carbon fibre reinforcement in the neck (no truss rod!)"
     Unfortunately, a motorcycle accident has forced Sandy to stop building. You can reach him by e-mail, or check out his Web site.
