Dear Mark,

If you can wait a few months for a beautiful handmade mandolin, then check out Davy Stuart, a luthier in New Zealand. Wesley S brought over his new Davy Stuart octave mandolin the other weekend, and let me tell you, it was lovely to hold and it sounded fantastic. And you can't beat the price, either.

Wesley also has a Webber A-style mandolin, which sounds wonderful, too. They're a bit expensive, but lovely.

All the best, Áine
