A Few New Instruments

Here are a couple of new instruments, just recently completed. One is a birdseye maple with pau forro trim. It was recently shipped to a customer in Yokohama, Japan. The other instrument is a wooden ended special Professional Model, of bubinga with pau ferro and bloodwood trim. Here are the comments of the new owner:
"Hi Frank,
Just wanted to let you know the concertina arrived safely yesterday afternoon and we love it ! We thought the pictures you posted on the web site were beautiful and of course it's even more so in person. Thanks very much for your fine work. The bubinga wood and the trim woods are great and we love the way you oriented the grain on the ends and the way you did the handles, beautiful stuff. Now it's on to learning to
play it. Would it be possible for us to get a copy of your concertina tutor ? Once again, thank you for building us a beautiful musical instrument>"
