Slide The Mando Shop is closing. I am retiring.

Pictured here is a TKD mandolin, bearing my initials. I partnered with a luthier shop in China to do the initial build. It was a true collaboration as they allowed me to coach them to build a better mandolin.

As early as the first generation, pictured in the video above, I knew I had something special. After tap tuning the top, I could hardly believe how good they sound. I still have some second generation TKDs available and a very small stock of the third and last generation TKDs just arrived.

To all those who supported me over the years, a heartfelt thank you! It was you that made The Mando Shop such a joy.
