Warmest Holiday wishes from Wiens mandolins! It’s that time of year when Luthiers around the world are busy in their workshops making toys for all the string-picking boys & girls out there. I hope you find something fun to play under your Christmas tree or Festivus pole this year.
Speaking of fantastic gift items. Wiens F5 #41 is available to those boys & girls that have been good this year. Just tell Santa you want it and to drop me a line and I’ll arrange to have him haul it down your chimney Christmas Eve. Right now the relative value of the Canadian dollar makes it a good time for Americans to buy from Canada (Where Santa lives).
On the tech front, It’s been a full month since the launch of the new Wiens mandolin website and I’m pleased to see that people are enjoying it. Based on my web stats, there’s been over 8000 views from around the world and I’ve had a lot of messages with positive feedback. I’ll keep trying to make it better as I go, so Keep coming back as I’ll continually be adding more mando content and tweaking the site.
That’s all for now. Have yourself a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
