Definitely outside the box! Looks great. I wonder how the mango sound is compared to Jeffrey's monkey pod guitars.

This looks to be a fun and inspiring Healdsburg festival!
Work like this makes the trip so worthwhile.
Good stuff, Jeff!

The initial coats have been applied to "THE MANGO TREE" guitar. Take note, Jeff has made changes to the inlays of the back plate. He never stops innovating…

That is one great guitar.

What can you tell me about the back braces, they have sparked my interest.

Thanks
Stu

Default Indeed THE MANGO TREE was a head turner

Pictures speak louder. Here goes…

I think Paul likes what he saw.

Seeing Jeffrey's guitars used to remind me of Laksa, now I think Nam Doc Mai.

Thanks for the pics Adam

It was my honor to meet Michael Chapdelaine in person and heard him played live, like a few feet away.

The Mango guitar was a head-turner for sure...and had a great sound! It was great meeting you at our Sunday morning gathering.

holy smokes, that looks incredible. I do feel the need to apologize, though. When I first saw the top of the guitar, I was like "oooh boy... really?". But man, was i wrong! This is an absolute treasure of a guitar! from the headstock down to the lower bout, she's a beaute.
