Built in 2019 as a showpiece by Mark Franzke in Prairie Village, Kansas to commemorate the 99th instrument built. This is a one-of-a-kind design, and features a continuous vine inlay of maple running from the headstock through the fretboard and onto the pickguard, and armrest. Asymmetric two-point design with gloss black top and satin finish on the rest of the mandolin.
Decorative center neck laminations, and fixed twin carbon fiber neck reinforcement for stiffness and sustain.
