http://www.clarkmandolins.com) for a guitar bodied octave mandolin (GBOM). I still have my 2009 Will Kimble octave—and that one is a beast tonally, but a bit of a challenge ergonomically. I’ve wanted a GBOM for awhile (ever since seeing Tim O’Brien with his Nugget years ago). Austin did an incredible job with this octave and hope to have videos of it in the near future.
