Rantz Rhythmz custom built instruments

The next mandolin is underway!

This will be a special project because the name of this instrument will be “The Thula.” Thula was my grandmother’s name on my dad’s side of the family, she was an accomplished violinist and her story is remarkable.

First step, new tooling!!!
