Welcome to Mandomutt!

Welcome to MandoMutt!!! Thanks for dropping in on our website. MandoMutt, Delilah (aka L’il Pup) and I are so glad you’re here and we hope you’ll enjoy your visit. Whether you’re here looking at one of our acoustic stringed instruments to purchase, trade or just “window shopping”, we hope you like what you see and that you’ll add us to your web favorites and continue to check back with us periodically to check our inventory. We have several new additions to our inventory this week including;

Skip Kelley Mandolins MandoMutt has been a huge fan of Kelley mandolins since we were first introduced in early 2009. I’m sure folks get tired of hearing me talk about how amazing they sound. I love Skip Kelley mandolins so much that I bought a Redwood topped model a couple years back and I tell folks about my mandolin all the time and yet, Kelley mandolins are still relatively unknown in the mandolin world. That may soon change, as Adam Steffey has recently taken possession of a 2015 Skip Kelley F-5. Mr. Steffey is very impressed and commented quite favorably about his new mandolin’s power, responsiveness (we’ve been talking about that for years!) and playability. Keep your eyes and ears open for some upcoming Steffey videos and projects with his Kelley F-5. MandoMutt is the exclusive dealer for Skip Kelley mandolins. Purchase yours soon!

A word about the MandoMutt Beyond Beast award. As many of our frequent visitors know, our very best instruments may be awarded as a Beyond Beast. You may wonder, just how do we determine a Beyond Beast. We actually have a 30 point number system and six categories, with five being the highest and one being the lowest score in each category. An instrument must score a 28 out 30, or better to be recognized as a Beyond Beast. The six categories are: 1) Tone 2) Volume 3) Fit and Finish 4) Set up and Playability 5) Appointments (bling?) 6) Cosmetic Condition (wear and tear)

Chatter Box

In Dueteronomy 32:4 Moses tells the people of Israel: He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgement; a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. Of course, this is not the first or only time that God and/or Jesus is referred to as “the Rock”.  To me, this reference says that God never changes. He is the “Solid Rock”, hard and strong. I can lean of “the Rock”, rely on “the Rock” and, at times, hide behind “the Rock”. He is “a God of truth”. Yes, God never lies and his word is truth and it never changes. He is “without iniquity”.  No, He never sins. God hates sin and that too, will never change.  Moses also says; “his work is perfect”. All of God’s creation is perfect and flawless, as is his holy word.

I take great and complete comfort in this verse. Each time I read this verse, I am reminded of how awesome God is. His wonders are magnificent and glorious. There is a reason for everything. I may never know God’s reason, but on occasion, He does reveal Himself to me and I am left speechless, humbled and in complete awe. My faith can only grow each time I read Deuteronomy 32:4.

Thought for the day; Does anyone else think that Donald Trump (sorry, but I have a difficult time voting for a presidential candidate named Donald) will effect the upcoming election in the same way Ross Perot did in 1992?
