Handcrafted by Sim Daley, a former Gibson builder. Daley was one of the primary reasons that Derrington era Gibsons are consistently sensational. Pre-owned Daley mandolins are rarely available for purchase, and, we are told, Sim is no longer building mandolins, which will make them even harder to come by.
