The mandolin raffle features a M. David custom mandolin, a gorgeous handcrafted 2 point style mandolin from Berkeley, CA luthier Milton David McClaskey. Featuring claro walnut back, Adirondack soundboard, curly red maple neck and ebony fingerboard. This is a 2018 instrument, very lightly used and in like-new condition. Tickets are $25.
