Some fans of O'Dell mandolins have expressed concern that Keith is currently making so many electric guitars and amplifiers. His mandolins are amazing, and the skills required to make good mandolins are hard to find. It's true, he is making fewer mandolins. Customer interest and demand is stronger in the electric guitar and amplifier market, but Keith hasn't abandoned mandolin making. He still loves the challenge of making these small, powerful and uniquely beautiful instruments. Now, however, he only makes them on a custom order basis. If you yearn for an O'Dell mandolin-acoustic or electric-reach out to Keith and reserve yourself a slot for a build.
