Mandolin #384

This interestingly shaped shoulder piece was taken off a full size equestrian breast collar. The final length is easily tweaked shorter or longer by taking in or letting out some of the lacing that forms the headstock/scroll loop. Would also do a good job as an under fret attachment for an A style with the extended fretboard.
