Making Mandolins for Love, Not Money
Frank Sox of Lexington not only enjoys bluegrass music, he also plays bluegrass mandolin. But he goes further than that: he actually builds mandolins, and is nearing his 100th. He talks about his unusual hobby and how he got started. In his woodshop, he also demonstrates how he builds mandolins and tells us why he doesn’t advertise and isn’t worried if his instruments don’t sell: it’s not for the money, it’s a labor of love.
