  8. Re: Vega Cylinder Back Style #207 - Top of the Line!

    If she plays nearly as good as she looks, it is very reasonably priced.

    Most makers would charge well over double for something like that even with a more standard carved back.

    I would sell my...

    Re: Washburn Model 1915

    No problem Mick. It is really nice rosewood and produces such a lovely tone.
    It is hard to imagine that rosewood would be used for anything other than tone wood.

    Re: Washburn Model 1915

    This one first caught my eye because of the two-point design.
    Before this I had only noodled around on a Kentucky F-style mando I bought for my daughter a few years back.

    Re: Washburn Model 1915

    As for the date, I gather that it could have been made anytime between 1917-1922, correct?

    Being relatively new to mandolins I feel very fortunate to have stumbled across this one.

    I suppose this is the original carrying case that came with the mando.
    It is canvas trimmed with leather and in very poor condition.
    The case must have done its job well as the instrument...

    Re: Washburn Model 1915

    Thank you Bill.

    I am sure it could be versatile.
    It would not fit well in Bluegrass.
    This one does not have the volume or cut for that style.

    Any tips on how to best post a sound sample?
