    Left-Handed 3-Point F4 Mandolin

    I thought I'd share these photos of a rare left-handed F4 that sold here in New Zealand 3 years back.

    It was me bidding against another guy - I wanted to buy on spec (I'm right handed) with the...

    Seems Danny Flowers played guitar in Don Williams' band, and might well have switched off on mandolin now and then - like here.

    Here's an article that goes into a bit of history on the song, and...

    Re: Incredibly bizarre old banjo-mandolin

    Yes missing a gear. A lot of older tuners pulled away from the gear, but turned in the correct direction. It would be called worm over, or worm under.

    Nice oval hole sound on that mandolin. Don's music was always a bit of sanity in a crazy world.

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    Here is a mandolin I purchased on eBay a few weeks ago. It seems to be a bit of a fixer upper, didnít cost much and I think will make a nice beginners/camp fire instrument.

    I, too, have enjoyed Don Williams' sound and style most of my life. And, I never get tired of hearing this particular song - especially with mandolin accompaniment.

    Ah yes, "The Gentle Giant." Not sure if he's one of the all-time greats, but just about every single was a good song, well-done. His music's easygoing style was so pleasant to hear, yet may have...

    Steve Earle has done a few Beatles covers, especially "I'm Looking Through You" on "Train a-Comin"

    Here's a live festival version with (looks like to me) Tim O'Brien on mando.
