    Ok, I’m obviously not going to do that :) It was my dad’s, but his lifelong mandolin was a Sparks F-5 that I also have. He bought the DL about 5 years...

    Who left you the Gibson? For me playing musician something that was left to me by a loved one would far outweigh my likes of the aesthetics of the instrument. I did not inherit my Heiden but it is...
