    The modern logo does indeed come in about 1947, first in silkscreen, then changing to a decal in 1954.

    Re: The Mandolin in America

    Perhaps just another conspiracy by anti-Shmergel subversives (Gibson, Weber, Collings, Eastman et. al.) to cover up the existence of this nonpareil gem of mandolins?

    Yes you can. I tuned my old 6 string F-C-G-D-A-E. It is approximately the same scale as my two mandocello's, one of which is a 10 stringer (C-G-D-A-E). I just bought individual guitar strings the...

    I would hate for one of my mandolins to spring a leak and me without a patch. I probably ought to have several on hand "just in case."
