    Re: 1913 A1 thoughts

    I found my first mandolin, a 1917 Gibson "pumpkin top" A-1, in the attic of the house where my grandfather and great-aunt lived in Pike NY. We were clearing the house out to put it on the market; he...

    Re: Buying on the rebound and gambling

    Well, using the term "squander" is judging, at least a bit. Unless there's some actual improvement -- as estimated by an unbiased observer -- I think spending for the sake of spending, just because...

    It's been happening to me for years. I think it's a fairly normal occurrence. :cool:

    1779 Johannes Vinaccia Mandolone

    I especially like the music sheets attached to the back of the bowl. I wonder what piece that is. Mght have to try playing what I can see of it.
  11. Re: Looking for some info about a Maurer mandolin

    Fair play to you. Nice mandolin.
    I have a reputation around here as being a "doubting Thomas" in regards to the knee-jerk Larson Brothers attributions to certain label mandolins, Mauer among them....

    I got this one, and it arrived today, all in good shape. Heavy playing wear, but solid condition and no real damage.

    Re: Bruno bowlback mandola

    Looks pretty much like my Washburn mandola, except for the headstock shape. Lark Street Music has or had a very similar one labeled "Ditson." I'd hazard a guess of Chicago-built for distributors...

    Re: Bruno bowlback mandola

    Thanks, Scot.
    I actually have one of these. I like the "Bluto-beard" scratchplate on these Brunos.

    It is big.
    Price isn't so bad.
