    Re: Where did you find your last mando?

    My favorite story is about my '23 A2. I was at a client's house and the guy is one of those "gotta try everything once" types. He knew I played mandolin and mentioned he had one he bought a decade...

    Re: Modern F4 options?

    If you want high end check out the Gibson F4 Hybrid I'm selling on Reverb. One of a kind by David Harvey. It's an amazing mandolin but not for the faint of wallet!

    It sounds really nice, Dem.

    Re: Bill Halsey's last F-5

    All well and good...

    But!

    How do they sound?
    How do they play ?
    How do they compare?

    What makes them special as far as mandolins go?
  16. Re: Suggestions requested for this array of desired attributes

    Travel and find them,
    Pick 'em up,
    Play 'em
    You'll know when you hear/feel it.

    All the various Hutto mandolins I've seen here on the MC have been in the rage of $10k.
    The first one I remember seeing was in 2013 and it was listed at $9k.
