    Default Chris's mandolin headstock 3/28/23?

    Wow! Madison Cunningham, Jacob Collier and Chris Thile. I sure hope that recordings of this performance from Tuesday in NYC become available.

    It appears that Chris's mandolin is missing the larger scroll on the headstock. I hadn't noticed this before. Did this happen recently?

    He gouged it off with a pocketknife.

    I'm guessing that is his Dude which did have a broken scroll.

    IIRC, he had broken the scroll on both Dudes (#5 and #14), but I thought had also gotten both of them repaired.

    Broken headstock scroll is on one of the Gibsons.
