View Full Version : Did anyone here get this one?
This A4 snakehead (http://cgi.ebay.com/Gibson-A4-snakehead-mandolin_W0QQitemZ190270982039QQihZ009QQcategoryZ1 0179QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)came up late last night. I was tempted, but the finish was kind of scary looking. It didn't last long, I guess I'm getting too fussy about these things. Did anyone here grab it?
Good heavens. Maybe it's just as well that I went to bed somewhat early. I would've been sorely tempted at that price, even with the fugly finish.
I'm not a finish expert, but that does look like varnish-crazing as opposed to lacquer-cracking, i.e., I don't see evidence that it was refinished.
wow, that's rather "distressed"...the funny part is that the finish is not even mentioned in the description
Now there's a distressed Gibson!
So what was the "buy it now" price anyway, guys?
Oops, nevermind, I went and looked (it didn't open when I first tried it).
