View Full Version : speed holes
they're speed holes. they make the mandolin go faster... i guess...
When you spill your beer in the soundhole, it drains right out!
That seller is from West Virginia where I used to live. I've seen that sort of mandolin before. Those are grommets - you attach the bungee cords to it to keep it from bouncing around in the bed of the pickup. Don't you folks know nothing?!
reminds me of the resonator one that was in the classified ,except for the lack of the resonator .. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif
A rotary dial on a mandolin? 'Operator, Gimme MOnroe 2451'

A friend took me down into his basement to show me the two F-Style mandolins his father made and left to him. They were really beautiful, and I couldn't wait to play them. Then I turned one over and there was a round circle coming out of the back almost the entire size of the instrument. All had been carved away but the round circle so that the instrument's back was very thin and the circle was very thick. I asked him what this was for, but he had no answer -- being a guitar player. Is this also some design anomolie, or a speed bump?http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif
Those gromets look like the rivets in a leather jacket or an old pair of blue jeans. Mebey this mando is a Transformer. Was meant to be played, then worn.
