Good morning everyone.
I'm looking for info on an old mando a friend has. His father got it in 1937 in exchange for work cleaning out an elderly gentleman's home. The mando is an A style with a very deep back.
There is a label inside the body that reads:
C W Lennox, Maker
28 Woodbine Street
1891 (the '1' appears to have be handwritten)
All of the seams are intact, two of the tuning peg handles are missing and there is a piece of inlay missing from the head. It looks to be in pretty decent condition for a 114 yr old instrument.
Any info on this mando would be greatly appreciated. I can find one site that lists C W Lennox as an "American Fretted Musical Instrument Makers" ca. 1895.
I have pictures available if anyone wants to see them.
Thanks and keep on picking - Be Well,
