Hi Folks. I just posted this in the "Info about mandolins" section of the message board, but I thought I'd put it up here as well, to take advantage of the local expertise.
I just made a trade for a Washburn model 215 bowlback mandolin. Can anyone tell me when these were made and where they fit into the Washburn line? It seems that several years ago, I read an article in a music magazine about the history of Washburn bowlbacks. The guy who wrote it had over 50 of them, and the first picture was of him with all of his Washburns. Does that ring a bell with anyone?
