Very cool! #Congrats on obtaining that piece of musical history. #
I sent pictures to Dan Beimborn a while back of a 1926 Snakehead my cousin stumbled on. #Turns out this 80-year old woman wanted mandolin lessons from him. #She'd been given a mandolin by her father, who bought it from the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo in 1926. #She played it for about a year as a little girl, then lost interest - until just recently. #It wound up in an attic for all these years and she found it several months back and brought it with her to one of her lessons. #My cousin's jaw about hit the floor when she opened up the case! #I'll have to skinny down the pics of it and post them one of these days.
Anyway, congrats again on that mint mandolin! #
