Everett Lilly's 3 Pointer
February issue of Bluegrass Unlimited landed in my mailbox yesterday afternoon. Everett Lilly is on the cover with his mandolin. Looks like an old Gibson blonde 3 point, but fretboard has modern block inlays, torch and wire inlay on headstock and no "The Gibson" inlay.
Anyone know anything about this instrument. The article has a picture of him from the mid '50s holding what seems to be the same instrument except the fretboard has dot inlays and the finger rest is in place.
