I recently acquired an Oscar Schmidt bowlback. In my quest for information, I conducted an extensive Google search, and got ... nothing! #Well, actually I did find one Oscar Schmidt, but it was a 12 string, listed at MockingBird Music for $1500. I also searched here and found only a 12 string. Why is there such a dearth of info?
I took a few pictures. Here is the front and back., the back of the headstock showing the tuners (there is a "3" stamped into the wood), a view of the side, and one showing the case. Here is a closeup of the top.
Can anyone provide any information about this mandolin? Is it a good one? Is it worth anything close to what they are asking at MockingBird Music?
