I purchased a mandolin made by John Hutto this past weekend.
Purchase was made on Sunday - came to this site to see if I could find out more about it and imagine my surprise to find that this gentleman had passed away Saturday.
Does anyone know the history of Hutto mandolins?
What I am told is that he used to live in Salem,Va. and at one point some of his mandolins (mine being one) carried the Gibson name on the mast.
Any information would be greatly appreciated as well as a tribute to fine builder.
