Happy Birthday Tom, and of course Happy Birthday to Big Mons Loar the Mandolin that started it all...
Never Argue with an Idiot, they will just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
I think you meant HB to #73987 which was certified on July 9, 1923 as being worthy to carry the signature of Gibson's Acoustical Engineer, Lloyd Loar. It was fate that brought together the rarest batch of signed Loar F5s and a master of the mandolin. Since that day in Florida in early 1945 the two changed what we know today as Bluegrass music.
Happy Birthday, Tom!!
In celebration of this most memorial occasion two Lloyd Loars have been listed for sale on the cafe today within minutes of each other.
And both priced for quick sale too! To share BDs with Jesse and Monroe's mandolin is something to brag about. Both men have influenced me since the day I was born.
Happy Birthday, F5. Hope you have a great day.

Happy birthday, Tom. These are great mandolins, though I personally like the April 23 better.
Have a Great Day!
Happy birthday, Tom! If anyone can be said to have been born to be a mandolin player, you have a right to that title. And owning one of those Loars is practically a birthright, and must give you just that extra bit of pride. Not to mention a ready-made story.
