Re: Flatiron Performer A
I'd like to see a front and back photo. Others would too. I think I know the character of the "Performer," but I may be a bit confused between it and the "Festival," which I think may be the lowest-trim line. Is your mandolin bound top and back? Is there any flame to the back wood? Does it have a peghead inlay in MOP? (I think they all had adjustable truss rods by then). Is there a pickguard?
Sure I could google some photos of the "Performer," but you could do us all a favor and show us yours.
I have an '87 a-model Flatiron. It's called the A5-1. The A5-2 was the fancy one. Mine does have top and back binding and "The Flatiron" inlay in MOP. I don't have an adjustable truss rod though. I love my Flatiron. A lot!
