Re: Vintage F4 Anomalies
I'm just thinking, I have an almost identical F4 (the Jeanette Greene mandolin in the post above) and I wonder if a left handed player would have found it easier to play with the cut out at the sound hole. Maybe that's why the mod was done that way?
I have a dark theory about the tuners. That is definitely a 1915/1913 mandolin, and it would have the Handels. I'm thinking someone along the line swapped them when it changed hands in the past.
Note also that the label was filled in by the same person who signed Jeanette Greene's.
How does it sound? I've played a lot of F4s at Gryphon but I don't remember playing that one.
Ha, ha! keep time: how sour sweet music is,
When time is broke and no proportion kept!
