A friend of mine may give me a yellow A style mandolin. #It says Bentley in the headstock. #She knows it is at least 15 years old, but I don't have any other information. #It sounds pretty good, much louder than my Johnson F style. #The strings haven't been replaced and it sounds "twangy." #Could the twangy sound result from the old strings?
It was her Dad's instrument. #She will be moving soon and would like me to record some of the songs he used to play on it.
Has anyone seen a Bentley mandolin before? #Any information regarding who / when / where / etc. would be appreciated.
Play, play, play!
