Mandolin Cafe Events Calendar for August 20, 2014

Is it an early Gibson mandolin, or not? An ongoing forum debate on an undoubtedly rare instrument. Our opinion: it's not a Gibson, but it is cool.

An older twist on the basic design of a mandolin rarely seen: this unusual 1990 Mancuso for sale on eBay.

They still surface! 1917 Gibson H-1 'dola, in the same family since original purchase, now on the auction block at eBay. A beauty!
