Does anyone know when Gibson went to the snakehead on the A Jrs.?

Mine's a '25 so it was no later than that. #I wanna say '24 ...

The Mandolin Archive as many listed, the first one is this 1922 (http://www.mandolinarchive.com/perl/show_mando.pl?647) model, the last one is this one from 1926 (http://www.mandolinarchive.com/perl/show_mando.pl?2838). I read somewhere that is was 1923 to 1927... Guess it was not consistent even then... I'm sure Dan Beimborn will chime in with better info.

roughly '22-25.. they went back to the paddle shape in '25 for some reason on all the A models. There are quite a few from 22-25 that don't have snakeheads too, I think they'd use what was at hand in "the neck pile"
