No financial interest here of course but Roland's 68 Randy Wood is for sale at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville. Great pictures of a mandolin that has seen quite a bit of action.

www.gruhn.com under inventory, mandolins.

Hmm, that was the ebay item some time ago.

'very extensively used' is maybe still a bit too kind considering how that looks. Given that comparison, I'm 'virtually new.' Ok, I'm 'gently used' at best.

You shouldnt judge a book by its covers, and as bill monroe said as he scraped the brand new factory finish off his loar "maybe now no one will want to steal it!"

["maybe now no one will want to steal it!"]

But the question at hand is "Will anyone buy it?"

For the asking price of Roland's mando there's a lot of other fine mandos available for well-heeled players.

Does its collectable and historical value warrant its price? Only the marketplace will tell..... http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mandosmiley.gif

I must be blind; I'm not seeing it on the Gruhn's site under Mandolin Inventory....

Since this was originally posted on April 14 I would think that there is a chance that this mandolin is no longer available.

Ah, you must be right. It's not on there any longer, so I guess so much for the "but will it sell" line of thinking....
