View Full Version : Played my first Loar

I got the opportunity this weekend to hold, smell and play Alan Bibey's July 9, 1923 Loar mandolin. It's not as boldly loud as my 2003 Fern, but very even and sweet sounding from top to bottom. Alan has the action low and was a joy to play. And when he played it on stage.....need I say more. He played my Fern and I'm hoping he left something on it. Thanks again, Alan!
