The photo was borrowed from Gruhn guitars. A brilliant display of rare perception...

I applaud the maker's attempt at doing something different.. however, looking at the back of this thing, I got the distinct impression that it might cause Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. *wry grin*

This has already been covered.

True, but if you really think about it, almost everything on the board has already been covered at one time or another. BTW, that is not a complaint or a jab, just an observation. A little repetition doesn't bother me at all. But you could make that comment about 90% of threads on the board. I think it would be fun to do a whole thread on people's suggestions of topics we think that have been overdone!

I own an F-body Owsley made by the same man...and it has an odd size, it's bigger than the norm, almost a mandola with a Mandolin scale, I am working out a deal to get the 4 point from Gruhn and that way my Owsley will have a buddy, I'll keep you posted, dy.

Almost bought it when I was there too, as I'm friends with a builder named Stephen Owsley Smith. Oh well, It was overpriced at free http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

I have to say, in the nicest way possible, that I don't really like the 4 point. It doesn't flow very well and just looks wierd. Just MHO.

it looks like it was inspired by a bug splat.

She's mine...it is number 6 made in 1965, and I have his number 41 made in 1980. Gruhn did me a great job in terms of service and qickness, it is a world class shop as we all know. Any other Owsley's out there?
