View Full Version : post a picture of an old boy with a mandolin

here's a video of jack, compiled by his son, featuring photos of some of the mandolins he owned while he was alive. i understand that he lost his gibson in the hurricane katrina flooding of new orleans: i don't know what his most recent, electric/acoustic "a" is called but it appears that at one time he had a "batwing" as well. there's also a lovely rendition of "whispering" from lena horne:

hope you find this interesting; nothing morbid is suggested in posting it - i did it solely for the mandolin content. jackson must have had a rich, full life - appears he'll be missed.
