http://www.earnestbanjo.com/ good resource for info. Price as I learned... is hard to pin down

Interesting site but I don't see any mandolins on it.

A few weeks ago there was one listed on eBay for a BIN price of $500, and as far as I know there was no taker. And that one was supposedly owned by Mike Compton at one point.

Personally I think they are worth that much for a good one. But with prices of old Gibson A coming down these days (A40s and A50s going for as little as $500 on eBay), there may not be much demand for it at the moment.
