Awesome interview. Thanks to Dan for all of his hard work on the Mandolin Archive; a truly unique resource. And thanks for all the work involved in hosting the Mandolin Cafe. I really like the close up photography.

Talk about your unsung hero, Dan is the man. Wife and I had the privilege of dinner with him last time I was in London. An exceptional human being.

Except for that chicken thing.

Nice interview, Scott and thanks Dan for all of your tireless contributions to our mando universe. I also appreciate the Archive and its expansion to include Gilchrist, Wiens instruments beyond Gibsons. Thanks again!

What a great read! Fascinating to learn so much about the wizard behind the curtain at the Mandolin Cafe and the Mandolin Archive. I had no idea he is American by birth, and I felt a bit of nationalist pride. We are very fortunate to have someone with his estimable talents, knowledge, insight, and dedication devoting himself to these resources.

From time to time I think of submitting my instruments to the Archive for inclusion in the collection. I doubt my plain A is worthy, though it's a good player, but hopefully my 1916 H-2 mandola is.

There was a point early on when I saw the cover of Dan's CD, with this wording on the link: "Dan Beimborn's 2006 CD, Torch and Fire, with his 1909 Gibson F4, serial number 9100 as the cover art. Click to purchase." For the briefest moment my mind fooled me into thinking I could purchase the MANDOLIN ...

Journeybear- we like to record all of the models, anything with a serial number (and hopefully a FON!) will get a listing! Again, I'm a bit behind *cough* on some submissions, but my intention is indeed to get them all in!

I think three pointers are among the most beautiful mandolins in the world, and those pictured above are stunning.

I should also have mentioned that 3640 is a wide-body. 9211 is about 1" less wide at the widest point!
