Are there any good pics of a Loar period pic guard attachment system? I'm interested in the neck portion along the side of the Florida. Does it have the two pins that one finds in the other mandolins? Thanks,

For the benefit of us non Amaricans, can someone explain what a ' Florida ' is on a mandolin ?

The area of the fingerboard that narrows down to the width of two pairs of strings in the highest register of the board. It is called this because it resembles the panhandle of Florida.

i subjected both my "floridas" to a vigorous wearing away with a wood-rasp and file - something i'm sure (on a bi-partisan, political basis) none of us would welcome in real life

Two 3/32 pins, dead center between the frets

Not to be a stickler for details but, it resembles the penninsula, not the panhandle (where Tallahasee, Panama City and Pennsicola are located).

Does that mean that anything further south is not worth much?!?!? :grin:
