i think that the few pomeroys that ive seen are some of the nicest looking mandolins (and sounding, but ive never heard one) on this site. if anyone has pictures, that would be cool for some eye candy. i especially like don's f-4's and the finishes hes got going.

Here's mine, #47.

Here is my Pomeroy A2, Don is about to start an F4 for me!

Here is the A2 backside.

I have nice pics of #44 but don't know how to downsize them without Photoshop. I think these A5 #26 will post.

And the back.
(Is it bad etiquette to post a pic of #43 even if it's not my mandolin?)

Poor Kalimba is jealous of #49. It gets too much attention for her taste. She jumped on the couch to make sure she could get into the pix...

Don's finishes have a rich organic quality that really lets the character of the wood show through. This photo doesn't do justice.

And the headstock:

Well, I think I've posted this one before but it looks like there's an appetite to see some of Don's oval hole mandos. Here's my #27, his first F4, reclining in my Big Red Chair...

ahhh, that is tasty

Those are all amazing. Would love to see/hear that #27...

CHPorter, Your #27 Pomeroy is truly beautiful. Does your F4 have a 1 piece back or a 2 piece? Any chance you could upload a glimpse of the back and sides? How long have you had your mandolin now? How do you like playing it now that you have had it for some time? Thanks for your response.

Sorry, I can't seem to find a pic of the back, though I'm pretty sure there's one around here somewhere -- I'll post one in the next day or so. It's a two-piece back with some nice figure on it.

The sustain and woody sound on this F4 are my favorite aspects of its sound. Maybe not the bluegrasser's dream, but I really love it for what I do -- folk stuff, some fiddle tunes, some Simon Mayor (Brit mando-god.) I'd buy another Pomeroy F4 in a heartbeat. I think mine's about 2 years old in a month or so. I'm in Michigan; you're welcome to try 'er out if you're nearby.

Thanks CHPorter,
Liked everything you had to say, and I love the look of your Pmeroy. Any chance you could let known your email address so we could possibly chat more on the F4's?

Ahhhhh, very nice. Could any Pomeroy owners let me know how it stacks up to a Gibson A oval?

And Thanks and a hat tip to Richard.

Just saw this and thought I'd give my 2 cents.

I used to own a 1916 Gibson "A". I just received a Pomeroy F-4. I sold the Gibby to help finance the Pomeroy.

TOTALLY different beasts. IMHO, the Pomeroy is superior in every sense. Don't get me wrong, the Gibson is a great instrument, but my taste is more towards the Pomeroy.

Again, all taste is subjective,but given the choice of which
to go with, I'd take the Pomeroy.

Well, in a few months I'll be able to do my own comparison. #HoooHa!

#87. I think I am the third owner. It will need some new frets one day soon.

Really, his finishes are incredible, some of the nicest around.
