    Re: Recommendation for an electric?

    Or a pet ferret.

    Eastwood also has some standard mandolins, such as the Mandocaster and the Ricky. I don't know whether you prefer 4 strings or 8.
    The Godin is great but may be too loud. There...

    Re: Some Questions on New Purchase

    Nice. I have a 19" acoustic octave mandolin and actually use heavier gauges for GDAE ... but if this set works on an electric, I don't think it's a problem.

    Re: EM-150 CL. Pretty fair deal. NFI.

    Closeups of the end of the fretboard, particularly the one shot from the treble side, show high action.

    Funky logo placement on F4 headstock.

    eBay is selling a postcard with this image of mandolinist Violet Pearl and her teens-ish F4.

    What puzzles me is the headstock; "The Gibson" is as far away from the edge as I've ever seen it, and...

    True. This is from several years ago. I don't know anyone who has one and am not sure how many were actually produced.

    Re: 1909 A4 Gibson Factory Revamped

    Hard to say. There's a little spot of some kind of gunk on the treble side of the soundhole, which could indicate that this was kept in the case for a long time and the pickguard outgassed and fell...

    Not seeing anything in the photos that screams "refinish." The colors are correct for an A4 of this vintage.

    Re: 1909 A4 Gibson Factory Revamped

    Not necessarily a refinish -- there are plenty of blackface A4s from this period. In fact I don't think the sunburst A4 was introduced until 1914. It's nice that the Handels were reused. The...
