    I think that the days of getting great deals on Ebay are pretty much over, especially when the auctions are posted here.

    Re: '17 A-1 Bridge

    I had a CA bridge fitted to my 1919 A2, and ended up putting the original back on. The mandolin just lost some of that overtone-y goodness that I like so much about it. It's nice to have the CA...

    Re: Case for Gibson Oval

    I have a generic tweed F5 case that my 1919 fits in just fine. The extra space for the scroll is a nice place to put a strap, tuner, etc.

  5. Re: What mandolin recordings are definitive to evolving its role?

    I think that Jethro Burns' solo on Back Up And Push was a game-changer for a lot of "swing-curious" bluegrass mandolinists.

  8. Re: VERY CLEAN GIBSON MANDOLIN A50 1942-1949 Flame back Boring si

    It's really an A-1, not an A-50. A blonde mandolin like this sold on Ebay last week that had highly flamed sides, and a plain back. Maybe they got switched in production.

    Re: Help please dating A-style Gibson

    It was not uncommon for Gibson to repaint pegheads and put a modern logo on and instrument that came in for repair. I used to have a Southern Jumbo guitar that had the original 1947 script logo...

    Re: puzzled by Gibson A at guitar show

    Gibson often added or updated a logo on the head stocks of mandolins that came in for repair/refinish. I used to have a '47 Southern Jumbo that had been back to the factory for repairs, and they...

    A-1. A-50's from that period usually have bound fret boards and pearl inlay in the peg head.

    Re: Help identifying this Gibson Mandolin

    Definitely an A-1 from that period. Aside from the logo(No A-40s had the pre '47 script logo) it also has a maple back, which no A-40 had.

    Re: Mandocaster?

    I've had a couple of 60's Fender mandolins, and tome, they weren't that great sounding. I think that most of the price difference is collector "value".
