    Re: 1919 gibson a3 #mandolin

    Hey Eric the hex nuts would be for the early aluminum saddle that was on these truss rod model Gibson's! Very sweet indeed. This one just doesn't look right to me for some reason! Will

    Re: Recording King by Gibson

    Hey Buddy, I checked and mine are not like that one at all in the photo's? The ones I have were used on the wide bell shaped A-1's and A-50's of the late 30's-they are longer base? Sorry but I gave...
