    Re: BRW Mandolins / Ben Wilcox Magazine Article

    No. He stopped building and no longer has a business license. I called him a year or so ago for refrett and maybe exchange. He once offered me a good deal and was curious to see he would still do it.

    Re: Gibson F2 and F4 mandolins.

    Mandolin Bros used to have the nicest pumpkin f-4 I ever saw.. I think 1915. It had all the vibes in excellent condition. They really must not have wanted to sell it as it had a $14K price on it.
