    Hi all!
    I've been off this website for a while, but some of you might know I am working at a comprehensive (can't say "complete" in this type things, really ;) ) discography of small-label Blue...

    Case for Venetian-style Kay

    Hi folks!
    I recently bought a Venetian style Kay-made mandolin with its original case, very trashed. I am wondering which modern case maker (if any) has something that'll fit this properly.

    Very good conditions, a bit of playwear (nothing dramatic), original tuners, original period-correct case, no top sinkage, no cracks.
    Non-original bridge. Missing pickguard.

    Yeah that's certainly right houseworker. So what would you guys say is the current US market value for one similar mandolin?

    Re: Allegedly 1924 non-snakehead Gibson A-2?

    Yes, that's the way I understood it too.
    How would this make sense? Does it mean it was ordered in 1922 and built over the course of two years? Would this, commonly speaking, make it a 1922 A-2?...

    Yes, right! Actually, there's video evidence of Curly playing a short turnaround solo on that song, which is a bit different, but Herschel sure had studied that style!

    Yup, big fan here, both his voice and his mandolin playing.
    I think the reason behind him not playing too many lead breaks is that the FMB wanted to make their sound as different to Monroe's as...
