  8. Re: Help identifying the Gibson Mando in this YouTube performance

    It's a style A from before 1917, when they started staining them brown. An A1 would have the Gibson logo in pearl on the peghead.

    I have a 10 year old Epiphone MM-30a/e that has one brace running right down the middle of the top. It seems to be fine.

    Re: 1901 Gibson?

    They were't using truss rods until 1922, so if that is the correct FON, maybe it got re-necked at some point.

    Re: 1924 Gibson A-jr

    If the finish had been put on with the bridge in place, it would have been strung up to hold it in place, so I don't think that's what happened. I'm also unsure if a varnish finish was sprayed on in...

    I bought a used Epiphone A model with a built-in pickup and solid top off of Craigslist last year for $80. It plays and sounds fine, especially plugged, which is what I bought it for.
