  1. Upside down "Whale" inlay on headstock - Where from?

    In the past few months I've noticed this design on a few different mandolins from Gerald Anderson, Spenser Strickland, Ellis, and a 2004 Heiden for sale in the classifieds. I think it looks like a...
  2. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    Re: Gerald Anderson, Rest In Peace

  4. Re: Were non-Gibson F style mandolins around prior to the 1970s?

    Thanks, Don and Steve. Sounds like Pac Rim imports arrived in the mid'70s. What about independent American builders? When did they first arrive on the scene? I guess there was probably more of a...
  5. Were non-Gibson F style mandolins around prior to the 1970s?

    Re: RIP Col. Bruce Hampton

    The ARU was great and Matt Mundy's mandolin in this band was like all of the others in the band, pivotal to the point that if he wasn't there it wouldn't have been the same. They could play straight...

  21. Re: Collings MT - Top wood grain feature looks like a smudge?

    Thanks, Everyone. Questions answered. Maybe the satin finish brings it out more. This is the first satin finish mandolin I've owned.
  22. Collings MT - Top wood grain feature looks like a smudge?

    I recently acquired a used Collings MT. Plays and sounds great. The top has a feature in the wood that I've not seen before. The grain of the wood seems to have a circular pattern in some places. ...
