    Re: '17 A-1 Bridge

    You could sand down the top of the original bridge and reslot it to lower the action. I have a CA bridge on my 20 A model which I'm happy with.

    Re: 1933 Gibson A50 with an Oval Soundhole

    Looks like a nice maple back on this one. Considering how hard it was to sell a mandolin during this time I think Gibson used nice woods on a lot of instruments. My '32 A0 has a quilted maple back...
