  1. Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Though it's not a mandolin, this 1980 Gibson Byrdland GUITAR w/ F5 Mandolin Headstock on ebay for $11,499.99 seems a little bit overpriced
  2. Vega Cylinder Back, clean, NO RESERVE on eBay

    Nice one https://ebay.us/Ki1Drn

    Not quite a vintage Gibson A5 but much better than most (certainly not all) 1970's Gibson F5's

    If you don't have $7,000 to $10,000 for a good Gibson F5, This really is the holy grail of bluegrass...

    Yeah, Yeah but unlike that car this SOL doesn't need a restoration, she plays like a dream & isn't taking up any room. So she's in the rotation of instruments I play. I also have a fairly good idea...

    Re: poor quality or MAS?

    As Allen says, most were budget mandolins, but some had hand carved tops, those are my
    Strad-O-Varius and I've gotten good at picking them out. They are few and far between.
