    Re: Will Kimble mandolins are....

    I’ve had F5 #153 for 4 years now. It’s the perfect adi-topped foil to my Englemann Heiden. Aside from a vintage Fern or Loar, I don’t lust after ff hole mandolins much these days.

    Can’t believe there aren’t anymore videos of these yet. Seems the retail stores don’t care much about selling them. Looks like I’ll finally be in the same city as one before the end of the year. Will...

    Nice playing. Enjoy!
  14. Re: Was the mandolin played in traditional folk before Bill Monro
