    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...

    Re: Gibson F5 custom 1966 help advice

    I think that all the F5's from this period had "Custom" engraved on the truss rod cover.

    Not a mandolin, and not exactly a Christmas present, but I took delivery of a telecaster style guitar that's been in the works for over two years. The body is made out of a 1951 Fender steel guitar...

    Re: '17 A-1 Bridge

    I had a CA bridge fitted to my 1919 A2, and ended up putting the original back on. The mandolin just lost some of that overtone-y goodness that I like so much about it. It's nice to have the CA...

    Re: Case for Gibson Oval

    I have a generic tweed F5 case that my 1919 fits in just fine. The extra space for the scroll is a nice place to put a strap, tuner, etc.

  17. Re: VERY CLEAN GIBSON MANDOLIN A50 1942-1949 Flame back Boring si

    It's really an A-1, not an A-50. A blonde mandolin like this sold on Ebay last week that had highly flamed sides, and a plain back. Maybe they got switched in production.

    Re: Help identifying this Gibson Mandolin

    Definitely an A-1 from that period. Aside from the logo(No A-40s had the pre '47 script logo) it also has a maple back, which no A-40 had.
