    Help with identifying this mandolin

    Don't know much about it, besides my mother in law purchasing it at a antique shop. She paid roughly $200. Any info that I can pass along to get would be great. It's got a great tone. Thanks

    Re: Right hand thumb position

    No, thank you both for the suggestion. I do have a strap, since I've first picked up one. Just seems that my thumb on my right hand, fretting hand, seems to be glued sometimes to the neck.

    Re: $199.00 solid F style mandolin
