    Re: Lyra and Vega vintage mandolins

    I like the Vega mandolin. Looks like a 201 model (this is mine).

    It looks like the original cloud tailpiece is missing?

    Mike's estimate for the Vega sounds right depending on condition.

  12. Re: Identification of Gibson Mandolin-Guitar

    That really does not look like a Gibson. Closer to a Harmony.

    Also what is a mandolin-guitar?

    Re: Gibson

    I would vote for three bursts R9, R8, and R0, then Goldtop, black Custom, and P-90 junior. Skip the LP studios for a few years...must be thousands of them out there for sale on the used market.
