    True. This is from several years ago. I don't know anyone who has one and am not sure how many were actually produced.

    Re: 1909 A4 Gibson Factory Revamped

    Hard to say. There's a little spot of some kind of gunk on the treble side of the soundhole, which could indicate that this was kept in the case for a long time and the pickguard outgassed and fell...

    Re: 1909 A4 Gibson Factory Revamped

    Not seeing anything in the photos that screams "refinish." The colors are correct for an A4 of this vintage.

    Re: Favorite Electric Mandolin Albums or Artists?

    I should give a shout out to an album I recently discovered: Paul Buskirk's HOT PICKIN' (1975). When I posted about it in April, the entire album was on YouTube, but alas, that is no longer the...

    Good eye — yes, on the treble side of the headstock, between the second and third tuners, looks like someone had to fill a screw hole.

    I've asked this seller about that ... he lists all instruments that way to prevent people from returning items with a Substantially Not As Described claim.

    Re: 1909 A4 Gibson Factory Revamped

    Not necessarily a refinish -- there are plenty of blackface A4s from this period. In fact I don't think the sunburst A4 was introduced until 1914. It's nice that the Handels were reused. The...

    Re: Need advice on selling Flatiron mandolin

    Post some photos here. I'd guess it is currently worth 500 to 700 dollars; even lower-end pancake-style Flatirons are doing fairly well in the vintage market.

    Re: Found this Bohmann mandolin

    Very expensive repair. If you want to learn mandolin, this is probably not the instrument to learn on.

    I doubt anyone's ever cracked a mandolin merely by overtightening a string. The string would...
