    Re: Loar-period A-Jrs.

    Thanks, Martin! The serial number/FON contrast is a bit bewildering...wish they were easier to read. I had not seen the Jrs. brochure! Way cool!

    I have owned a Gibson mandolin ('37 F-12 completely converted by Randy Wood to Loar specs. in '67) since '69. I bought it, in part, because it had a narrow neck (1" at the nut; flat).
