    A mystery mandolin on Craigslist

    This Craigslist bowlback has the most amazing back. The pictures make it look as if it was carved or molded -- not by assembling staves.

    Also, the tuners are odd -- and oddly placed.

    Re: Nugget Tailpiece on Flat-Top

    Cool. I had my own Franken-mandolin years ago -- basically an eight-string laboratory. I think that's a great way to learn. Good luck with it!

    What kind of bridge is that -- a Red Henry? Something else? What's the saddle made of?

    Re: Name This 30s Mandolin!

    The body shape reminds me of an old Bacon Professional. But that's where the similarity ends.

    Bacon Professionals have a different headstock, different tailpiece, smaller sound hole and a...

    I got to that link through Sweetwater Music's page, so it appears you are right -- sorry. I'd never pay $200 for a CD, either.

    Sweetwater Music appears to have the group's first CD for sale:

    You could ask the San Diego Mandolin Orchestra. I'm sure their members are connected to plenty of mandolin teachers:

    Maybe you can get Pink Pearl erasers through mail order? Maybe even at a decent price? Good luck with it.

    Re: Boomerang Banjo Mandolin

    Amazing info. Your research is something like mando-forensics or some kind of eight-string archaeology. Thank you for your work.

    Re: Blue Chip pick for oval hole mandolin

    I most often play a 1914 Gibson A, a vintage oval-hole mando.

    I like to use a Blue Chip TP40. You might want to give them a try.
