  3. Re: Umberto's Mandolin (Ceccherini, double top, restored)

    I'm pretty sure this particular Ceccherini is now with our group -- four of our members now have Ceccherinis, two of them restored by John and two by me. All of them great tone.

    Re: A. Alberto - Kleine Mandolinen-Schule

    Yes, indeed -- my own initial suspicion in my opening post was the same as yours and Sheri's: the material is much more German than Italian so a pseudonym for Heinrich Albert seemed likely. However,...
