    Re: Vintage Gibson oval hole

    Re: Mandolin Influences

    David, growing up in New Orleans did you ever hear the 6 & 7/8 String Band or similar string jazz music that featured mandolin? They were a big influence on me.

    CWRoyds, did you play any of the other F2s or F4s at Schoenberg? I've been admiring all the Gibsons he has on his website. They all look remarkable.
