    Re: Stradolin or copy?

    Re: B & J Serenader Resonator Mandolin 1930s

    I kept looking at it and I knew the first name was right but something was just not getting there for me on the second name so I looked it up. I couldn't remember the second name either.

    It's a faux resonator, the bridge isn't right either. B&J was a brand name, they didn't build that.

    There's no end pin on that mandolin. It can be attached to the slot on the Waverly tailpiece.

    There are serious issues (binding rot comes to mind) that can affect those instruments. You really need pictures if your serious about a price.
