    Re: Red Allen and Frank Wakefield

    Seeing the old posts revived always makes me smile. There's so much history on the Cafe, both in terms of the topics discussed and the people posting whose name we don't see anymore.

    Re: Minty Early 70s F-12 on Ebay (NFI)

    That's an interesting Fleur de Lis on the headstock. Was that the design used on all F12s? Was it only on F12s?

    Re: Michigan and Mandolins

    Michigan also has Mike Kemnitzer (Nugget).

    I worked in Dearborn for a number of years and I drove over to Elderly for lessons. It was a long drive but it provided a great excuse to go to Elderly.
