    Do these have a "non-completed" scroll? I can't tell.

    That is without a doubt the ugliest instrument I have ever seen. I've seen a few of these "lumps" before and every time I just wonder why on earth anybody would build such a monstrosity.

    oh man the dreaded Mickey Mouse ears please make them STOP!

    There is a guy that brings a pair of those to a guitar show that I frequent, poor little things. I feel sorry for them...

    I knew Gibson made the lump model, but I never knew Epiphone did. There is binding on the back of this one, but not on the original Gibson A-12s. New model, old, proto-type.. Its a mystery to me.

    All That Glitters is not Scrolled, Dan
    Play em like you know em!

    More like a "goiter."

    But I am sure that Dale is going to chase JimW around on his posts and dare him to buy it(or "call him out" to do so)!



    If F-model mandolins have F-holes then why don't A-model mandolins have A-holes???
