    I found another Derrington MM for sale, http://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/msg/5252692481.html.

    I wish had the kind of funds required to do that, but I certainly do not. On an unconnected matter I am in email contact with the owner of DMM #1 and he showed me a photo. So far as I know, it is not for sale.

    Ron McMillan - That's okay, I assumed it probably wasn't! A nice piece of mando history there!

    Old Gus - I've seen that one, but got some PM response for a few other DMM's owned by cafe members that may be interested in selling. Thanks though!

    I have no funds for a DMM, MM or even a varnished Fern but oh how I so want a varnish finished f-hole Gibson of some sort. Don't tell my lacquer finished F-12.

    Whenever I see the virtues of varnish mentioned, I think of a 3-hour Catholic wedding I attended in an old NON-air conditioned church, of yeah, it was in August and must have been 100 degrees in there.....

    Well, a combination of the weather plus my body heat reactivated the varnish on the pew gluing my polyester suit to the bench....when it was time to get up, I couldn't move! No way to be graceful at that point, just had to lean into it, as my suit fabric was pulled loose from the pew....of course, it was a light gray suit, now with brown patches on the back on the coat, seat of my pants and backs on my legs. What'dya gonna do?

    NO MANDOLIN CONTENT

    I would imagine a half million dollar offer would get you any mandolin on the planet. Alas, I will never test my theory.

    There were no DMMís made in 1999. It is possible someone had it distressed later, but the model was first introduced in 2004.

I know it was for sale at Lark street music a few years ago for the sum of $25,000, but would like to know where it currently resides, and if it will ever be for sale again!

    I know, I know...wishful thinking.

    Signed by Derrington in June of 1999.
    After Charlie I was the first owner of that mandolin in fact I took those photos. I can tell you now it wasn’t signed by Charlie...
