    That is the mandolin I saw. Henry called it a Gilchrist I believe Henry passed around 95 or 96 This was only a few years earlier

    I also waited about that long for my first Nugget F5. He had quite a backlog of orders, and by the time mine was done, used ones were selling for more than four times the price I paid for it. From what I understand now He doesn’t take orders, he builds them and offers them for sale. By the way mine was well worth the wait.

    Just reviewed this thread. "The World's Cheapest Gilchrist" hasn't seen the light of day since I took it out to photograph it. I just don't play it at all. It's on my shelf as a novelty and perhaps an investment. I'd rather see it getting played and appreciated.

    Other instruments: way too many, and yet, not nearly enough.
