    Here's two links to Tim O'B playing what I think is his Nugget:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzWoagZ53_Q
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhyhmBqRts8

    Sounds way different (better) to me...but while its got the wear spot, the headstock doesn't say Nugget, so ????

    Cheers

    Yup, that one is Tim's original Nugget.

    Here's a video from a '79 Hot Rize show where you can see Tim's original Nugget pretty clearly.



    The sound on that particular track is messed up, but the other videos from that concert (which don't show the Nugget as well) sound better and show what an amazing band they were in those early days. Nice to see Charles, too.

    Pretty sure the one Tim is playing in the top post is not the "original."

    Yup, agree. I wasn't too clear, but my previous post was referring to the mandolin Tim's playing in the links in the post immediately prior, not to the top post.
