    Nice pickin! Snakeheads rock! Is that an A4? Do you use medium strings on it? I know,it's a well-discussed subject. Just curious.


    Thank you for the inspiration.

    I believe it's a very rare Blonde A4. I found this which is 1 serial no away from mine. Exact copy and guessing they were on the bench at the same time in 1924-25. Been using 74s but recent thread had me wonder if too heavy and trying LaBella guaged just a bit lighter. I dunno. http://www.mandolinarchive.com/gibson/serial/81100 Tone is amazing and cell phone audio doesn't do it justice.

    Thanks mmuller,I have used 74s,or similar, on my snakehead and even a teens F4 for a long time. Not saying
    it's best for longevity;but,lighter strings just don't seem to let the instruments breathe like I know they
    can.
    May the mando gods forgive me.

    Your snakehed sounds so nice.
