    Great talk/demo CJ. I knew you'd be extremely thrilled to get that beauty! I'm happy I could help by pointing her your way. Enjoy, as I know you will. I can't wait to hear it in your band setting and maybe I'll be able to strum a chord or two on her someday. Happy Picking.

    Very cool story.

    Anyone have the link to the first 'McClanahan Mandolin Chronicles' page? (mentioned in the video)
    I can't seem to find it.

    Hey Don, thank you for asking about Mandolin Chronicles. I'm editing all of the footage on CJs mandolin now and will be uploading the full length version on YouTube real soon. You can see my work o CJs Fern though on my Facebook page. Under my name Jonathan McClanahan.

    I just looked at the video on the “Fern” at Elderly, “WOW!” If I was looking, I make a trip over there right now!

    Yes that Fern is special! it has an FON# like some of the early 1925's I think so that's an early outstanding sounding example!
