Thread: Ted Davis mandolins

    Default Ted Davis mandolins

    Has anyone had any experience with F-model mandolins built by the late Ted Davis of Loudon, TN? How do they sound, and what do they go for? Thanks for any help here.

    Ted was well thought of by the mandolin community. While you're waiting for an answer feel free to peruse this list of threads with Ted's name in it.

    Thanks, Mike. I've seen most of what's out there already. I was hoping to hear from some people who've played his instruments.
