    Mike .... that was an interesting link. I should have read it earlier. Now that I think about it I owned two Monroe F-5's, one signed by Steve Carlson and one by Bruce Weber.

    Mike .... I went back and read just about all of the posts on the thread you linked. Excellent information. One thing that I may have missed is who signed mandolins from 1924 to 1970 .......... seems like a long gap without any information of who signed. I guess the labels still had a place for a signature although I have not paid attention to who signed instruments made during that period when I have held them in my hands.

    This thread is a little different from the earlier linked thread, as I think the other one covers all those who signed it pretty well and no need to rehash it. I was just more interested in the ramifications in todays world of signing something that signifies a person is an acoustic engineer when indeed they are probably n craftsman or in a supervisory position. In the case of Lloyd Loar, he could have been both. I don't know about the others who have signed since then.

    I believe the answer is nobody as they used a different label. I'm sure one of the Gibson experts will chime in if I'm wrong.
