    Default Old Flatiron catalog scan

    Discussion in another thread got me to scan this old catalog. Price list is 1980, and guessing the catalog is from the same time.

    I got a chuckle out of your calling a 1980 catalog "old!" I think I have socks older than that.......

    I remember when the late Fred Thompson was running for senate and someone called his second wife a "trophy wife" -- she, responded by saying something to the effect of "I'm 46, so I'll take that as a compliment!" Gotta love Tennessee.....

    Hey Eric, could you add these to the Mandolin Ad Social Group?
    "Bargain instruments are no bargains if you can't play them". These are the words of J. Garber.

    Thanks for that.

    I hope this isn't out of order or breaching any rules, I made those images into a single pdf file, available for online viewing or download:
