    Why would anyone need five guitars but only one mandolin?

    Hey, if I owned those, I'd store 'em vertically rather than horizontally...

    The guitar in the center looks like about a 1945 L-50 (or maybe L-48) what is the year and model of the arch top on the far right in the photo?

    From Left to Right.
    1967 Southern jumbo
    1968 Stratocaster.
    1950 L50
    1963 6124 Gretsch
    1946 L48 I believe this was the only year for the trapizoid inlays. It does sport the small f holes like the L50
    The Mandolin is a A model 1918.

    Nice collection, something for every mood. Being particularly fond of acoustic archtops, I'll ask: does the early L-48 have a solid spruce top?

    Great selection of guitars plus the mandolin you featured the other day which looked like a really great buy.
