    Default John Abercrombie's e-mandos were auctioned off last November...

    ...and we all missed it, evidently. Many of Abercrombie's instruments were sold by Skinner last November, including his Schwab Standard and 1974 Fender Mandocaster.

    And ... they both went for very reasonable prices. I've sold similar instruments that did not belong to John Abercrombie for higher prices than these. Sorry I missed this auction. I wonder where the mandolins went?

    Hi,

    Someone got a bargain. I’ve been looking for a Schwab 4 string for a few years and not been able to find one. Placed 4-5 ads in the wanted section and never had a single reply.

    Oh well, everything comes to he who waits.

    Regards,

    I am really bummed I missed this. I would have bid on either or both. Abercrombie was an interesting Jazz Guitar player who experimented on Electric Mandolin. I would have loved to have one of his Mandolins in my collection.

    A few weeks back a Cafe member sold one for $1200.

    Yes. I did see that one and one in Carter’s a while back, but they would not ship to the UK.

    Yeah, the 4-string Schwab and Mandocaster in that photo may be the ones that were auctioned off. I don't know what might have happened to the 8-string Schwab.
