    Doesn't look like 50's to me. More like 90's...

    If you are looking for someone to make a new neck for the instrument, a competent builder can handle the job.

    This is the kind of posting that always confuses me, the OP posts a cryptic or very fague message and then there is zero follow up or clarification. What the heck is the point?!

    Might’ve been simpler to post the link: https://reverb.com/item/37817259-gib...show_sold=true and say “Are any of you willing to fix my mandolin?”

    I was at Randy Wood’s shop yesterday and unless there are 2 of these with a James tailpiece, this was on his bench already fitted with a new neck. He got it from the new owner who bought it over the internet. He didn't say how long ago. Randy said he recarved the tops on “a few” A-50s around the same time he started recarving F model Gibsons. It’s not only a Randy Wood recarved top, with a Randy Wood neck, inside is a Randy Wood’s Pickin’ Parlor, Nashville label. I’ve never seen one of those before
