Thread: Mandolins on the cover of Fisherman's Blues?

  1. #1

    Default Mandolins on the cover of Fisherman's Blues?

    There are two mandolins on the cover of the Waterboys' album Fisherman's Blues. One is pretty obviously a Flatiron pancake (maybe a 2M?), but the other one is harder to identify, as it has f-holes but they don't look like the f-holes on the Flatiron pancake model I can find a photo of (though everything else, including the 'sunburst' finish, looks like a Flatiron). Is it a Flatiron or is it something else? (You will probably need to find a better image of the album cover, this is the best I can do right now)

    Did they maybe make some with more traditionally shaped f-holes?

    Here's a better photo. Wow the bridge is in a really strange position too.
