    Those DA mandolins have some of the best tone ever... especially those 2-point models. I played one at Mando Bros years ago that was one of the best mandolins, hell... instruments, that I ever played. Of course JR knows something about pulling tone...

    Some years back, Gruhn had a 2 point oval hole D'Angelico that was a truly wonderful instrument.
    Sometimes I wish I had brought that one home, but I had taken the pledge.

    For sure awesome tone! I often why with these stellar old D'A's, that I've never seen one with a long neck-scale! I may be wrong, but I can't remember seeing one ever. I guess for his market at the time and what music those were aimed for players to play perhaps? Still neat!

    That one has the Dave Appolon fret removed (probably should be the Dave Appolon non-fret)

    I think John D'Angelico made whatever you wanted. Check out the rifle mandolin from the Met Museum Guitar Heroes show on another thread. There was a lovely woman who played in the NY Mandolin Orchestra who had a D'A mandolin that her mother ordered from John directly. I imagine that most of the players of mandolins back in New York City in those days played primarily classical, Italian or other folk styles and preferred the shorter scales and necks.

    Nope, not me. I hope it went to someone who will play it.
