    I wonder how many were made? Not many, I’d bet. When Hans posted pictures of the first one, I found his number in Mpls, called him up and congratulated him. I was stunned. Still am.

    I seem to remember that Trevor at TAMCO had one (if not more) in stock several years ago but I never got to play one.

    I played one years ago at Acoustic Music in CT. I counted (I think) 6 made in the registry: https://brentrupmandolinregistry.wor...&submit=Search

    Does anyone remember what he called that model? Actually his web site is still up and he called it a V8.

    Itís the same one, Jim. Someone changed the tuners, but I think he only made handful of those.

    That was originally mine.

    Hans built some amazing looking and sounding mandos. Love my 23V with an Italian top.

    Looking at the website Jim posted, I didn't realize Hans built Griffith Loar copies. I wonder how many of them are out there. Would love to play one of those.

    I remember Gail taking one of hers (mine) to see his.

    I believe there was one true Griffin copy. He did however build some larger-bodied A5 style mandolins.
    Sorry, I am no longer suffering fools
