    6 Loars, 1 Fern. Cliff Sergent took this photo in the late 80's. I was busy holding a mandolin.

    Wow, that old LPOTD page is entrancing. Probably a really bad thing that I looked at that page cause now I have serious scroll envy...

    I think the one at Gruhn is already documented..

    Here's a fun chart, this is a list of Loar-signed instruments by signature date. This is generated from the archive database.. a good way to make sure that my and Darryl's lists are kept in sync!

    Dan,

    That's VERY kewl! I also have wondered about a similar chart showing the progression of cost from beginning to current. Have I missed one somewhere?

    Well I've never created a ticker or cost trend chart. I expect those must exist internally at some of the dealers though.

    Has anyone ever tried to look behind the reason why the dating of the labels were so unevenly spread. Did Lloyd Loar sign the labels as he saw it fit, did he sign the labels everytime a mandolin was completed, did he sign them on apointed dates? What´s the story. It seems to me that the production proces seems somewhat haphazzard. I am informed that it was in later years and that Gibson always experimented a good deal. Does anyone have any insight?

    Here's my version of that picture. In this one you can appreciate the tall trees. It was at the Grass Valley festival around 1990 or so. I'm on the far right.

    You remember the "Million Dolllar Band" from the HeeHaw show? This looks like the "Million Dollar Mandolin band".
    Is that Butch Waller's July 9th Loar? Sure looks minty in that photo as compared to how it looks today.

    Here are some pictures of the new out-of the closet Loar. #This is the way it was brought to me last night. It was wrapped in a clean towel though.
