    You are not the original owner, correct? I believe that mandolin was built for a well known old time performer in western NC.

    I was shopping for my first pro-grade mandolin in the 1970s when I saw a magazine article about Wayne. At the time, he was building a dead-nuts Loar copy that even had "The Gibson" in the headstock. He stated in the article that he was getting $750 for them. Around the same time MandolinBros was marketing a Monteleone F5 copy for a little over a grand. Roger Siminoff had just instigated Gibson's F5L. I was on the west coast and ended up with a Givens, mostly because it was physically available for me to play before purchase. Don't I wish now I had got them all...?

    I'm all for enjoying musical instruments. But it's worth noting that $750 invested in the S&P in 1970 and not touched would be worth $143,250 today. Just sayin'...

    Calculator, HERE.

    Just sayin'...I could buy a desirable Loar-signed F5 with that 1970-750 bucks now?

    Funny that this old thread was revived and a Henderson F5 shows up for sale a few days later.
