    I haven't gotten around to doing my carved top ones yet, but here are my bowlbacks.

    L to R, top row: Harwood, Vega Style 3, Martin Style 6, Pandini, L. Ricca, Washburn 225, Stridente;
    Bottom row: C. Biggio, No Name "Boatback", Grauso, American Conservatory mandola, Waldo, No Name Pearl bordered.

    [I already posted on the bowlback thread but I suppose it bears repetition]

    Here's what my couch looks like some days.
    There's my #20 "A", Steven Stone's Wiens, Drew's #30 Hilburn, and A Gilchrist that Steven had on loan.

    If anyone ever see's Ome #2 that has flower inlay's like the Nugget that Dan posted, what you really have is one of the earliest Nuggets, and was the prototype for Tim O'Brien's. I bet it's still here in Colorado.
    One of the great mistakes of my life to sell it because I figured I could just build my own.

    SternArt: It's a very fine mandolin. Has some of the 'thoonk' like his oval-holed ones do (like the acme in the classifieds!) and quite a fair bit of bluegrass growl too. It's firmly between the genres in tone. VERY loud, and perhaps the nicest most even sounding E string on a mando I've yet played. Chip's a lucky Guy. I took another pile of pictures of it that I'll sort out and post soon.. along with tons of other ones of Steve's stuff!

    Sorry these arent all mandos, but it took me many years, and instruments, to finally see the light. Bass by Peavey, Guitar by Seagull, Violin by Juzek, MANDO by COLLINGS (my fav.), Banjolin by someone in Istambul, Turkey???, and a harp and dulcimer thrown in for good measure. Lets see.... thats... um..... 55 strings by my count.....

    Excellent! A nice pair of Gibsons and they look quite comfortable on your couch. I will try to take some pics of my non-bowlbacks. I am getting a reputation on this board as being only into bowlbacks. Not that there is anything wrong with that...
