    Default Strings for a 1914 "A" Mandolin

    Well, you may have guessed, I bought the Mandolin. I needed something to play when my wrists aren't hurting. I have never had an instrument this old, seems very sturdy. Any problem with putting a normal set of strings on it, like j74s or the equivilent? I post some pics tonight. It is beautiful, and sounds beautifuler!
