    The Amazon view lets you look into Paul's tally of brand names and while their are many for MWs the "Ward" brand doesn't show up. I only have a "Ward" and "Recording King" KM11 style mandolin in my files. I love to see others.

    Not to presume at all the Randy's pal has a Gibson-made instrument. Lots of look-sort of-alike out there from this period.

    That's not a 1930's instrument, it's earlier. Is it marked?

    Looks like a Lyon & Healy made bowlback from early teens circa 1912 or so.
