    Though it's not a mandolin, this 1980 Gibson Byrdland GUITAR w/ F5 Mandolin Headstock on ebay for $11,499.99 seems a little bit overpriced

    I love the "Siminoff" on the headstock ... that's a sick burn.

    It looks kind of like a James Docy but even more hastily assembled.

    I love that this ad includes the original $886.89 sales invoice from 2010. That mandolin was quite the investment!

    Maybe it has historic value: owned by *both* Bill Monroe and J. P. Morgan.

    I think the seller just made a typo and put a comma in the wrong place. The original cost of the mandolin alone was $499.95, I think he meant $500.00 for a ten year old item. But I could be wrong.

    I had one of these, probably made by L&H, lovely inlay, but price is astronomical. About 4 or 5% of that price would be optimistic. Granted, it does look like it is in excellent condition, but still...

    Perhaps if it had been Granpa's banjo?

    On the plus side, with that break angle it's probably inaudible.
