Italian spruce topped F5 M23, signed in March of 2003. From online ad: “It has a replacement bridge with a pearl saddle“.
That’s the best mandolin I’ve ever heard!
I own it now. I just bought it last night. I’m definitely going to have to improve my playing to live up to what this instrument can do. I played it in the music store and was hooked. I think Shoenberg had it for awhile but I bought it from Gryphon.
I wonder who added that pearl bridge (I have the original in the case).
It’s a beauty! Congratulations!
Still playing it. It sounds better all the time. It has accumulated a few more minor dings, but nothing that you’d notice without a close look. That’s pretty good given the amount I’ve played it and the places it’s been. It loves sunlight; give it 5 minutes outdoors on a dry day and it gets even better!
The photos make it look more red than it actually is.
