I actually don’t know a lot about this mandolin, other than the fact that it is beautiful. I guess I do know two more things about it. I know the date it was built because it was written on the inside, and I know that it makes me wish I could play the mandolin better. I didn’t get it directly from Grandpa. I actually just recently got it as a christmas present from my mom after she had purchased it back from its original owner.
