How to Select a Vintage Gibson Mandolin
This page was authored by Dan Beimborn and originally appeared on the Mandolin Pages web site, now revised as the Mandolin Archive, a vintage gibson mandolin guide. In the spring of Dan decided to liquidate the Mandolin Pages and distribute them in various locations on the web.

Information from George Gruhn and Walter Carter is used throughout the guide. This guide is intended as a starting point in a search for a Gibson A-model mandolin from the years
