Jethro Burns mandolin
« on: August 20, 2010, 11:01:44 AM »
I have a signature series Jethro Burns model mando.  I have it serviced by Nashville luthier Joe Glaser.  Joe is pretty renown for his quality of work and inventions in this area.  Although Washburn is generally regarded as more of a beginner market in mandos, this is an exception.  It's at least midline.  I actually preferred it to some Regals I played.  Too bad Washburn doesn't support their legacy products online with back catalog info.

Any other Jethro mando owners out there?

To bad washburn don't put more into their mandolins, I know they work hard on guitars, but not everyone plays a guitar.
I can find lots of washy guitars here in my neck of the woods. I have only seen a few washy mandos and they were all entry level.

I did get to play a friends Jethro and must say I loved it. and having yours set up by a great Luther must and been the icing on the cake congrats.
