George Washburn M-2S A-type mando
« on: September 06, 2010, 07:45:31 PM »
Hi, just curious if this mandolin has solid maple sides and back? It has a solid spruce top and sounds pretty sweet (and loud) now that I lowered the bridge to where it's playable. Serial number is 1248. I get from Karen's thread http://forums.washburn.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=18494&SearchTerms=M-2S that it was made in the early 1980s and is worth maybe $150 tops. Mine's identical to the pic Karen posted, even the case.

Just curious if it's got solid b/s.

Tks,

Thanks. That was easier than sawing it in half.
