Post by: drstrange on February 16, 2013, 12:09:02 AM
Hi
I got a George Washburn Mandoline "A" Style sunburst called M-1S/TS.and I have some questions please.

(SN is 95030098)

1.) When ist this mandolin build
2.) What does "TS" means
3.) What did it cost (roundabout)
4.) Where was it build (Korea??)

Has it the same spec as the M-1S  without "TS" on the washburn site?

Please help me
best regards from germany

Hello, If it is like the guitars than,   1995 build, and TS is Tobacco Sunburst.   And 1995 D10's were built in Korea.   Not sure if M-1S  means  Mando,  level 1,   solid top or not.  There are a few Mando guys on here that will know for sure.   Hope this helps a little.   Tom.  :)
