8ch(pl) Help Identifying a Mandolin (15) RE: Help Identifying a Mandolin 20 Jul 03

Does the headstock taper in toward the top? If so it is a "Snakehead" model A. If it is wider at the top than at the nut it is the more common Paddle head.

Is the back actually flat, not carved? I believe this is either the A0 or A Jr model.

The Blackface Snakehead model A has been listed in Mandolin Brothers lately for about $2800 US if I recall correctly.

There is some information

Hope this helps. You are fortunate to own such a nice instrument.
