Thread Name: F-style or A-style mandolin?
Subject: RE: F-style or A-style mandolin?
Many years ago, I recall reading a quote from someone whose opinion I respected, I think Norman Blake, that Tut Taylor's Loar A5 was the best sounding mandolin that he'd ever played. This was the only A model that Loydd Loar ever signed. The A5 is the long necked (15 fret) A model.
