Find of the Week – 1915 Gibson Mandolin Harp Guitar – $14,000

So many strings, so little time. The instrument in this Find of the Week isn’t sure what it wants to be, but I’m sure that I want to play it. Somewhere in San Bernardino it waits for you to buy it, but it’s no stranger to waiting. It’s almost a hundred years old, and it’s owner is asking a hefty price tag, so it knows it will wait. Is it waiting for you?

I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
