Spec's on the 1993 Bill Monroe Signature limited edition mandolin

Recommended Posts

I have bid on (and Won) a 1993 Gibson Bill Monroe signature limited edition F-5 mandolin #64 of 200. My question is did they produce any of these with a varnish finish? I have studied the pictures of the one I am to recieve in a day or two and compared it to other pictures (the few I can find) and the dark shading on the burst appears to be much wider on the one I bid on. I have a 3 day period after reciept to return it no questions asked. I suspected it had some finish work done on it, but just not sure. I do some luthier work and action build some mandolin. I got into this one at a resoniable price, if I can live with it. If anyone has any info on any of the spec's on these mandolins I would apprecaite it. I was told it has a Adirondack top on it,I think I might be able to tell if that is the case when it gets here as I build with particular wood, but maybe not. Any help would certainly be appreciated. thanks

Hi. I have an old Gibson tenor banjo junior, twenty frets. Where the patent number is usually stamped it is stamped "patent applied for." Can anyone help me determine the age and tell me anything about it?
