information about a Hohner mandolin

Posted by friendinchrist on Sunday, July 31, 2016

I've been looking to buy another mandolin and stumbled across a few 1970"s Japanese two point mandolins, one being an Alvarez and the other a Taka.  I didn't get either of them but someone showed up at church tonight with a Hohner A style two point mandolin.  I can't find a serial or model number anywhere on the mandolin.  It is in great shape and has a good sound.  The guy doesn't know what he wants for it and I can't find another one for sale anywhere on the internet.  I know that Hohner isn't a great mandolin but some of the knock offs of Gibson copies were good.  Any idea of what I should pay for the instrument?  It appears to be solid spruce top, maple sides and back.

Information about a hohner mandolin with two reference points which are mention in the description material. To choose australia assignment help for these two points are really perfect because information in these two points are seriously shared.

Pics would help, but I would think $200-300 would be top end, even if it's a solid 2-point. Most Hohner's, going back to the late 60s, are laminated. I think all have been made in Korea or China. I see that there are some new F-styles available now that are retailing for $660, but no idea who actually makes them.

I had a Hohner FMH 100 from ~2005, and it was solid wood. The sound was good, and a huge step up from my starter mando. That said, it was nothing compared to my Shawnee Creek, or the Gibsons I have had a chance to play.
