My friend inherited a mandolin - there is no visible inscription but family lore has it that it is about 100 years old and came from Austria. Does anyone know where we could find someone that can help us learn more about this instrument?

  • It would definitely help to add a sound sample since the way a instrument sounds helps to identify it. Could you record a few chords? – Bebs Jul 23 '19 at 6:48
  • @Bebs No need to identify it: it's a mandolin. The question is, where does this particular instrument come from? The tag is misleading – PiedPiper Jul 24 '19 at 12:26
  • @PiedPiper you are right. Do you have a better tag suggestion? – Floris Jul 24 '19 at 13:10
  • I think a new tag "instruments" is needed for non-identification questions. – PiedPiper Jul 24 '19 at 13:36
