By the way….there was an unstated trivia question and nobody noticed that this trivia had been asked once before.

Yes, this question was within another trivia question, a year or more ago. All the brand names I listed this time were current, active, mandolin makers. As I’ve said before, we live in a new “golden age” of bluegrass instrument choices. Man, when I was a kid learning bluegrass, the choices were MIGHTY thin! The appetite for bluegrass pickers to acquire good quality instruments appears hard to satisfy! While pickers have the slight chance of making “tens of dollars” playing bluegrass, the dealers who sell picking SUPPLIES are doing very well indeed. Hmmm, is there a lesson in that?
Congratulations to the the winners! I try to balance “easier” ones with “bitching hard” trivia questions.
I’m just sad that harmonicas got involved…
