Dating antique vega mandolin

This cuts down on unwanted overtones and cleans the sound of the instrument up a great deal.Most mandolins like having some tailpiece-area muting!Julian Nelson was an expert on woods and was always responsible for the selection and purchase of the quality timbers that went into the making of Vega instruments.(He died on 14th July 1920 at the age of 51 but his insistence on only the best woods for Vega instruments, was a legacy he left behind him).I love the simple but elegant trim on this particular mando.

Print or paint may wear away with time, so see if any faint impressions of letters or partial words remain. Some makers are more popular than others and can affect the value, especially to collectors.

It plays spot-on with a good straight neck and fast playability.

The tailpiece cover was missing so I muted the extra string length at the tailpiece with a pad of leather.

After a few years Julian and Carl Nelson purchased the controlling interest of the other two partners and Carl entered the firm as full-time financial adviser and a move was made to larger premises on one of the waterfront streets in Boston.

To cope with the fast increasing demand for Vega Instruments a number of workmen were added to the pay roll and several wood working machines installed.
