Re: Bob Shane's Mossman
A shame---I never made it even though I'd been through Staten Island right on Forest Ave. My daughter is in Brooklyn, so it wouldn't have been hard to stop on the way in---sad day, but thanks, Joe P
They sold the building, and I believe sold the business to someone in Cali who does strictly mail order. It's not what it was.
No more "Going to Staten Island, Sharon, to buy myself a mandolin".
I saw a while back where Mandolin Bros was being "saved". Did that ever work out or did they go defunct?....Joe P
Josh, I believe that Mandolin Bros. on Staten Island sold that guitar for Bob years ago, probably in the late '80s or early '90s. Yes, their listing mentioned the hidden chamber. Somewhere, I have some of those old Mandolin Bros. newsletters, and I'll have to see if I can dig out that listing.
