If so, I could use some help. On the passing of my grandfather, we found a VERY old instrument in his closet. I think it is a mandolin, but I'm not sure. If anyone has any brains on antique stringed instruments I would appreciate some conversation! I know it is from Italy. Please take a look at the attached pic if you can help.
