Mike Black and Bill Bussman (old wave mandolins) use the 12-fret, transverse, oval hole design also.

My preference? Just go buy a paddle-head Gibson! They are all over and (usually) worth the price!

I had an oval-hole hybrid and didn't like it at all! For the 15-fret neck joint, I'll just take f-holes!

I love my 1920 A3 and it's been a good friend for well over 30 years. I'm the second owner!
