Lyon & Healy "B" Mandolin

The middle child in the small Lyon and Healy mandolin family, the "B" is pretty much the same in performance as the styles "A" and "C." As with Gibson and other makers, the models varied more in decoration than tone or playability. This one has that wonderful accessory, the pull out leg rest to keep the mandolin from slipping off your lap as you play.
