Back in the late 1800s, Orville Gibson focused his considerable genius on building a better mandolin. He changed the nature of the instrument forever. His new design, a radical departure from the traditional, bowl-backed mandolin, was based on age-old principles of violin construction. This low-profile, carved-back A-4 design was patented in 1898 and formed the basis for the Gibson company, which was founded in 1902.
