    Re: My MAS is cured.

    I am like MandoMan. I have had some incredible mandolins. But, life happens, and after 30 surgeries I found my doctors wanted to get paid more than I wanted to have a mandolin. Ok, that’s not...

    Re: CITES Question

    The USA is the worst country to send to in my experience, even though there is a free trade agreement in place between the USA and Australia. Added to that is a paperwork nightmare in my own country...

    Re: CITES Question

    Even with the stores who have the paperwork down to a fine art, it can take a long time. I bought a vintage mandolin from one of the big Nashville stores who did things to the letter, and the...

    Re: CITES Question

    We're already about 3/4 of the way there.

    A few years ago, I posted an old B & J Victoria mandolin in the classifieds. It was perhaps a $600 instrument. A fellow in Germany wanted to buy the...

    Re: CITES Question

    There should not be any CITES issues. However, there may be other issues. if the mandolin has a declared value of over $2000 US, then the receiver will need to fill out and lodge a Lacey Act form. ...

    Probably wise. I had a couple of nightmare international buying experiences in the past couple of years, after a lifetime of no trouble whatsoever.

    Worst was a guitar that arrived here in NZ, got...
