    Re: Information on resonator mandolin

    It looks like a resonator single cone with biscuit bridge. Here's a 30's period National I once owned, pictured dissembled and together.
  3. Re: Hoping someone has seen one of these before

    From the front it looks carved, from the side it looks rather flat. The sides seem very deep. Perhaps home made?

  5. Re: A Gibson A3 in the white. In the white get it?

    I no longer own it but it had the familiar headstock inlay used on the A3, it's hard to see in the photo. Since this mando was a project when I got it, I had the idea of changing it to the snakehead...
  6. Re: A Gibson A3 in the white. In the white get it?

    Not the best picture but here's the A3 that I picked up years ago as a project. It had a headstock repair and the top was stripped. I decided to have some fun with it and make it a black face plus I...

    Re: Ebay: Kalamazoo mandolin

    Yes Mike, a painted parrot would be something! I found these that I've posted in the past, My friend Tom White with his old D-18 with rooster decal and an American flag on an archtop that I aquired. ...

    Ebay: Kalamazoo mandolin

    Do decals make a mandolin more valuable? I don't know... perhaps a Lloyd Loar with a parrot decal?

    Re: Tuner Buttons Buzzing

    I've used Sunburst's solution for dropping super glue into the button at shaft juncture with success. I also like pops1 idea of modifying an existing plate but not sure if my ocd would allow it, lol!...
  10. Re: A Gibson A3 in the white. In the white get it?

    journeybear,

    Glad the mandolin is staying in our Cafe' family. If you're going to a black finish, you might have your luthier change the sound hole binding from black to ivoroid. I had a basket...
  11. Re: Guess that rig - Jarrod Walker edition

    My guess would be internal mounted K& K twin pickup and Pro 35 AT external mic or DPA mic.
  12. Re: A Gibson A3 in the white. In the white get it?

    Jeff, this A went for more that I would have been willing to pay. The A3's can sound pretty sweet though, probably worth it the buyer.

    You are right about Ebay charging tax according to your...
  13. Re: One of those days - string changing woes

    It would be cool if you could find an older working set of tuners with longer posts to replace. I suspect a modern tuner swap may require enlarging the diameter of the holes as well. I don't...

    Ebay: unusual shape mandolin

    Seller's descriptions are often funny. This instrument has what looks like a top (circle) inset sort of like Rigel tops.

  19. Re: What did you goof up when building your first mandolin?

    Mistakes I've made, not all on the same build: I cut the button off of the back plate that usually covers the heel. I had to put an ebony cap on it. I cut f-holes that were not symetric. I made a...

  23. Re: Augustino LoPrinzi electric mandolin on Ebay

    I first become aware of LoPrinzi guitars through Mark Cosgrove, when I lived near Philly. I liked the headstock shape he used.

    After countless times removing old strings from repair projects, I've come to appreciate my winder that slips into my mini rechargable, pistol grip screwdriver.
