  2. Re: Source for Gibson banjolele 30's transfer?

    There are Gibson logo stickers on eBay all the time. The problem will be finding that style logo. Mostly it's the electric guitar age. With that said, if it's actually a Gibson instrument you can get...
  3. Re: Removing the bridge cover on a Martin

    Hold the mandolin while sitting in a chair with the neck between your legs and the headstock pointed down and the back pointed at your body. Grab onto the back end of the mandolin on both sides of...
  4. Re: Removing the bridge cover on a Martin

    The sizes might be just a little different. Over the years they have varied slightly. You can find them now and again on eBay. What you want is the base and the cover even if your base is fine, it...
  5. Re: Removing the bridge cover on a Martin

    Let us know how it works out. I actually stick a piece of thick stick-on felt in a line under the cover. It won't slide down all the way but it stops any overtones you might hear.
  6. Re: Removing the bridge cover on a Martin

    If it's the original tailpiece It's basically a Waverly Cloud type tailpiece. The cover slide straight up off the base. Here is one disassembled shown from two different angles. The cloud cover...

    Re: another string changing tip

    Cool. On my Gibson with stamped steel tailpiece I use a small rare earth magnet that I keep attacked to my string cutter in the case pocket to hold the string on. That's just a simply elegant...

    In my book Adrian pretty much has it right but I hadn't considered consecrated infant's spittle before now.

    Re: F style mandola tuners

    Chances are they are a standard spacing size. The tuners appear to be worm under like the ones you linked to. You may need to drill some new screw holes and the bushing's might be different sizes. On...

    Re: Help please!!!! Messed up pretty bad

    You kind of have to take a step back here. The mandolin already had an issue, it didn't look as bad as it does now but if it hadn't already been messed up he wouldn't have asked you to try and fix...
  14. Re: Quality tuners for F style - opinions welcome

    Those look like Mini tuners. How about a picture of the back of the headstock. If they aren't all on a plate then you may not want mandolin tuners.

    Never mind, don't need the picture. I went to...

    Re: Best way to fix this bowed neck?

    Generally very few, if any, luthiers will jump up and say they do neck repairs on bowlback mandolins. You pretty can do whatever floats your boat. These weren't built like any modern day instruments.

    Re: KM-1500 neck issue

    There's no money above the 7th fret so you should be good.

    Move it along as a project and see if you can get at least some of your money back.

    Years ago I wrote a program to search the Cafe that allowed me to retain the search information in a link. I used it for several years but the Google search just works better so I use that.

    Re: Do You Have Too Many Instruments?

    With apologies to Steven Wright...

    I have a hobby. I have the world’s largest collection of banjo mandolins. I store them in landfills and attics all over the world. Maybe you’ve seen some of them.

    Unfortunately linking to a Cafe search ID like you have gets nothing for the O.P. You can however use Google to search and post that as a readable link.
