  1. Re: Any info on this mandolin would be appreciated

    It was most likely made in China (Asian for sure). The brand name means very little as this instrument is imported into the US as well under dozens of brand names. If it's setup well by the shop it...

    Re: Where’s the easy-does-it method?

    Dave is quite the character. It was an enjoyable day we spent there and he did some great work. I got caught in a snow storm on a business trip to Buffalo many years ago. It cured me from going up...

  5. Re: Kalamazoo KM 11 - What's the current street price?

    My experience with them is the same as Mick's. I've owned two. I wouldn't pay that much for one but I'd love to have either one of them back.

    Re: Where’s the easy-does-it method?

    I went there on purpose. It was the day before Halloween 2004. The directions on his website at the time were great. They said "Go north". That was all. I remember driving up The New York Throughway...

    Re: Where’s the easy-does-it method?

    David Nichols at Custom Pearl Inlay in Malone, New York sells a DVD that is probably the fastest way of getting something going on the mandolin I've seen. It's not the end all be all but it's a great...

  10. Re: Where can I get a hard case for a lefthanded f style mandolin

    Then there is this. Reading the comments someone has stated they put an F style in it and it appears to be a mirror image on each side.

  11. Re: Where can I get a hard case for a lefthanded f style mandolin

    In giving this some more thought I'd suggest just contacting Dennis at The Mandolin Store and asking if he could order one from Eastman.
  12. Re: Where can I get a hard case for a lefthanded f style mandolin

    My Calton would take a lefty but that's a lot of money. I have an older Breedlove case that might but I'm not sure if the body size be right. My suggestion would be to contact Eastman and see if they...

    Re: 1931 Fern

    It will actually discolor the case and the mandolin if allowed to stay there. Then again, there is always the possibility of it simply catching fire. The pickguard needs to be put someplace where it...

    Guy was a guitar builder and his personal life was well known as well. I always figured he was talking about wood or ganja and I never gave it much thought.

    Re: New Project - Guy Clark Cover

    Nice. The first time I heard that song was in 1975 in my apartment up off NE 70th and Halsey when station KINK did their album preview of the first Guy Clark album. I'm sure I have the cassette I...

    Probably the closest to a silent mandolin would be a solid top electric not plugged in but it will still make some noise but not much. If you have a friend with a solid body electric guitar mess with...

    A while back, if I recall, there were complaints about these and they were replaced by Stewmac. I have no idea if these are part of that batch. I seriously doubt there would be any way to know but...

    Re: Who Made This? Two Point Mandolin

    Now the listing says it's a Stahl as well. I personally like the poor man's fern inlay on the headstock.

    That is a nasty crack under the tuners.

    Re: Waverly's on an Older Red Diamond A

    Those aren't Gotoh tuners I believe they are older Grovers and the plate is just smaller. Before you cut up the Waverly tuners consider some other better worm over tuners.
