    Re: Post a picture of your Gilchrist

    Sam, glad to see your F4jr. I’ve played some Gils, but don’t recall playing one of his ovals. Would love to. I’ve eyed a couple, I am a fan of ovals. You say it’s your fave. Compared to vintage...
  3. Re: Where can a classical/Italian player find a non-bowlback mand

    I’m with Allen & Mick with suggesting Martin Mandolins. They do have a range of models, but a simple A or B will do nicely. & an A is relatively inexpensive. They are under appreciated because they...

    Re: Gibson F2 and F4 mandolins.

    A general rule is pre 21-pre truss rod, the necks have a stouter wider neck. They tend to slim down once the truss rod enters the picture. I think the pre 21s tend to have that more robust sound....

    Re: Gibson F2 and F4 mandolins.

    I have both A & F Gibson ovals. Love both. As a general rule, the Fs are a “bling-ier” version, not necessarily better playing or sounding. But bling-ier is cool.

  8. Re: John Abercrombie's e-mandos were auctioned off last November.

    I am really bummed I missed this. I would have bid on either or both. Abercrombie was an interesting Jazz Guitar player who experimented on Electric Mandolin. I would have loved to have one of his...

    Looking again, mine is like the one on page 48. Although mine Is published by Paolilli’s of Providence, RI. What a strange web they weave.

    Just wonderful. She has such a nice touch. Well done, Nancy. I love the Blake Mandolin instrumentals. They don’t sound like standard run of the mill fiddle tunes, with lots of speedy notes. They...

    Re: Gilchrist

    I’ve played several & been up close & personal with a few Gilchrists. I thought they’ve all been outstanding. Carter’s in Nashville has had a Gilchrist F2, oval hole, for sale for a while. I don’t...

    Thanx, Eugene, for your usual historic postings. I have a rather surface knowledge of the various early Mandolins designs. I have mused that I’d like to have a Tuscan Mandolin, 4 gut strings, tuned...

    Chick Corea RIP

    Chick Corea was one of the giants of Jazz since the 60’s. Composer, improviser, band leader, Chick was a major talent. I saw him in an early version of Return to Forever. So exciting & fresh on the...

    Re: Tiny Moore Tuesday

    Hayes, Great choice & well executed as usual. Tiny gets a little boppish in bar 7, a 5 to a b5 sub (D7 to Ab7) lick, leading back to the 1. That’s my read on it, very hip. Hope that isn’t too Jazz...

    Re: Mandolin G + D octave strings

    It can be fun. Like Ronald said, if you have more than one Mandolin you could leave one with octaves. I’ve done it a few times for a Bluesy Carl Martin effect. Just temporarily. I wouldn’t use for...
