    Re: The Discipline Era Transcriptions

    Anybody done anything with this yet? NGR and King Crimson were equally on my radar when the Discipline album came out.

    Hi Cafe,

    Since posting this thread some months ago, I have shifted mandolins around and ended up with a 2020 Craig Wilson WA-5 AND.....a 2019 Duff A-5! The Wilson is a strong-sounding...

    Having played everything on your list, I personally would go for the KM1500.

    Re: Eastman 515 vs J Bovier F5t

    515 is usually a clear winner. The later JBoviers were really nice, with those coming before being decent-to-nice.
  12. Re: The elusive Stelling 2-lump mandolin. Behold the glory!!

    Makes one wonder where they are. In 40 + years I have never seen one pop up in a jam, at a festival or anywhere else. Maybe some demented soul is sitting on a cache of early Stelling mandolins.

    Re: Griffith Loar

    West Coast luthier Craig Wilson also builds his WA-5 Griffith Loar replica. I will have the pleasure of test driving one in the next couple weeks.
  14. Re: The elusive Stelling 2-lump mandolin. Behold the glory!!

    I remember seeing them advertised. Thought they were neat then. Maybe because they were a higher end brand that seemed "more-than-an-A" while "less than an F". Something different to see. As a player...

    Stelling S1/2/3 mandolins

    Saw the one currently in the classifieds. These are fun to see, and I wanted one waaaaaaay back there when they made 'em. I was a teenager then and had hopes that maybe I could scrape the 7-800.00...

    Re: Griffith Loar

    I got to spend an afternoon with The Griffith Loar a few years ago. Still have VHS video somewhere. It remains my favorite looking and sounding of all mandolins.

    Yeah, but did Charlie sign labels for all those years? If he did, that's something I wasn't aware of.

    Re: Charlie Derrington Question

    I own a 7/9/97 Flatiron A5 Artist, signed by Derrington. Seems early for his signature, but very much a part of this conversation.

    Re: Gibson Nouveau mandolin in the classifieds

    I do seem to remember them to be Japan built. Don't believe they are carved top, either, but can't confirm.
  22. Re: Flatiron, A-5 Artist Mandolin 1997 Thoughts?

    Wondering if I just bought this mandolin at Carter Vintage. 7/9/97 Derrington signature with Waverlys and James tailpiece. It's a good one, too.
