    Re: New Vessel Loar A5 tribute

    If everyone did put "The Gibson" on their mandolins you could always tell the authentic ones because they would be the ones that didn't look right.

  8. Re: Swapping out Gotoh tuners for Waverly on Ellis A

    TEvans, looks great. Glad you had the masters do the work.

    I recently made the trip to the Ellis shop for some work on my Ellis A5. My experience was the same as yours: the best folks you'd ever...

    One other thing, if you're going to use the Waverly bushings buy the Stewmac reamer for those bushings.
  10. Re: Swapping out Gotoh tuners for Waverly on Ellis A

    I made the switch from Gibson Grover tuners to Waverly tuners. I can compare the Gotoh's to the Gibson Grover tuners I removed. They appear to have the same post spacing as the Grover tuners. The...

    Re: What if?

    Can you imagine finding out that the ukulele you sold a few weeks ago for 20 bucks is worth 185K?
    Now, that would suck.

    Re: Andrew Marlin's F

    Yeah, that's "Ella" (John named all his instruments), and it's one of the finest sounding mandolins I've ever run into...seriously.

    Re: Don Julin's beat-up Nugget for sale

    FWIW, when Steve Gilchrist last saw my mandolin (about 3 years ago), I was a bit mortified to show it to him, since I've put quite a bit of wear on it. He looked it over and marveled at the back,...

    Re: Don Julin's beat-up Nugget for sale

    Sadly, most stringed instruments have taken on more importance for some solely for their resale value, not the making of music. That's never been what the Mandolin Cafe is all about. Mandolins are...

    Just a couple thoughts from someone who has played most of these mandolins:

    In my humble opinion the Givens is not much of a mandolin, you are hearing the genius of Andrew Marlin come through...
