    Re: Iwamoto Tuning Peg

    The bushings almost looked like concave openings on my phone.

    Re: Iwamoto Tuning Peg

    I figured they were older Gotoh's that have the square shaft and use the same button. The lack of a bushing surprises me.

    You're probably right as he is suing some Waverly tuners on his mandolins....

    Re: Iwamoto Tuning Peg

    As John has said, post a picture of the back of the headstock. That way we can identify the tuner manufacturer.

    Are the posts where the button was square or is it two flats and two half rounds? My...

    Re: Victoria Mandolin tail piece

    No, the holes aren't original. They still make that tailpiece.

    Re: Stradolin bargain(?) alert

    It was in Asbury Park, NJ at one time if I'm reading the label right. I'm going to go out on a limb and say this might be one of the last of the real Strad-O-Lins made, that is commissioned by Sorkin...
  7. Re: Is there something off with this Vintage Gibson F4?

    The resemblance issue is big. It indicates to me possible repairs, perhaps even by Gibson in later years. I can't imagine anyone would gather the parts and build a fake F4 but I can imagine someone...

    Re: I'm amazed by the Tone Gard

    How many mandolins have you tried one on? They also should be carved back mandolins.

    Re: I'm amazed by the Tone Gard

    The Tonegard is the only mandolin accessory that I will unequivocally recommend. I have used one on my Gibson F5G for a decade or more.
  10. Re: Is there something off with this Vintage Gibson F4?

    Take a trip over to Dan Beinborn's Mandolin Archive and see if by chance your mandolin is listed. Many times repairs are listed in descriptions as well. It may or may not be there. The other thing I...

    Re: Tuning Machine Knobs

    Some buttons will fit certain tuners, it depends on the age, make and model. What John says is generally true. The best thing you can do is to post a picture of the tuners on the back of the...

    Re: I Just Bought A Violin

    My attempt was similar Ted. In my book there's no justification for resorting to violins.

    Re: kentucky serial no.

    Kentucky has a few accounts on eBay where they sell their seconds and returns. I believe your mandolin was one of those. You can contact Saga and and aske about the serial number. There is a contact...

    Re: Blinged up stromberg-viosinet

    You are correct, the Chicago factories were very good at their faux finishes. I had a friend that bought a parlor guitar years ago that he just knew was BRW only to have it look totally different on...

    Re: Blinged up stromberg-viosinet

    Catalogs surface all the time but this may have never been listed as it might have been done for a trade show or as a gift for someone. I agree with your final assessment and I don't think some...

    Re: Blinged up stromberg-viosinet

    Three possibilities. It left the factory that way and that's possible. Somebody spent some money and time having a decent inlay artist do the binding and fretboard and the final (and I can't tell...
  18. Re: Confused and Hard earned expensive advice

    Just to get this out there, the OP has pretty much identified the builder and that's an issue but they really need to review the Posting Guidelines because we are real close here.
  19. Re: Under Worm to Over Worm Tuning Machine

    I believe those are an older Grover tuner model, are the buttons held on by screws? There is a Korean brand tuner that shows up that's kind of a knockoff between a Schaller and a Grover. If you...
  20. Re: Under Worm to Over Worm Tuning Machine

    The general terms are worm over and worm under. I'm not sure what you have. You generally cannot switch them as the position they occupy on the headstock can make the buttons impossible to turn. Take...
  21. Re: Junk Late 40s A50- Bonus S-O-L Tailpiece!

    It's plastic or celluloid that was used on the Strad-O-Lin mandolins of a certain age. It matched the pickguard. Removing it would simply give you a Waverly style cloud tailpiece cover with two rivet...

    Re: Calling time on this F4 listing.

    You are making an assumption that it's not at cost already. To be honest this is much ado about not very much. Nobody is forcing anyone to look at that ad. Not a whole lot to see here folks.

  24. Re: Gretsch not making mandolins? Does anyone know why?

    Dylan's apartment was on West 4th Street. In Manhattan there is a 4th Street and a 4th Avenue. Streets go cross town and Avenues go uptown and downtown. The song was called Positively 4th Street for...
  25. Re: Gretsch not making mandolins? Does anyone know why?

    These later Gretsch New Yorker mandolins were said to be a copy of the older Gretsch New Yorker mandolins that, by the way were rebadged Harmony products.
