    Re: Ibanez 526 and 527 Mandolins

    Unfortunately, Bill hasn’t been around for nearly 5 years!

    That case is the same as the one that came with my 524. I swapped it some years later for a Calton - a friend had it built for his but...

    Re: Hi, first mandolin. Any ideas on identity?

    Looks Portugese to me. Almost Romanian or eastern European but these tend to have a zero fret. Quite a wide neck so it’s possible it isn’t even a mandolin!

    Hang tight and somebody will soon be...

    Re: Instrument stand for Epiphone Mandobird...

    The Hecules wall hangers use the same mechanism and will just about cope with a Fender Mandostrat headstock and the tripple floor-stand will adjust to fit a drednaught guitar, a GBOM and a mandolin...

    Re: id for mandolin with rowing woman?

    No need to apologise; I never thought it was yours. Still looks like something from a souvenir shop!

    Re: id for mandolin with rowing woman?

    Difficult to tell from the poor image but it looks more like something you’d find in Italian souvenir shops.

    Re: Need help identifying please

    Good idea. I’ve often been asked how much an old instrument is worth and often replied “As much as you’d pay to hang it on the wall”.

    Re: Drop In Tuners For 1933 Gibson A

    The problem with measuring them is likely to be being precise enough - we’re talking millimetres here. The best way to find which you have is to look at the worm gears. The teens to twenties tuners...

    Re: Need help identifying please

    Its a mandolin-banjo or a banjo-mandolin. The zero-fret suggests that it’s European. There’s nothing unusual about the tuners “pointing down” - look at any classical guitar - this is because it has a...

    Re: Breedlove “Black Gold” ???

    Thanks again Ryan. I assume, because the signature is inside the instrument that, at the time, he was building rather than finishing.

    From the lack of information readily available, the "Black...

    ..... or buy a mic(s) which will plug into the XLR sockets on the sides of the unit. https://www.thomann.de/fr/cat_GK_mi.html?shp=eyJjb3VudHJ5IjoiZnIiLCJjdXJyZW5jeSI6MiwibGFuZ3VhZ2UiOjR9&reload=1

    As Keith says, it depends what type of mic it is. If it needs to be powered the way to do this is covered on page 88 of the manual but be careful sending power to a mic that doesn’t need it could...

    Re: 1976 Epiphone BG440

    Same age as my old Ibanez 524. As rcc56 says, Pac-rim instruments were as good as you could get back then and I played it into the 21st century. Likely heavily built and finished. You could do...

    Re: Feedback on a magnetic pickup

    There is, of course, a halfway house between a soundboard pickup and a magnetic one. Have you considered a Fishman bridge? They don’t sound totally like an acoustic mandolin but likely more-so than a...

    Re: Breedlove “Black Gold” ???

    Thanks for that Ryan. It may well be “Joey” - I’ve only ever seen Angela mentioned - the photo of the signature is on my desktop (it took some taking!). Do you happen to know what Joey’s function was?

    Re: Djangolin, D.J. Hodson, Selmer Mandolin

    A friend of mine has a Hodson; at least I think he still has it, and, a few years ago, I borrowed it for a while. It’s a very early one and the later ones might have been better but it was definitely...
