  6. Re: Neck heel crack repair on beater mandolin?

    The neck is coming out due to the pressure of the strings. CA glue will not help you. Time for a new mandolin.

    Re: Eastman 514 vs 314

    In the past I have owned both, albeit some years ago. The 514 will have a glossier finish, nicer tuners and more figure in the maple sides and back. The 314 has a thinner, matte finish and plainer...

    Thanks for the recommendation JB but I am retired from instrument work. My time is spent volunteering and building wooden boats at the lighthouse.

  13. Re: Early Gibson F-4 mandolins with both carved and arch tops?

    They are the same thing using two different terms. The tops and backs are carved from a thicker piece of wood (as opposed to a flat top) to produce an arch, like a violin.

  16. Ain't in it for my health; a film about Levon Helm

    Re: Spring Reverbarator---1901

    Pelone, to be fair, I do not believe that 99.9% of violin and mandolin builders today are even aware of the "string reverberator" that was patented in 1901. So of course they would not consider it.

    Re: Spring Reverbarator---1901
