    Re: E strings unraveling

    You could re loop making a modified loop by passing the free end through the existing loop and drawing that up against the post. Might be a royal pain to remove but, short of replacing the tailpiece...

    Re: Music Store Etiquette

    In my mind this would be the height of “dog and pony show” but, I see your idea Lucas. I’d be a little irritated if I was the seller, know what your own instrument sounds like and plays like, is it...

    Re: E strings unraveling

    Picture of the tailpiece might help but, I think you just got some bad strings. Contact D’Addario, they will probably sent replacements.

    Re: Too Cold to Ship Your Instrument

    Hey, around here it’s too bloody cold to ship ice!
    Sorry, I simply can’t see the “Instant Gratification” required to ship an instrument when it’s middle of winter. If it is “critical”, go and get...

    Re: Early A4 Needs Fairy Godmother

    That’s a shame, such a case of neglect. The work needed will truly be a labor of love! Not for the faint of heart to be sure.

    If you look at it you are more inclined to play it, aren’t you?

    Sailaway, don’t leave the forum just because you are not playing mandolin, you still have plenty to bring to the party! I was very sad to read your post yesterday, I could not think of anything...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Is it the “Custom” high gravel grade orange peel finish on the top that makes it custom or what? I’d say if those are the “good pictures” I don’t think I’d use that one in particular. Whatever, I’m...

  17. Re: ALVAREZ MANDOLIN F Style A900 early 1970's on Ebay

    I agree, if you have no access to someone with the skills minor problems become much more major. I had skill in a whole hatful of well talented shop guys.
    Mine does have the riser Jim and it was a...
  18. Re: ALVAREZ MANDOLIN F Style A900 early 1970's on Ebay

    That’s the slightly more elaborate model than my “700” (obviously) it didn’t exist when I bought mine, in ‘75.
    If it’s within your means, go ahead, I bought mine sight unseen and have never...

    I found that a while ago and must have watched it half a dozen times! Great historical footage!
