    Re: Mandolin Café Milestones

    JB, you certainly find interesting things to discuss!
    I was turned on to the site by Bill Halsey after a late night of red wine and interesting conversation! It was the original “Loar picture of the...

    Well, aah, umm, no.
    Just no.
    Thanks,
    Must go.
  4. 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...
  5. 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...

    Re: please help

    Time changes with age, I agree with Mike, that’s most likely from the mid-late 70’s at earliest. I wonder if your grandfather had a different one and maybe your mom has gotten them turned around....
  7. Re: Customer selecting specific woods for custom build

    In the custom jewelry world people come in with all sorts of parameters they have to have. Then reality hits! I had one guy that asked about a 2 carat natural (non enhanced, think, torrefied) green...

    Man, I feel that one! Sorry can’t help you but, I’ve found that empty case problem before myself!
    If I had one, I’d burn you a copy!
  9. Re: Ralph Stanley & Clinch Mountain Boys - GREAT 1972 video

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

    Re: The Darlings Mandolin switch

    Absolutely right Flatrock, I remember Tom saying that for most of the recordings Dean Webb used an F-5 in the recording tracks, unless that turnip truck backed over my head. I was fascinated by those...

    Re: Mandolin sighting!

    Sorry, too “current” musical pablum for me. A “tweedle” on a bowlback does not say mandolin content to me, a sight gag at best. Sorry, just my opinion.

    I thought that TP was meant for ball end strings, no?
  16. Re: 1964 Guild 1964 F-30 Special Brazilian Rosewood

    This is a fascinating thread for a non luthier but Guild flag waver! Back in the 70’s when I was selling them, I never knew that they had straight dovetails! Wow!

    Sorry, I’ll go to the corner now!

    Re: Halsey mandolin, fiddle and bow

    Bill did “modify” truss rods to titanium on at least a couple (yep, with the old thread) that I know of. As well as repro bridges with titanium studs and thumbscrews, weight saving!

    Re: Halsey mandolin, fiddle and bow

    Yep, those pictures show Bill’s appreciation for beautiful varnish work. I don’t play fiddle but, if I did I am sure a Halsey would be a comfortable instrument to live with.
