  1. Re: Gibson F5-G with bottom edge damage (need advice Buy or Pass)

    $3700 would be close to the top for a F5G in really good shape with no issues. Did the seller disclose this in the ad or after the fact? If he was not upfront it would go back, period. I agree with...
  2. Re: Flatiron Performer A mandolin Nashville built

    Since no one else has chimed in I will give you my 2 cents. I think they are a sleeper. They are built on the same benches as Gibson mandolin at the time and even have a Gibson label. For some reason...

    Re: Hello, I am new here

    If you decide to purchase another mandolin Eastman and Kentucky make good mandolins and are a terrific value. If you buy one from one of the site sponsors it should come with a decent setup and ready...
  6. Re: Advice on buying a new mandolin? Been playing for 15+yrs

    I think Kentucky and Eastman build fine mandolins. The common thought it the newer ones are better than older ones. Some of the Eastman 605's came with a pick-up, if you could fine a used one it...
  7. Re: Looking for advice on best mandolins around 5K

    Re: Question about shipping

    So how far is it between you and the builder? Across country? Shipping to Canada is expensive and then to add an additional $400 (US or CAD?) on top tells me it would be outrageous. Also they say...

    Re: Leather Handle for G&S case?

    Someone was selling nice looing replacement handles on the forum, but I have not seen them listed for quite a while. I would think the D rings would be able to be removed buy spreading them.
  10. Re: Mandolin Tasting: Gibsons, Buckeye, Duff, Northfiled

    I listened with a decent pair of headphones. I do like the fact that they all were played by the same player with the same strings and pick. sure some mandolins may prefer a certain string or pick....

    Re: Loar 600 vs Eastman MD615

    They are also an Eastman dealer so would be good to give them a call an explain what you are looking for and get their recommendation.
  12. Re: Considering a trade - is it me or the mandolin

    I also do not have big hands, so a wide nut or chunky neck does not work for me. I have had several mandolins on the catch and release program. some really good mandolins buy respected builders that...

    Collings instruments are pretty consistent. If you take 10 of the same model from any maker you will notice some differences and a coupe will probable stand out and a couple might not be quite as...

    That would have ben finished/labeled on December 15, 2000 and the third mandolin labeled that day. Charlie Derrington was the head luthier at that time and as mentioned Gibson did not sign the F5G's...

    Re: Unsigned Loar on Reveb

    No guarantee it actually sold. I would think if you could afford that one you could have invested a little more and got an actual signed Loar. I think this was listed in the classifieds as well.
