    Re: Henderson mandolins

    You are not the original owner, correct? I believe that mandolin was built for a well known old time performer in western NC.

    Re: Henderson mandolins

    I think the number of Henderson guitars vs mandolins is driven by what is ordered rather than which instrument is most profitable.

    Re: Henderson mandolins

    I can think of 6 oval hole Henderson’s that I know about, but am sure the total Wayne built is a few more than that!

    The last time I looked in Wayne’s build book (maybe 2 or 3 months back) total...

    Re: ZETA acoustic mandolin question

    With the recent thread on Flatiron Va Montana Gibson, and seeing Steve Carlson’s name, I was reminded of the Zeta mandolins he was building a couple of years back.

    Are the Zeta mandolins still...

    I wonder how many cases were in the first run? This is interesting as I would not have thought there would be much demand—-guess I don’t get out much!

    Re: Levon Helm

    Thanks, Don— I enjoyed that. I was fortunate to be on the stage when Levon brought the Ramble to Merlefest—one of my very favorite concerts ever.

    The experience of McIrish at Carter’s is the opposite of my own. They were absolutely accommodating and let me play anything I wanted. On my first visit we were pulling a camper and Walter Carter...

    Re: Modern Oval Holes

    If an instrument is prone to having the top cave in, that’s a big reason for me not to get it.

    Spencer Strickland #28

    I thought I'd post a link to a video of Spencer Strickland's latest build. I think Spencer is a cafe member, but haven't seen him promoting his builds. NFI on my part, I just think he is building...

    Re: Mandolin case comparison (for A-models)

    I assume "subway handle" means a handle at the headstock end? I've not owned a case with that type handle, and not sure how much I would use it.

    My MT2 lives in a Superior, and I really like...

    Bounce Away was never on cd that I am aware of. The recording can be found on Amazon. Rest In Peace, Herschel—and than you for the great music.

    If you search for Doug McKee in this forum, there are a couple of mentions by Jim Hilburn. Sounds like Doug was in Colorado and probably did not build many.

    Re: New Ellis Mandolins at Music Emporium

    Yikes on that card!!

    I’m sure not complaining about the prices. Ellis has been building great mandolins for maybe 40 years—I hope the mandolins are at a price level that keeps his business...

    Re: New Ellis Mandolins at Music Emporium

    “ It has a $10K (including a Calton case) tag on it. Pretty steep for an A model.”

    It is $7k less than the Gilchrist Style 3 that I just noticed at Carter’s.

  19. Re: Who Has a Northfield F5-S with Airloom case?

    The fit in old Gibson F5 cases that I have seen was loose. I traded for a Paganoni (Loar era copy) case at a guitar show once, and was surprised at how loose the fit was on any F5 I put in it.
