    Re: Danelectro Guitarlin

    I worked in a guitar shop when these "reissues" came out in the late 90's. They were very affordable and filled a small demand for those wanting a certain sound and look. It is interesting to see...

    Re: Gibson F-5 neck on Ebay

    I noticed that and wondered if that was a good price or not. Certainly several times my interest in the neck, mostly because of the time period. I also wondered what the buyer may have in mind for...

    Re: S.I.T. Strings?

    I've mentioned this before and nothing against SIT strings (I've used them and they are fine) but they are just strings repacked from a major manufacturer. There is no SIT string making factory. ...

    Re: Know what this is? It keeps staring at me!

    That's what I call a true old school auction -- $19.99 starting bid and $17 bucks shipping -- the bidders determined the market value!

    Re: What, when, where?

    shopgoodwill.com

    People claim to have found great deals on this website, but I've found there to be great competition for the name brand instruments and most sell for as much or more than eBay or...

    Re: 2-point Orpheum branded Strad-O-lin on eBay

    Seems a little high to me. 3mm is about an 1/8". I would want it to be about about half that (or lower.) It looks like there is plenty of bridge available to sand down, provided the neck joint is...

    Re: Low End Strad

    Also, tuner style/brands. This would only apply to original instruments with original tuners, of course.

    Re: Low End Strad

    Along with the "comma" f holes we are working toward developing a Strad-O-Lin-specific vernacular. Handy...:cool:

    Re: Tell me why not: Carbon fiber bracing.

    I guess the reason for asking this question is the idea appeals to you. For that I say, why not?, go for it.

    I thought about the Garrison acoustic guitar from Canada with its fiberglass bracing. ...

    Re: Gibson F-5 neck on Ebay

    Looks like it must have come off a mandolin with a busted body and they robbed the neck, the tuners and the truss rod cover. Pre-Siminoff era. F-12 mandolins from that era don't bring tremendous...

    Re: Gibson F-5 neck on Ebay

    Curious piece. It appears to have been mounted to a body and removed, yet there is no finish on back of neck -- at least as far as I can tell -- needs more photos of the back and back of peghead. ...

    Re: 2-point Orpheum branded Strad-O-lin on eBay

    I have also seen more than once the empty screw holes on completely original vintage instruments. I, too, thought it odd the first time, but think it was just the maker thinking more screws would be...

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

    Maybe it's just me, but it seems the 45 style pearl trim looks better against a dark wood, such as rosewood. The pearl against the lighter color Koa just doesn't have the contrast and doesn't seem...
  19. Re: Retailer: W & S 1920s- Any Info? Stromberg-Voisinet

    FWIW, I owned at one time a Weymann labeled 50's flattop guitar made by Kay.

    I bought it because Jimmie Rodgers played a Weymann guitar. Unfortunately, mine was not from the "golden era." A...
  20. Re: Carter Vintage Guitars is now Carter Vintage Exchange

    I know it is not the case, but to an outside observer from another planet looking at the cafe, it would seem most of the mandolin business in the world is controlled by 5 or 6 USA retailers? Sure,...

    I tune before I play each time, then check it between and during songs if something sounds off. Strumming a chord should tell you that without getting the tuner out each time...
  22. Re: Carter Vintage Guitars is now Carter Vintage Exchange

    How do you "sell" a business that has 95% of their inventory consigned? Are the consignments transferred to the new owners? Wouldn't the consignors need to be contacted and sign new agreements? ...
  23. Re: Carter Vintage Guitars is now Carter Vintage Exchange

    I'm really shocked to hear Gryphon wouldn't invest in a $10 set of strings to bring out the best in a $45K guitar.......?! :confused: (especially risking someone mentioning it on an online forum...)

    Re: less heavy tuners

    A true test to see if lighter tuners would make any difference would be to remove the existing tuners and see if it still nosedives.....when worn with the strap. If it does, you are in trouble --...
