  1. Re: First instrument(s) suggestions - mostly Irish/celtic/folk

    Of your own suggestions, they are all good. I don't play ITM, but have heard the Kentucky, Calhoun and different Big Muddy models over the years. And have owned a few Big Muddy/Mid Missouri...
  2. Re: Vega cylinderback with no logo ... made for the trade?

    Am wondering if this was left handed at one point? The strap button and tan line at the bridge make me wonder.

    If it doesn't need work, seems to me like it's a good deal.
  3. Re: NICE OLD PICK GUARD (1930'S or 1940's ???)

    Nope. Mine is about 3 1/8. It's closer. But the length would send it all the way to the bridge and it would be a touch wider than the body of mine, which is a ca. 1935 SOL.

    Re: Early 1900s Gibson Catalogue

    Just for posterity - final selling price was $1,200.00.

    Wow.

    Re: Eastman Vs. Morris

    Have played both, and while I like the Eastman, would get a Morris instead. Both should hold up well. That's not a problem. The biggest difference will be a Morris under $1k will probably be a...

    Re: Ebay Gibson F-5

    IMO, it's silly. Then again, he's asking $16k for a 1954 D-28 with an 80's case.

    That mandolin will be for sale for a long time at that price, IMO.

    Not much to add. Just read it from a mutual friend on FB. He played in Contracopia as well as Foot Notes with Beth Horven Rotto. Also was a composer and was the person behind Playford for Mandolin...

    Re: Loars at Carter’s

    Yes, and a friend who is a vintage dealer let me know years ago that bursts have their own market and rarely make it on to the sales floor (or website these days).

    Re: Tuner Recommendations

    Another vote for the Peterson iStroboSoft app. Does a nice job showing which octave it is picking up.

    To not add anything Korg Sledgehammer Pro tuner comes packaged in what is known as a "can of...
  10. Re: URGENT: Found stolen Pegasus case - Goshen, IN

    Possibly the OP has been advised it would be best not to say anything more if there is something going on. Hopefully it gets resolved and we can find out what happened.

    Re: Clown Barf Construction

    Ha! First off, that pretty much lines up with my own observations on those three picks. Also, that's probably the first time I've seen David Lindley referred to being a hipster. Brought a smile to my...

    Re: Eastman Octave Mando...

    There is quite a bit out there on this forum and in other places. Mostly when they first showed up and then as the 2nd batch arrived. That's when I got mine. While I have looked at other OM's since...

    Re: Screamin' CL deal on a (very worn) F2

    Good luck. Hope it is a deal and you are able to get it. That's the type of instrument I'd love. Thankfully am in a full buying moratorium right now.

    Re: Northfield F style strap

    I wear mine over the left shoulder. Habit from guitar playing days. And yes, it is both comfortable and well made although the leather is slightly stiff new. Being thicker leather that's just the way...

    Re: Northfield F style strap

    Got one for my F5S. It's high quality work and I like it. Also comfortable.

    Yes, the Lakota can stretch. I have a custom round one that I had on a different instrument. The round braid is much...

    Here's hoping the OP has been cured of MAS. Can easily see those two instruments being enough. Had a Flatiron Performer that I moved on earlier this year and it was definitely a keeper if I hadn't...

    Re: New NMD - Collings

    Very cool. And that is a great looking one. As a first mandolin, that's also a great last mandolin if you so chose. Betting it sounds as good as it looks.

    And as much as I love Collings, that...

    Re: “The gibson” stencil or decal

    The regular A model did not have a logo. Or at least wasn't supposed to have one. Starting with the A-1 model there was a logo. Had a 1910 A with no logo for a while. Good sounding instrument.

    Re: Gibson A-4, Teens vs 20s

    Well, I will say that Loar era one really looks clean. Like, wow. Even the case looks nice from what I can see in the one photo.

    As it has EVO frets and has been gone over by Bruce, it's probably...

    Re: Gibson A-50 up for auction

    To my untrained eye it looked like the stain is from red felt under a Dearmond "monkey on a stick" pickup. Maybe someone got the felt wet and it bled? Stained the top so either keep it as is, or...

    Re: Warm up song

    It changes. Often it's whatever tune I'm working on. One that's been maybe memorized, but not that comfortable yet. Right now it's Snigelschottis. Other times it's a Quebec tune. Also changes...

    Re: Fender medium-gauge guitar pick

    Well, have found that a thinner pick sounds best - to me and my bandmates - on my Coombe. So for that one a Tortex .73 (yellow) is what I've settled on. For now. Practice at home, it's a Tortex 1.14....

    Re: Bravo D'Addario XS Strings!

    That's excellent news. Always been a big frustration. Probably have close to a dozen spare E strings (and some A) just for that reason.

    Okay, am probably remembering this wrong, but back in the day clown barf picks were made from essentially leftover plastics of whatever kind were around. Some celluloid, some not. Just fused together...
