    Re: 1987 Gibson F5L

    That looks to be in spectacular condition for its age.

    The price is about $700-1000 "on the high side" to me, but the condition may have something to do with it.

    These will play and sound a...

    Re: Only change ONE string at a time!!

    I change strings ONE PAIR at a time.
    Maintains "enough" tension and offers a little more "working room".

    Re: Pawn Shop F5L

    It was a Carlson-signed instrument, but had some nasty finish problems on the scroll (as seen in the auction pics).

    I thought 6,800 was about 2,000 "too high" for that one...

    All "Ferns" have a fern inlay on the headstock.

    But not all Gibsons with fern inlays are "Ferns".

  15. Re: Need help identifying Gibson Loar era mandolin

    That may not have been a high-end model in its time, but it has come through the years far better than most.

    I'd get it "tuned up" by a good mandolin luthier and keep it !

    It had a hybrid sound that combined the desirable...

    Take the money you would have spent on a mid-70's Gibson and buy a Northfield.
    It will look and sound better.
