    Re: Spruce species used for the Asian imports????

    They do use those types, especially Englemann. They use Sitka on some also, as stated, and some European which is also pretty much an Englemann.

    Re: Gibson Master Model on Shopgoodwill

    That's right Danny, intelligent thought should be punished. Now go back to ignoring the rich man taking advantage of the poor and needy... not that I need this mandolin.

    Re: The Mandolin Store

    Not unreasonable but I'm pretty sure they have picks and stings in Maryland already. It also depends on which picks and strings. The total wasn't crazy although it just may have absorbed the savings...

    Re: At what point do I admit I'm a mandolinist?

    A lot of people have gone from guitar to mandolin. I am one of them although I still play guitar a bit. You can admit you are a mandolinist the moment you find out you'll know, usually there will be...

    Re: Every time I buy something

    It might be the contrast between low and high prices or that there are more good ones available. Example: I see a Kimble two point for $6.5K a few months ago then there are two for $4.5K also in...

    Re: Itzhak Pealman And John Denver Playing Bluegrass

    Not saying he wasn't a skilled pilot but I wouldn't say I've got nothing but respect for it. We do know he had his license revoked, flew anyway then died crashing the aircraft.

    Re: Itzhak Pealman And John Denver Playing Bluegrass

    He was a great guitar player/singer/songwriter but the rest is questionable. He got his license revoked for drinking and driving twice then he flew anyway and died in a crash.

    Re: Gail Hester H-5 mandola in the classifieds

    I haven't played one but they sound very traditional and according to Pete the closest to his would be a Sam Bush Gibson(not my opinion). They seem to have a lot of depth, bass and mids. I figure the...

    It definitely looks like a 70's Gibson F5 and it has 'The Gibson' tailpiece.

    Re: Ballpark Prucha Value??

    I think they charged around $3K for it new. I'd say somewhere between $2200-2500 but I have never played one. They have been compared pretty closely with Collings here on the Cafe.

    Re: Restocking Fees

    No, it really doesn't and many other stores had return policies before Walmart was around. It has to do with guarantees/assurance and rapport. Many builders offer approval even on custom ordered/...
