    Re: Mandolin 'dogs'?

    I played a Derrington F-5 that simply didn’t speak to me once, it felt rather “Standoffish” to me, just was not inviting at all.
    I’ve played several expensive instruments over the years that were...

    Re: Plans for the Gibson Kalamazoo Site

    Yes Mick, the surrounding area is “depressed” to say the least, gunfire does erupt from the street one block over pretty often in the summer, the roads are ghastly. “Pie in the sky” project is a very...

    Re: Plans for the Gibson Kalamazoo Site

    Tree, my guitar player probably did the binding on your guitar!
    It’s sad that the place is frankly turning into a “Musically themed” amusement park with precious regard to the larger history of the...

    Re: Are Music Store Prices Firm?

    I only have one. But, surely no one takes me seriously!
    And don’t call me Shirley!
    I’m headed to my corner, I known I know.

    Re: Plans for the Gibson Kalamazoo Site

    JB, the rendering does show the restored smokestack so one might assume that it will be in the final design, if it were gone what would the point be? The weird thing is, Kalamazoo has hundreds of...

    Re: Plans for the Gibson Kalamazoo Site

    Since all the hand built aspect of “Heritage” was sold and the veteran staff was walked out the door, to replace things with a more mass produced “cookie cutter” production ethic, I have not been...

    Re: Crambone

    I’m with you Ranald,
    Modern animation is pretty awful, CGI is just disturbing, none of it is anything like the old honest ink to acetate (or vellum) powered by vats of coffee and speed!

    Re: Are Music Store Prices Firm?

    I think some individual stores may have a little bit of wiggle room but, every store has got to turn some profit to keep the doors open. Guitar Center has a much broader dealership network and can...

    Re: E strings unraveling

    You could re loop making a modified loop by passing the free end through the existing loop and drawing that up against the post. Might be a royal pain to remove but, short of replacing the tailpiece...

    Re: Music Store Etiquette

    In my mind this would be the height of “dog and pony show” but, I see your idea Lucas. I’d be a little irritated if I was the seller, know what your own instrument sounds like and plays like, is it...

    Re: E strings unraveling

    Picture of the tailpiece might help but, I think you just got some bad strings. Contact D’Addario, they will probably sent replacements.

    Re: Too Cold to Ship Your Instrument

    Hey, around here it’s too bloody cold to ship ice!
    Sorry, I simply can’t see the “Instant Gratification” required to ship an instrument when it’s middle of winter. If it is “critical”, go and get...

    That’s a shame, such a case of neglect. The work needed will truly be a labor of love! Not for the faint of heart to be sure.

    JB, what a monumental offer! You just crack me up!

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

    Is it the “Custom” high gravel grade orange peel finish on the top that makes it custom or what? I’d say if those are the “good pictures” I don’t think I’d use that one in particular. Whatever, I’m...
