    Re: Far East Man on eBay

    I'm pretty sure Far East man is Woodman Instruments in Tokyo. That is probably the premier vintage shop in Japan which means it probably is the Premier vintage shop in the world. I won't even begin...

  4. Re: Pac Rim instruments vs American made instruments ??

    I forgot about my "vintage" so-called Pc-Rim instruments. I have a '77 Yamaha SG2000, black and evil looking. This guitar has a HUGE story behind it but I won't bore you. Suffice to say that this...

    Re: Nice Interview with R. Crumb, mandolin player

    Robert and I are old housemates. I remember December 1968 when he wrote up "Snatch" comics -- a small quickie. I collated and stapled a quick 500 copies and took them around Frisco and sold them,...

    Re: What do you want out of your music store?

    The Loar and a Brazilian D-45 were in a glass case above the retail section under bright lights. They were both heavily faded. No price tags, more like a ransom situation. Saw them last five years...

  15. Re: "What Did Bill Monroe Invent?"-- from another forum

    That has been said about Muddy Water's band -- he made the music "Blues'" instead of playing the Blues.

    I always thought Bluegrass and Heavy Metal had much in common -- I'm serious. Both take...

    Re: CF Martin Article in NYTimes

    I've owned at least 35 old Martins ranging from 1928 to 1969. I've never had a bridge crack. The black acetate guards curled up, the previous ones not so much. I've never seen a Martin neck pre-67...

    Re: CF Martin Article in NYTimes

    I am no fan of any Martin made since 1963 with the exception of the 1976 HD-28 and the recent run of so-called "Authentic" guitars. I have an '05 D-18 Authentic which is a decent axe. The rest of...

  22. Re: Shouldn't all of these "bluegrass" threads be elsewhere?

    Actually it's the other way around: General Mandolin discussions should be 100 percent about Bluegrass. We could have another page w-a-y down the list called "That Other Stuff Whatever You Call It."...

    I need to say something here: This notion that bluegrass is a "deep south" music is incorrect. Kentucky is below the Mason-Dixon line but is in no way the so-called "deep south." Southern Ohio --...
