  1. Re: Gibson Master Model vs Custom Master Model - advice please

    ^^^THIS!! I'm not convinced this is a true varnished Master Model. And $9k is definitely too much $$ for a modern, lacquer Gibson F5.

    Will be interesting to see how this shakes out and the ultimate impact on inventory.

    Re: Price increases coming soon or already here

    A great time to sit back and enjoy what you've got! Except for that guitar I have on order. And do I try old time banjo a third time??? Decisions, decisions.....:))

    Re: Price increases coming soon or already here

    The only surprising thing is it's taken them this long.

    I doubt this has any impact on domestic builders since none of them play at this price point.
  12. Re: F5 Upgrade Guidance - Gibson, Collings, Northfield

    I'm not aware of a Kimble F5 currently on the market but they have shown up in that range. There were recently 2 Duffs for sale at $6,800 and $7,500
  13. Re: F5 Upgrade Guidance - Gibson, Collings, Northfield

    All three solid instruments. I'm not a big Northfield fan but I haven't played their latest high end stuff. There's a Collings MF5 in the classifieds for $5,900. They're always easy to move if you...

    Re: Loars at Carterís

    A better comparison would be the pre-war Gibson flathead market. Granadas have typically been in the Loar price range, if not higher for some. I know almost nothing about banjos though. Anybody...

    Re: Loars at Carterís

    Interesting isn’t it? The overall mandolin market seems to be trending up due to short supply yet Loars and Ferns seem to be dropping significantly. I don’t think the younger generation of players...

    Re: My MAS is cured.

    Being satisfied with what you have and being cured of MAS are two very different things. I’ve had my A5 for over 13 years and my F5 for 7-ish now. But when I was in Nashville recently I went to...
