  1. Re: Campanella, Red Diamond, Northfield, Collings experience

    Tim, I to am a fan of Collings MT2-V mandolins. I have had two. I traded one in on a Derrington era 2001 Gibson Master Model. I love the sound of the MM. I also have another 2004 MM as well as a 2007...

    Re: Dennis Vance receives double transplant

    Thanks very much Scott. Dennis is a vital part of our community and "mandolin cafe family". Your frequent updates on his progress is appreciated. I'm continuing to think of Dennis and pray for his...
  3. Re: Lost in the Builders looking for a McClanahan Tone

    Just be prepared, a huge part of the tone you're falling in love with is coming from the player.

    Re: diminished value from a repair?

    That's really not what I would consider "structural". In my mind, structural would be top crack, side crack, neck snap or break at the nut, etc. I think a repair on this won't devalue your mandolin...
  5. Re: Campanella two-point (How to make an accent on due?)

    I think those at The Music Emporium that sold for that price were special Anniversary models and therefore carried a premium above the standard models. Just my thought and I could be completely...

    Re: Northfield F5S On the Way

    Kevin, I'm just curious. You say it was buzzing and a reputable luthier said it had a twisted neck. Has this all been corrected?

    Re: Shout out to Collings

    My opinion, but Monel's tone down some the brightness on my MT2 Torrefied Top and make it sound awesome with a good easy playing feel. On my MT2V, all torrefied, J74's some to be the preferred tone...

    Re: Shout out to Collings

    My opinion, but Collings has it going on right now. I have a 2018 MT2 Adirondack Torrefied Top with monel strings and it is a wonderful playing and sounding mandolin. I also have a 2019 MT2V all...
  9. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Jan, you say it's not opinion but fact and scientifically measurable, can you point us to the scientific research and fact sheets of this information you'r talking about?
  10. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    That's exactly what I'm talking about. The scrolls are just different and to my eye look way to open in the scroll area. Not saying they don't sound as good because all I've played sounded nice, but...
  11. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I'll preface this post with I'm a huge Gibson fan and love all things Gibson. However, my favorite modern Gibsons are from 2000 through 2007. I've played some after 2007 and they do sound good and...

    Re: Prettiest A model I have seen in a while

    Looks like another one with tortoise binding has just been posted at The Music Emporium. These are beautiful mandolins.

  14. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    That is beautiful. Looks like it has the small neck profile as well. I'm finding my RSDMM neck is something that's helping my playing and feels very comfortable for me. Can't wait to see other...
  15. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    Daryl, it's my understanding that the distressing done back in the day affected the tone tremendously. That process was never really fully discussed as to what was done and how it was completed, but...
  16. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    That looks awesome, do you have any other photos? I'd love to see the back, sides and headstock.
  17. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    Did Ricky happen to say what number that was? I'm assuming #1, but I've yet to find any information on #3 in the early RSDMM as well.
  18. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    Dem, I'll keep you in mind, but I think this one has found a permanent home. :)
  19. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    This one is only signed by Ricky Skaggs. From what I was told, this one was purchased new in 2007 and placed in a collection until recently when the owner decided to sell off some of his instruments....
  20. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    To my ear, it sounds fantastic. This mandolin was purchased new in 2007 and then promptly placed in a collection, so it hasn't had much play time. However, I'll change that. :) It'll get played every...
  21. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    The highest number I have been able to verify is #27. I'm working on compiling a list of known RSDMM with pictures and general information if available. So far I have some information on #2, #4, #5,...
  22. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    Thanks Kevin. I guess the neck would be an individual thing. I'll say it's the thinnest neck I've played and at first, I was like 50/50 if I liked it or not. However, after a few days, it really...

  25. Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    I have been wanting a Gibson Distressed mandolin for some time and just waiting on the right one to come along. I know this is not the regular Distressed model, but the Ricky Skaggs Distressed. As...
