    Ryland Cooder. Really like his version of Seneca Square Dance, aka Waitin' for the Federals. A simple tune, well expressed
  2. Re: Bill Monroe talks about his Lloyd Loar in an interview

    The damage was in late 1985, and the return to WSM was in February 1986, I believe. $5K for a Loar would have been a really nice deal. I think the asking prices were upwards of $40K at that time....

    I have had J74s or EXP74s on my 1913 F2 for many years, with no deleterious effects on the instrument. It has always been a stable instrument; I might not want to put those same strings on a more...

    Re: Vintage Case Handles

    Old handles for Singer sewing machine cases from those periods are a good match for the old cases you have. Usually don't have the wear that a music case would have

    Re: Larger frets for 1920 Gibson A-4

    My "A" snakehead with A2Z trimmings. Note the black trim internal to the white binding on the bass side (which is obscured where the black face finish is intact)
  15. Re: What are your favorite albums featuring mandolin?

    Camptown by Joe Craven (1995). To say he is a multi-instrumentalist would be an understatement

    Re: Another Ashokan and Turkey in the Straw

    The 'black line' I referred to is also binding material on mine. Bad choice of words.

    Re: Another Ashokan and Turkey in the Straw

    Nice playing. Fantastic sound. Does your snake have a thin black line along the inner margin of the white top binding? It looks like it does. There has been a thread recently stating that the inner...
