    Re: Howe-Orme mandolin video

    Honestly, it did not seem like it would be up my alley. My interest lies pretty much in Bluegrass, Gibson Loar f5s and all things Loar-like.

    I watched your video though and found it fascinating....

    Re: Distressed Mandolin and Regular Playing

    +1 to that. How did we ever get to the point where "Authentic 1939" means anything but.?.

    Two pretty significant fish.

    Not sure what you're missing, but there's 27 years worth of discussion on every conceivable side of that debate lying somewhere in the Cafe archives. Enjoy!

    Re: Distressed Mandolin and Regular Playing

    Not a big Eastman fan here, and I'm ambivalent re the whole 'relic-ing' thing. I have to say though that you did a really nice job on that 315 Doug.

    Re: Distressed Mandolin and Regular Playing

    That really is a shame. Like borrowing someone's car, taking it off-road and beating the snot out of it because it's your 'style' of driving.

    That was a nice way to start out the morning. Thanks.
  8. Re: 1982 F-5 Fern Mandolin Handcrafted by Doug McKee

    I looked up and down the interweb and like Russ, the only info I could find re Doug Mckee are the words posted here on this forum by Jim Hilburn. Sounds like Doug started in the early '70s building...

    Welcome to the Cafe Forum. As another guy who started this adventure in his early 50s, the first thing that comes to mind is this...

    C'mon Bernie... he has his own luthier. It must be legit.

    Re: The joys of autocorrect

    My job takes me to Florida frequently. I try to text my wife to let her know whichever city I'm headed for the evening.
    Can't count how many times 'Tampa' has been corrected to a certain drugstore...
  12. Re: Monteleone F5 - #4 of his original 10 Loar copies

    Really happy to see that there is an accepted way to sell that instrument here. Yeah, the back may be a bit plain but I'll bet it's a great mandolin.
    And it's a legit part of mandolin history.

    All those disagreeing people with their strong opinions may have simply taken your original post (see excerpt below) at face value.
  16. Re: Gilchrist Using The Tone Traveler On Mike Compton's Mandolin

    This has been an interesting discussion with good arguments on both sides... 'provable' (valid evidence) or not. No dog in this hunt here.



    You're probably right, but 'seems' seems to be the...
  17. Re: Gilchrist Using The Tone Traveler On Mike Compton's Mandolin

    Yes sir... I am quite aware of that.
    I considered adding a ;) to my post, but didn't really think it was necessary in this case.
  18. Re: Gilchrist Using The Tone Traveler On Mike Compton's Mandolin

    Absolutely; a universal truth. But you'll have to admit, it can sometimes lead to the object really opening up.

    As my old buddy Ivan used to say... If you want more punch, try DR MD-11s and a Primetone pick.

    I see this one from time to time but don't know if it's for sale.

    Not an 'a' style so I guess it can't be the one!

    Re: Better than a Loar??

    Don't know how great it sounds and don't know what it's worth, but it seems to me like it would hurt Gibson's feelings to have their thoughtful and generous 'gift' put up for sale.
    But, maybe it's...

    Re: Tunes in "F"

    Although some folks say it's in Dm, ol' Bill's Lonesome Moonlight Waltz is in the key of F.

  24. Re: Holding on to your personal Holy Grail mandolin

    The title of this thread seems to suggest that a "Holy Grail" mandolin is one that you hold on to. The first post however suggests that finding that special mandolin results in "no more MAS". Two...

    It does appear to be somewhat questionable. Just go to the 'About Us' page on the website. If that doesn't raise a few red flags, I don't know what would.
