  2. Re: A Strad-O-Lin almost identical to mine

    If it's as good as Sue's SOL, and I believe it is very similar, it should be one of the good ones, even if it is a laminated back. I had a solid top / laminated back & sides Orphrum branded SOL that...
  3. Re: A Strad-O-Lin almost identical to mine

    Got it! Paid one dollar and fifty one cents more than Sue did for her Clarence White Model.

    Sue, I overpaid, :crying: and I'd do it again, but I didn't get the super cool stairstep fretboard...

    Re: Don't Lament -- "The One That Got Away"

    As a general rule, I could agree with that. But, when you get into serious collecting (or accumulating, or hoarding, or whatever ya wanna call it), not quite as true. Over the past few years, I've...

    Tale of the Burgin and the Phoenix

    Last week I finally decided that I was too lazy (and getting perhaps a bit older lol) to continue down the rabbit hole of learning the octave mandolin. My beloved Burgin Shanghai needed to go to a...

    Re: "Lost Soul Behind Bars" - NMC

    Wow. These guys are good. A very well written article too. I grew up in Detroit with the Motown Soul scene and IMHO, this stuff is just a good. I have a friend that teaches violin in a Minnesota...
  13. Re: The Dilemma of Motivation, Attention Span, and Practice Regim

    I see there are two books called Chop Wood Carry Water. Its this one I read, many years ago. I see now another one, different author, but similar message. Spiritual fulfilment in everyday activities,...
  14. Re: The Dilemma of Motivation, Attention Span, and Practice Regim

    Great advice from folks. I think, however, there is one thing to add.

    I think it kind of gets in the way to think of practicing as an activity whose purpose is the improvement of a different...
  15. Re: A Strad-O-Lin almost identical to mine

    The SOL Jake Wildwood has listed is Sue Rieter's. Jake did the set up on Sue's SOL and took (really great) pictures. Jake is in agreement with you that this model "probably" has a laminated back....

    Sue, those rosewood bridges like the one on eBay are good quality items. I have one on my best Regal mandolin made in 1939 which I assume is a replacement. I think Kay also used them in the 60s for a...
