  1. Re: 1920ish Martin built? For S.S. Stewart

    I might as well throw this out there too. I think it was built closer to 00 than 20.
  2. Re: Geico commercial with basketball player

    I'm not sure but this was discussed years ago here. You might find it in there.
  3. Re: 1920ish Martin built? For S.S. Stewart

    I merged these two threads.
  4. Re: 1920ish Martin built? For S.S. Stewart

    To affirm what rcc56 said above, I've never seen an instrument made by Martin for another company that didn't have the Martin stamp on it someplace visible.
  5. Re: Any atheist / agnostic Bluegrasser's out there?

    I'm not here to have that discussion but if you'd like to find like minded folks why not take a trip over to Facebook and create a group. You'll find like minded folks. Since you're not looking to...
  6. Re: Any atheist / agnostic Bluegrasser's out there?

    We actually have a set of Posting Guidelines that we operate under in this forum to avoid the "vitriol" that you seem to be finding.



    The thread subject pretty much takes you into that realm.

    Re: A Style in case for F style

    The Calton case that my F5G sits in fits a modern A style perfectly.

    Re: Headstock drilling jig.

    I always keep birch plywood cutoffs. My problem wasn't really rigidity it was keeping the table top flat. It started out that way, I just messed that up trying to get it even with the frame. I just...

    Re: Information on this Mandolin

    The bridge did not "come off". They are not glued on. They are floating and held on by the strings.
  10. Re: Any info on this mandolin would be appreciated

    It was most likely made in China (Asian for sure). The brand name means very little as this instrument is imported into the US as well under dozens of brand names. If it's setup well by the shop it...

    Re: Where’s the easy-does-it method?

    Dave is quite the character. It was an enjoyable day we spent there and he did some great work. I got caught in a snow storm on a business trip to Buffalo many years ago. It cured me from going up...

  14. Re: Kalamazoo KM 11 - What's the current street price?

    My experience with them is the same as Mick's. I've owned two. I wouldn't pay that much for one but I'd love to have either one of them back.

    Re: Where’s the easy-does-it method?

    I went there on purpose. It was the day before Halloween 2004. The directions on his website at the time were great. They said "Go north". That was all. I remember driving up The New York Throughway...

    Re: Where’s the easy-does-it method?

    David Nichols at Custom Pearl Inlay in Malone, New York sells a DVD that is probably the fastest way of getting something going on the mandolin I've seen. It's not the end all be all but it's a great...

  19. Re: Where can I get a hard case for a lefthanded f style mandolin

    Then there is this. Reading the comments someone has stated they put an F style in it and it appears to be a mirror image on each side.

  20. Re: Where can I get a hard case for a lefthanded f style mandolin

    In giving this some more thought I'd suggest just contacting Dennis at The Mandolin Store and asking if he could order one from Eastman.
  21. Re: Where can I get a hard case for a lefthanded f style mandolin

    My Calton would take a lefty but that's a lot of money. I have an older Breedlove case that might but I'm not sure if the body size be right. My suggestion would be to contact Eastman and see if they...

    Re: 1931 Fern

    It will actually discolor the case and the mandolin if allowed to stay there. Then again, there is always the possibility of it simply catching fire. The pickguard needs to be put someplace where it...

    Re: New Project - Guy Clark Cover

    Guy was a guitar builder and his personal life was well known as well. I always figured he was talking about wood or ganja and I never gave it much thought.

    Re: New Project - Guy Clark Cover

    Nice. The first time I heard that song was in 1975 in my apartment up off NE 70th and Halsey when station KINK did their album preview of the first Guy Clark album. I'm sure I have the cassette I...
