  1. Re: RSW's Jerry Rosa & The Mysterious Sam Bush Upside-Down Truss

    The title is in part clickbait to get views and also a little bit of bragging rights. I think that is pretty common to want to be the guy who was able to fix what the others weren't able to.

    Re: Heartbreak Hotel

    Overall, I'd say you got lucky, considering the fall.

    Given, the location of the strap button, you could dangle a fluffy feather boa, which should conceal most of the damage. (I know, I know -- I...

    Re: Do you name your instruments?

    I guess it would be pointless for me to mention this question gets asked every year on this forum (with many of the same responses by the same people, year after year!) I was going to mention the tv...

    Re: Raising 12th fret, worth it?

    Re: 1959 Sorkin/Stradolin Catalogue Pages

    Hi Mike, I know we have seen Strad-O-Lin's from the mid-30's with a date stamp inside on this forum. Have we ever seen one from the 20's with a date stamp? Just curious.

    Re: 1912 Gibson A

    Nice find! I do get a chill when I see an instrument leaned against a chair, (or a couch, wall, or amp,) no matter how briefly -- probably just for the photo, I'm guessing.

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    FWIW, I've been an eBay member for over 20 years with over 4,000 transactions and in every case sellers have been basically honest and fair -- until this year for some reason! Not sure why. This...

    Re: Ferrules for a Kalamazoo KM-11

    I was actually suggesting using the originals and not enlarging the existing holes. I don't see any need to remove wood that has been there for 90 years.

    Re: Ferrules for a Kalamazoo KM-11

    I'm sure a repairman somewhere has what you need in a parts bin. Maybe they will see this and contact you.

    I would keep the originals and improvise on the other three in the meantime with...

    Ah yes, back when a dollar was really a dollar! Good value for the money.

    About 35 years ago I found a Carson Robinson guitar at a flea market for $10. It needed some setup, so I took it to the...
