    Re: Loar K-5 Mandocello

    Spruce has a Paul Duff K5 that's pretty cool. I remember trying out Petri Hakala's mandocello before he bought it ... I think it's a Fletcher Brock? I drool over a Roger Bacorn K5 that belongs to...

    Re: Custom mandolin Info

    You've easily got $40K or more worth of instruments here. Definitely worth the drive to consign it all.

    Re: Is this an A-2Z?

    I question the seller's date of 1924. You don't see the inlaid logo going straight across the headstock like that until 1928 or so.

    Re: Old photo(s) with mandolin

    Yeah, the instruments and the way the jackets and shirts are buttoned all suggest a flopped photo. Here's a corrected version.

    I can tell you haven't watched Stevie's Facebook videos. Current owner's dad played it in a mandolin orchestra; it's been in storage for 50 years.
  9. Previously unknown Loar K5 Gibson mandocello shows up!

    Re: For those who love changing strings

    I have an earlier eBay harp mandolin by the same builder. It's sort of the MidMo/Big Muddy of harp mandolins: good quality build with an emphasis on simplicity. The tone is all right although I...
  11. Re: Never Returned (Stolen) Brilliantone Mandocello

    The tailpiece in David's photo is a replacement tailpiece by Gary Price. These were 1-piece cast, and modeled after banjo tailpieces. I had one on a mandolin for a while, but since the string ends...
  12. Re: Another misidentified Gibson mandola at Guitar Center

    I've never used store-to-store, but I'm pretty sure you have to buy an instrument and pay for the shipping to get it shipped anywhere.

    It's possible that someone added binding to the back and...

    Re: First generation ZETA mandolin

    The first Zeta e-mando dates from the company's Bay Area days and to all appearances is just an Asian factory F style with a pickup.

    Ha!

    The story is, I bought the last few JBoviers from Jeff Cowherd, Andrew set them up and we rebranded them with Jeff's permission. I didn't make anything here except for the logo.
