    Re: Crestline 'Mandolin'?

    There is a ton of bad information online about Crestline online but I think this is correct:



    These mandolins were imported under dozens of brand names. As far as setup goes Cafe member Rob...

    Re: 2013 Gibson Fern Tuners

    I replaced the silver ones on my 2005 F5G with Waverly's. These Gibson Grover's are excellent tuners and I wish they still made them. The A style tuners actually showed up new on eBay a few years...

    Re: 2013 Gibson Fern Tuners

    Those are Gibson Grover tuners that were manufactured only for Gibson. They were made to be drop in replacements for the Schaller's that Gibson had been using. They are normal modern post spacing,...

  6. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    No need to apologize, this comes up every now and again. It's generally entertaining.

    Re: Hand Surgery

    I haven't had to do a hand yet but I did have a shoulder done that slowed me down quite a bit. Here's hoping you recover quickly and do the physical therapy. They have ways of getting things moving...

    It has it's own page. I love thread drift. :)

    That was mentioned and briefly explained in the second reply to your original post.

    Re: Pick Hold Issues

    As long as you don't mind losing your face, yes. By the way, no Gorilla's were harmed when harvesting this product.

    Re: Pick Hold Issues

    You eventually get the hang of it but in the meantime try some Gorilla Snot (yes, that's a real name). It's made to assist with holding picks and drumsticks. I keep some in my case for the days that...
  12. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    Second the nomination.

    Also agree with looking for logic in Gibson naming conventions is more than problematic. You just have to look at the lump scroll and two point mandolins of the 60's and...
  13. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    Actually the complete corrected list already exists someplace on the Cafe, I just haven't had the time to look for it.

    I'm sure Paul would have appreciated that. He left us too soon.

    Re: Advanced Search---Help Please

    Go to Google.com and search using this line:

    You'll most likely find what you're looking for.

    If all you want are images click on Images on the Google...

    Allen, what took you so long? :)

    I knew you'd come through.

    I finally found this. The late Paul Hostetter's possible explanation for why U = Harp Guitar.
  17. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    Perhaps we are looking for the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I do think it was about the math for Orville though. I do assume (again with no proof) that it was his first design, second...
  18. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    Those are late comers. :)

    I thought Martin designated the Dreadnought and I think that was a nickname for a design they built for Ditson. Gibson built them later. There's a list here someplace of...
  19. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    Orville thought enough of it to feature it on his label as did Gibson but the company apparently never made one
  20. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    I figured that if Orville's first model was designated the A style and eventually he got to the F style, what happened to B, C, D, and E? If in fact that was how this came to be and there is nothing...
  21. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    You were told wrong. There's nothing to support that in any Gibson documentation. Up until the electric guitar age the only thing that was ever labeled Florentine was a banjo with scenes from Venice...
  22. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    I think that A stood for A and F stood for F. It wasn't until Gibson got into the banjo manufacturing that they had any letters that meant anything other than a model designation. RB, TB, GB, MB,...
  23. Re: got a live one here folks, and he is coming in hot

    It's apparently one of these.
  24. Re: Allen tailpiece - does the felt mute the sound or not?

    It stops the harmonics and has nothing to do with muting the sound. Gibson mandolins have come with a piece of felt or leather for 100 years.
