    Re: Beware this Fender FM60E at Guitar Center

    This instrument sold shortly after I posted it, but now I see it's back up for sale at the same store where I returned it...

    Can we set up a Kickstarter to buy the OP some punctuation marks?

  5. Re: Comments on the Value of Gibson A4 Mandolin with hard case

    The listing price and the actual sale price aren't necessarily the same thing. $4K for a Sheraton brown A2 is far above market, so if someone paid that amount, it was only due to the thing being so...
  6. Re: Comments on the Value of Gibson A4 Mandolin with hard case

    Somewhere between 2K and 3K.

    If I can't have Handels on an A4 I would prefer to get a truss rod and adjustable bridge. This one is an in-betweener with none of those features, so at least to me...

    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.

  9. Re: A project H2 mandola: decent in front, horror show in the bac

    It might be worth taking on as a project if the price doesn't go any higher. What do you think is going on with the pickguard?

    Re: Is this really a Gibson?

    It would be nice if Ron could get people in the background to shut up while he's making demo videos.
  13. Re: Previously unknown Loar K5 Gibson mandocello shows up!

    I generally go 70-46-32-20 on the Andersen mandocello; it has a truss rod, but then again, so does the K5. Perhaps I should lighten up.

    I don't think Stevie's going to keep the K5; it's a...

    Re: Is this really a Gibson?

    Yep, Ron Hyde has rebuilt a number of basket-case old Gibsons and sold them on eBay. He's not at all concerned with preserving "originality." This fits perfectly.
  18. Re: Previously unknown Loar K5 Gibson mandocello shows up!

    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.
  19. Re: Dose anyone know anything about this mandolin or its value

    Oh, I dunno, I can go to a bluegrass festival and get half a dozen band stickers and put them on my mandolin case. It wouldn't mean anything.

    It's an unusual mandolin in some respects ... I like...
  20. Re: Previously unknown Loar K5 Gibson mandocello shows up!

    Stevie is well connected within the world of acoustic instruments and knew exactly who to call to get the information he needed .

    There are plenty of "guitar shops" that would have screwed this...

    Re: 3-point Gibson conversion from 1972 on eBay

    That's a good question. I don't know if Gibson was already using birch for backs during this era or not.

    The seller says something about not wanting to mention a certain type of wood for fear of...

    Re: How About This One?

    I'd say Stromberg-Voisinet/Kay factory rather than Regal.

    But it's had some modifications done; that headstock has been worked on a good deal. As you note, those aren't the original tuners and...
