    Re: Neck joint on Martin bowlback?

    I would guess that it would be a conical block with some sort of dovetail. I know inexpensive American bowlbacks often had neck and conical block as one piece but I highly doubt that Martín would do...

    Re: Neck joint on Martin bowlback?

    Whoops! I am guessing that they changed their neck joints from 1899. I looked in my two-volume Martín book but they don;t Bert that far down to the granular luthiers level. Sorry. Ate worst you could...

    Re: Neck joint on Martin bowlback?

    Take a look at this article about a broken 1899 Martin bowlback style 5 by Michael Simmons on Fretboard Journal site. Should give you some idea of what the neck joint looks like. What year is the one...

    Re: What is a method?

    Many of the mandolin methods, even ones published today derive from violin methods and adapt these exercises, etudes, etc. for a plectrum instrument tuned the same as a violin. Obviously they leave...

    That is funny... I missed this thread altogether. I had the same message conversation with the seller and we were about to make arrangements to meet since she was about a 40 minute drive for me. Then...

    Re: Gibson F2 and F4. Difference in sound ?

    I agree with my wise colleagues' comments above. However, IMHO the mandolins made circa 1921 of any Gibsons seem to be consistent and well-made. So, if you are looking to buy remotely you might...

    Re: The Bulas mandolin

    Here's another video of Karolina playing "Worried Man Blues" on another Bulas instrument. Unique design, too—sort of a modernized lump scroll. Here's the Bulas web site: https://bulas.pl/

  12. Re: Laberte et Magnié mandolin of uncertain vintage

    I do have a few Laberte catalogues in my files but the latest one is from 1919. They do mention Carmencita models in all of the catalogs but it is hard to find out whether those were just sold in...

    Re: 1898 Martin Style 6. What should I do?

    That sounds like a very good deal. 1940s Gibsons and Martins prices are going quite high these days. I sold a 48 LG2 last year and I see the same guitar is offered for considerably more. To get that...
  17. Re: Laberte et Magnié mandolin of uncertain vintage

    Are you sure about that? I would think it unusual to use laminated wood back in the 1930s and my guess is that it might be cheaper to use solid woods since there is less labor involved. I do know...

    This '81 1N believe it or not is on ShopGoodWill.com and looks AFAIK to be in good condition. Lots of interest in it though and might sell for close to retail. https://shopgoodwill.com/item/148941667
