    Re: Mia Mandolins in Greenbrier, Arkansas.

    My pal just bought the Mia mandola from the classifieds ... I hope to have a look at it when it arrives. Sound clips on her site seem promising.

    Re: Goodwill Gibson

    It hit $1900 ... I would say that is a little below market, so it could be a decent buy if there is nothing wrong with it. On the other hand, there's not a lot of room for error if there turns out to...

    Well, as it turns out ...

    It really is a MandoStrat.

    it has an "Original Contour Body" sticker on the headstock, which is part of what made me think it might be vintage. That sticker was used...

    Re: Help Identifying Gibson Mandolin

    Yep, those aluminum bridge saddles were used for only about a year starting in 1921. They are a rare find, especially with both of the retaining nuts still present.

    I might have to make do with a bottle of Matryoshka stout from Fort George Brewery, or maybe another Kalinov tarragon lemonade, but I'll definitely kick up my heels one way or another.

    We'll find out. It's possible that the photos were just placeholders and what I'll get is an actual Mando-Strat ... but I'll be OK if that happens. The point is that I paid a Mando-Strat price for...

    Will look into it, but somehow I've managed to make it this far in life without owing a socket wrench. I might have to spring for a whole set of sockets to get the right one.

    Weird nut on Planet tuners

    So the vintage Planet tuners on my National Triolian tenor are becoming unreliable, and I resolve to replace them with new Rickards.

    Not sure what the label said, but the mandolin is from the Kay Co. (formerly Stromberg-Voisinet) in Chicago.
