    Re: What to pay for an old Gibson

    No kidding! :disbelief: But consider the alternative ... :whistling:

    Thankfully, I have mandolins. :mandosmiley:

    Re: What to pay for an old Gibson

    Well, I'm turning 70 soon. That's pretty old. The 50s weren't too bad a period for Gibsons, though most people prefer the teens and 20s. That said, I have pretty good tone and have worn fairly well...

    Yeah, but ... This is this, and those are those. I'm not "making you choose" between anything. :confused: This is a pretty specific topic, project, even. There are plenty of threads for those and...

    Re: listing of rock songs w/mando

    Thanks for that - I guess. I didn't see the time index in your post so I sludged through nearly three minutes of Wishbone Ash to hear mandolin. I'll never get that time back. :crying: Elton John has...

    Not for nothing, but I don't see where you've shared your story. Come on now! Tell us about what inspired you so.

    Re: What to pay for an old Gibson

    Looks nice. But only one picture? Words fail to convey how much I mistrust ads like that. Full disclosure, please.
  7. Re: Holding on to your personal Holy Grail mandolin

    If my eyes do not deceive me, I count four Heidens and one Gibson. :disbelief: I'm a little surprised. Now, I've heard and seen a lot of good things said about Heidens, but nowhere near anything like...
  8. Re: Beware this Fender FM60E at Guitar Center

    Actually, nope. Maybe that was their first instinct - relist - but someone nixed it; it's gone. Or re-relisted elsewhere. But that link is kaput.

    Re: Double-sided, double-necked violin

    So, Jo, do you think you could build a good-sounding one of these? You certainly have some remarkable skills and imaginative design capabilities. Or do you only make fretted instruments? :confused:

    Re: Randy Wood Two-Point at Carter's

    Is it purty? - Yep.

    Does it sound purty? - I'll bet.

    Does it sound "$50,000 worth" of purty? - Well ... :whistling:

    Will it make somebody happy to own it and play it? - I'll bet.

    Will...

    Re: My banjo killer (is not a mandolin)

    Yes, sir. Truth. I have played with some fine pickers who knew what they were doing with their instruments and how to play nice with others. I've also played with some others, and the less said about...

    Well, it happened again - "Mandolin" appeared as a clue on Jeopardy! today. What sets this apart from most of its appearances on the show is the contestant guessed right! :disbelief: Maybe that's...

    Really? They're pretty easy to wound - their skins are quite vulnerable - which most of the time is good enough. :whistling: But yeah, perhaps actually killing them ... They do seem to propagate all...
  15. Re: Another misidentified Gibson mandola at Guitar Center

    Thanks for the insights - learning stuff I never knew. So then, it's possible they could sell the same instrument again and again, and as long as it kept getting returned, they'd make some money on...

    Been following this with some amusement, curiosity, and an ever-present willingness to learn. I think I've got it all, except one thing: the $18. You said that was for "shipping from San Bernardino...

    My banjo killer is a mandolin! :) It's a teens Gibson A, and holy wow it's got some volume. Actually, I've got two of them - one's in the shop, and we should be reuniting in a month or so - and both...
