Has anyone had to move any frets on their vintage Gibson or Loar mandolins?
Wanting some elaboration on something a performer said in Vintage Guitar magazine...
this is what they said :
Loar-period mandolins have a very flat second fret and most of the people that make copies of those mandolins have used the scale off of ’em. A lot of the earlier copiers, copied that same bad scale. I’ve had the frets moved on a couple of mandolins.
and this is the link where they said it :
Wondering how often this is a problem on old mandolins; personally, I haven't seen as many of them as a professional luthier or performer would have seen.
