    Re: Prettiest A model I have seen in a while

    Looks like another one with tortoise binding has just been posted at The Music Emporium. These are beautiful mandolins.

    The ad is still active and not marked as sold. However, you may know something we don't. :)

  3. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    That is beautiful. Looks like it has the small neck profile as well. I'm finding my RSDMM neck is something that's helping my playing and feels very comfortable for me. Can't wait to see other...
  4. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    Daryl, it's my understanding that the distressing done back in the day affected the tone tremendously. That process was never really fully discussed as to what was done and how it was completed, but...
  5. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    That looks awesome, do you have any other photos? I'd love to see the back, sides and headstock.
  6. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    Did Ricky happen to say what number that was? I'm assuming #1, but I've yet to find any information on #3 in the early RSDMM as well.
  7. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    Dem, I'll keep you in mind, but I think this one has found a permanent home. :)
  8. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    This one is only signed by Ricky Skaggs. From what I was told, this one was purchased new in 2007 and placed in a collection until recently when the owner decided to sell off some of his instruments....
  9. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    To my ear, it sounds fantastic. This mandolin was purchased new in 2007 and then promptly placed in a collection, so it hasn't had much play time. However, I'll change that. :) It'll get played every...
  10. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    The highest number I have been able to verify is #27. I'm working on compiling a list of known RSDMM with pictures and general information if available. So far I have some information on #2, #4, #5,...
  11. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    Thanks Kevin. I guess the neck would be an individual thing. I'll say it's the thinnest neck I've played and at first, I was like 50/50 if I liked it or not. However, after a few days, it really...

    Charles, please update your Facebook registry to include #6 if you like.

    I have been wanting a Gibson Distressed mandolin for some time and just waiting on the right one to come along. I know this is not the regular Distressed model, but the Ricky Skaggs Distressed. As...

    Re: 99' F5 Fern info

    You are correct, based on that serial number, it was made 05/01/1998 and was the 5th one signed/labeled that day.
  16. Re: 2020 X-Series -- The new Sorensen Sprite 2X Two-Point

    Nice looking mandolins Steve. What type neck joint to you utilize in your builds? Also, do you use hide glue?
  17. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Jim Hilburn, I've noticed you being very interested in and offering a lot of commentary on this thread. I'd like to ask you, from your point of view, who would you give credit for the design and...
  18. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    What you say is generically correct. However, I think to be totally correct, you should add "What Gibson researched, tested, innovated, designed and patented back in the '20's is what most people...
  19. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    No matter which side of this issue you think is right, I think there's a couple points we need to consider before drawing to many conclusions.

    Let's consider, does Gibson own this IP and these...

    Re: Thomastiks on a Collings MT?

    I think the string gauges are the same as J74's but tension about the same.

    Martin Monel's:
    Gauges: 11-15-26-40
    Tension: 186.9

    D'Addario's:
    Gauges: 11-15-26-40
    Tension: 180.7

    Re: Thomastiks on a Collings MT?

    Caleb, just wanted to give you an idea of what I've tried on my MT2V torrefied. I put some of the new Martin monel strings on and simply love the tone and feel. If you are experimenting with strings,...
  22. Re: mandolin comparison of three high class F 5 mandolins

    Could be the strings, but #2 sounds "jangly" to me and not quite the texture and soul I hear in #3. I also like #1. It has nice tone and character. My picks would be in this order: #3, #1, #2.
  23. Re: New Collings MT2-V Torrefied with Martin Monel Strings

    Wouldn't the MP3 have to reside on the Soundcloud website for this tag to work properly and stream the audio from the message link?
  24. Re: New Collings MT2-V Torrefied with Martin Monel Strings

    I wonder if there's a tag for the mp3 attachment that makes the file stream? I didn't see one, which would correct the issue of having to download it first. It should then play on any device if so....
  25. New Collings MT2-V Torrefied with Martin Monel Strings

    After analysis paralysis and an exhaustive hunt, I finally found a fantastic Collings MT2-V with torrefied Adirondack top. I have to say this is one of the finest mandolins I've had the pleasure to...
