    Re: Bowl Back Mandolin needing some TLC

    Pictures would be a help. It could be as. simple as a section of binding that has degraded over time or the top separating from the bowl.

    Re: Goodwill Gibson A

    Re: Refinishing a Flatiron F5?

    You may destroy much of the value but done properly you won't destroy the instrument. It is crucial to know what kind of finish you have to determine the best way to remove the finish. I do tend to...

    Re: Can you teach musicality?

    Yes you can teach musicality. The people we think of as having it naturally still learned it from their environment. Something as simple as staying on the beat is part of musicality. If you get a...
  10. Re: Seeking vintage tenor guitar neck for a project

    How likely are you to get a neck that fits the existing neck pocket? It may be easier just to make one.

    That truly sucks. Check Ebay, the police call it America's Fence.
  12. Re: why are some chords for guitar not listed in chord books for

    I made up a quick music theory primer for a song writing group I belong to. If you PM me your email, I will send you a copy. This is an open to anybody on Mandolin Cafe. Be aware it is very basic.
  13. Re: Meet Marc Orleans - Brooklyn based busking mandolin player

    Sorry to hear about this. I am living in Brooklyn now, though currently in Vermont. I am pretty sure the dinning scene in NYC will come back. It will be different but it will come back

  17. Re: Talk me out of replacing an ABS nut with a bone nut

    I agree that a properly cut nut is more impartant than the material. Also the nut will only impac the sound of open strings, not that open string sound isn't important.

    Re: Electric Mandolin Build Help?

    I never thought of the double strings increasing sustain, and don't see how they would. They do increase volume.

    Re: Describe your MAS progression

    Found a mandolin in a junk shop. They thought it was broken because the bridge wasn't on it. The bridge was in the case. Bought it for $30. A luthier friend helped me fit the bridge. That was...
  20. Re: why are some chords for guitar not listed in chord books for

    To keep it simple, guitars have six notes available; mandolins four. So anything more complicated than a chord 7th (and with some 7th chords) requires you to leave out at least one note. The order...

    Re: Electric Mandolin Build Help?

    I am a bit of a contrarian here. I think part of the sound of a mandolin is the double strings. I do like the idea of an octave simply because they aren't as common. It wouldn't be something you...

    Re: Are there any good vintage noname mandolins ?

    There are definitely good no-name mandolins out there. The problem is since they are less well known names or unlabeled, it is difficult to recommend specific ones to you. Take some time to learn...
  25. Re: 1957 Fender Mandocaster Fingerboard Cleanup?

    I always go with the most gentle first. So try a slightly damp rag. If that doesn't cut it, a rage slightly dampened with Naptha. For tough spots use a toothbrush to scrub. For built up crud,use...
