    Re: 30's Oval Hole Gibson - Model?

    No headstock inlay or bound fingerboard. Probably not an A4. FON would be helpful.

    Good selection of notes, great tone & feel in the groove. And great interview.
  3. Re: When did you realize mandolin was your primary instrument?

    Like so many others, guitar was my main instrument after giving up violin at age 14. I played semi-pro until life got in the way, but always played guitar. First picked up a mandolin and pedal...

    Re: New owner of Pomeroy #243 Oval Hole

    Love the headstock scroll - different than most scrolls seen around here!
  8. Re: PETER GREEN (Fleetwood Mac) R.I.P. no manod

    For me, that line up was preferable to the later poppy version that really hit it big. Santana later had a big hit with Green's "Black Magic Woman"; most people have never heard the Peter Green...

    Re: CGDA tuning on Mandolin?

    I've got an old National that has a slightly longer scale than standard for a mandolin and tune it with single mandola strings CGDA, similar to Johnny Gimble. It's a hoot to play and bend strings. ...

    Re: Strap Recommendation for A-style

    A long leather shoe string - either as a single strip or DIY braided. Has worked on all my mandolins.
  11. Re: How did the "curl" on the mandolin body evolve?

    Big fan of pre Loar oval holes (A and F), Loar era instruments (oval or FF holes) - and have owned a few (but not the Holy Grail). Despite the management over the past 20 + years, the mandolin...

    Re: NMD Late 70's Ibanez 524?

    Hopefully, you'll spend more time playing it than looking at it! The tragedy of those special mandolins with visually astounding backs and workmanship is that we only get to see them when we put...

    Re: If you are a fan of block inlays.....

    TME sure knows how to post slightly pornographic pictures of instruments. That is a cute blonde and the split block inlays take it over the top. MAS never dies.

    Re: Describe your MAS progression
