    Re: Fender 5 string electric mando

    I think that a good solution would be to buy a set of Kluson 6 in line guitar tuners and use those, minus one.

    Re: Fender 5 string electric mando

    Here's what a single looks like. You're going to have to find one for the low E string, because you need the full flange on the back end.

    Re: Fender 5 string electric mando

    They're not really "connected", they're just right next to each other, and share a common screw in the middle. You can take one off and replace it with a standard Kluson tuner from a "six on a side"...

    It's like this one, Right? Seeing a picture of the back of the peghead would be a big help. 181622

    Re: Fender 5 string electric mando

    Stewart MacDonald is probably you're best bet. Does your mandolin have the brownish buttons on the tuners? You probably won't find them anywhere, but maybe if you use a black button it won't be so...

    Re: F-4 owned by Norman Blake

    The "Norman Blake" one sounds better, in my opinion.

    Re: F-4 owned by Norman Blake

    I've played it a couple of times. It's a great sounding mandolin.

    Re: SKB Case for 1918 Gibson A Mandolin?

    I keep my 1919 A2 in a modern, tweed covered F style case. Fits perfectly

    Re: EM-150 questions

    Here's a picture of another pre-1940 EM-150:180838
    I think that the mandolin in question is an earlier one, because the pickup isn't bound, while later examples had the binding like this one.

    Re: EM-150 questions

    No, that's a pretty stock looking Em-150, made between 1936 and 1940. The screws in the top hold the "Charlie Christian" pickup in place, and the knobs were on the opposite sides during this period. ...

    I think that the days of getting great deals on Ebay are pretty much over, especially when the auctions are posted here.

  16. I think something's wrong with my mandolin.

    Last night, my band played an outdoor event in Hamilton, Montana. It was about 55 degrees when we started playing at 5, and was about 42 when we finished at 9.
    I knew something was odd when I pulled...

    Re: 1919 gibson a3 #mandolin

    Without seeing the serial number, I'm going to say that it's a 1922 A-3. I've seen others where the truss rod cover obscures the inlay. I think that Gibson probably used the existing peghead overlays...

    Re: '17 A-1 Bridge

    I had a CA bridge fitted to my 1919 A2, and ended up putting the original back on. The mandolin just lost some of that overtone-y goodness that I like so much about it. It's nice to have the CA...

    Re: Old Gibson A mandolin copy?

    It looks like a Japanese-built mandolin from the early 70's to me. If it's playable, it seems like a good deal.

    Re: Case for Gibson Oval

    I have a generic tweed F5 case that my 1919 fits in just fine. The extra space for the scroll is a nice place to put a strap, tuner, etc.

    The problem is that there is only a very small area on the side of the fingerboard to attach the pickguard to. This is a whole different thing than a mandolin with an elevated fingerboard.I just...
  25. Modern pickguard for a teens Gibson A?

    I really like some of the smaller, floating pickguards on modern mandolins, and I'd like to have one on my 1919 A2.
    Is anybody making something like that?
    Thanks!
