    Re: Schaller tuner replacement

    Chances are you may have to redrill some of the screw holes. Hopefully the old holes are covered by the new plate. You're looking for worm-over A style tuners. You need to know the post hole spacing....

    Re: Mother-of-Pearl nut?

    A few years ago I had the nut on my F5G changed to pearl. I did it because I like the way it looked. The mandolin already sounded good to me.

    Re: Refinishing a Flatiron F5?

    It's your mandolin, you own it. It's your choice. Either way it will still be yours. Have at it. I agree, call Bruce and see what it was. Heck, he might even do the work for you. My Flatiron didn't...

    Someone else wrote on FB that they had purchased one of his songbooks and asked if Michael even got his own chords right! I agree with Allen. Good luck.

    You mean it wasn't made in Alabama? :cool:

    Strong resemblance.

    Re: Refretting

    Re: No makers marks on this one.

    A whole lot of makers used that open book headstock shape. The fact that Gibson can claim it to me is pretty laughable but they have. :cool:

    Re: Double Standard

    I never even thought about where that came from. It appears there are other explanations including a football explanation. None of them sounded real compelling to me so you're on your own.

    It really has nothing to do with you David or your concession. The process was started and people think this was some sort of admonishment and I just got a PM about it, so let me say this. I really...

    Re: Ready built electric mandolin necks?

    Not really, a neck is a neck. It takes X amount of wood(s), shaping, drilling fretting. Not so different really is it? It only becomes esoteric when we think that it is. If you fantasize that your...

    Re: Ready built electric mandolin necks?

    Look at the price of a Tele or Strat neck. They are sold all over the Internet. If your quality is anywhere near that you should get an idea.
