    Re: Kalamazoo serial numbers

    I think it's a KM-22. The years at times overlapped a bit. The Spann list is not complete so we don't see that FON listed but it's in the range to be in the 39-42 that this mandolin was available.

    Re: Kalamazoo bridge issue?

    Not ideal, maybe it wasn't centered when they applied string tension, or maybe the strings slots are off center, pulling the bridge off center while leaving the strings centered. And thought it's not...

    Re: Kalamazoo bridge issue?

    It's not centered, the strings are too close to the fret ends on the bass side, looks like it might be a little oversized too. I doubt it will hurt anything tho.

    Re: Update: Pensacola mandolins stolen

    This just feels so wrong. I am sorry you have to deal with this. I hate thieves. And I can't understand a music store feeling ok with doing this. Karma should bite them.

    I'm no lawyer, but that law seems very convenient for Blues Angel Music, doesn't it? It is obvious to me, that the store owner could contact the buyer from eBay and ask to undo the deal, explaining...

    You may be able to contact the buyer and seller using your eBay account. Maybe they are selling something else. I would contact Ebay now. If you tell them it is stolen property, I would think the...

    Get the information you have to your insurance company. They'd rather recover the items than pay you for the loss.

    Hopefully the Ebay purchaser will come forward; surely Ebay has a record of who posted the winning bid, etc....I know that I in good conscience couldn't keep an instrument that I knew was stolen.

    Upon further investigation, the 60s era A-5 did not have the same pickguard as the F-5. The A-5 had a 5-ply unbound PG with beveled edges around the curves, but no bevel on the straight side. Also a...

    Re: A Jethro style A-5 pickguard

    It's the same as the F5 and F12 pickguard but with nickel hardware. The late 50's to mid 1964 were pinned to the fingerboard like the F5. After mid 1964 they had one screw that went down into the...
