    Re: Are All Lloyd Loars Dropping In Price?

    Just speculation on my part, based on my experience with the vintage guitar world.

    The vintage guitar corollary to the signed Loar would be a 1958-60 Gibson Les Paul sunburst, affectionately...

    We've had this conversation before, but even in beautiful, unbelievable, fantastic condition -- there is a limit to what somebody will pay. Also, less demand for a Stradolin than let's say, a...

  13. Re: What if I removed the nitro finish from the sides of my mando

    It doesn't really bother me. It just looks like an old, worn mandolin. Hard to say if removing the flaking would look better or not. Short of a complete refinish, I'd probably just leave it alone.
