    Re: 1924 Lloyd Loar at Elderly Instruments

    Re: A. Lawrence Smart Mandolins

    I just took a look at the ad to refresh my memory. I see that it's at Carters. This means the price is top of the market and I expect they will have a return policy, which means you could try it...

    I hadn't thought of the octaves, but will be checking that out. Meanwhile, another member turned me on to emando.com for ball end strings. Great choice, prices, and service.

    Re: A Loar on Craigslist? Yes sir!

    Another approach to retopped or renecked instruments simply says that this reduces the instrument's value by 60%. If current Loars are selling for 90k, this would put the Craigslist Loar at $36,000,...
