    Re: 1890 5 course bandurria

    When are your dates for baroque bandurrias? Would they have been stung with gut or metal?

    Re: 1890 5 course bandurria

    I wonder if that is the soprano member of the bandurria family. It looks like it might be smaller. How does it compare to a standard 12 string one? Also would that have been strung with gut strings?

    Re: Prettiest A model I have seen in a while

    I certainly did not mean to take you to task or embarrass you, merely to insert a bit of reality as to what the mandolin market will bear. As Mary/Mandobar noted I also doubt it will last long even...
  7. Re: New Vessel Octave- my homage to the whiteface era

    Very cool, Gary. My first Gibson was a 1919 A-3. I miss it. Will you outfit your octave with a ivoroid pickguard? Aso, what scale length and bracing?

    Re: Left-Handed Players

    I should elaborate on my question. Aside from those folks who have, through accident or medical condition, had to switch handedness, are there any right-handed players who decided to switch because...

    Re: Silver vs. Nickel James Tailpiece?

    The one on my Brentrup never tarnished so it might be nickel. Works well though. If I was loaded I would buy one for other mandolins. Great tailpiece.

    Re: Jazz 5 Roberts/Tiny Moore Mandolin

    So your dad had a Bigsby? I can understand why he wished he never sold it.

    To clarify: is your dad's Jazz 5 like this one?

    Re: Prettiest A model I have seen in a while

    Ellis is one of the premium makers. His F5's are in the 5-figure range. Yes, this is the higher end of A-models but that is what it sells for.
    1) What Gibson F-5 can you buy for that kind of money?...

    Re: Silver vs. Nickel James Tailpiece?

    Same price, too. I have one on my Brentrup and I think it is silver... or is it nickel. Did he always make all three or was it only silver and gold originally?

    I am sure that Allen Hopkins will chime in here soon. He gave me the grand tour of Rochester for vintage instrument enthusiasts. Bernunzio is one and Stutzman is the other excellent store. They have...

    Re: Jazz 5 Roberts/Tiny Moore Mandolin

    I ordered a black finished Tiny Moore model (not the Jazz 5) from Tiny when he taught at Ashokan. I had it for a number of years and sold it to a swing player from the west quite some time ago.

    Re: Rosario Genovese mandolin

    Best strings in my opinion are Dogal Calace RW92b Dolce. In US available from Bernunzio.com. I am not sure where you are located.
