    Re: Eastman md 504 or Eastman km 272

    One of the differences I’d like to point out is where the neck meets the body. The Eastman MD-504 joins around the tenth fret and the fretboard sits flush on the top similar to a teens/twenties...
  4. Re: Washburn Model 23-24 Style F(?) questions

    Welcome to the insanity! :)) I'm no expert, but I think the serial number and label put it somewhere between 1923 and 1925. The tailpiece may be original, but it may have had a crown shaped cover...

    The mandolin sounds great, but the song and your overall performance just sound amazing! Thanks for sharing. :)

    Re: 2-point Orpheum branded Strad-O-lin on eBay

    Bill, I just want to point out that if you provide a link to a store then you're naming the store. I think it's great that you shared a link to an instrument that might be under the radar, but it...

    Re: 2-point Orpheum branded Strad-O-lin on eBay

    I don't want to respond to what any maker did or didn't do, but I do think Vintage Instruments gave you an honest description of the the instrument. NFI, but it seems like it's fairly priced in the...

    Id bring that one.
  9. Re: 1917 Gibson A2 mandolin original tuning mechines gear slop

    I don't have much to add other than the clean and lube trick has helped out a few of my old mandolins. I'm just curious though, are you the same Gene Sikora that recorded "A Song for Mary" and others?

    You can call that instrument anything youd like. The most compelling thing for me in the photo is seeing the handwritten lyrics for Operator. Looks like there were some alternative last verse...

    Re: Modern Oval Holes

    That is a beauty. Did they give any specs? If it's not a wide nut, I might be interested.
  14. Re: Interesting effects on West Dakota Rose intro

    It sounds like a delay to me. I had an Electro-Harmonix Canyon a few years back that did a similar sort of thing, but I only used it with a Telecaster. Id like to take a peek at his pedal board.

    Re: DO I need a better mandolin?

    Maybe you don't need better, just different. Possibly an oval hole or flat top. I don't see anything wrong with dropping 2K on a mandolin, but if the MK is the only mandolin you've ever played you...

    Re: Any experience with Mapes strings?

    Yes. I havent ordered custom gauges or been too concerned with the coating, but I currently have their 80/20s on my oval hole and I have PB Octacores on my F hole. No complaints. Theyre good...

    Re: Chopping my way through Jack-a-Roe

    Great tune. Maybe not always play an E7. Maybe just E like 467X. Maybe try F like 5301. Just a couple of thoughts.
  19. Re: Dose anyone know anything about this mandolin or its value

    I like the scroll. I wonder if maybe it started life as a lump scroll that someone pulled the neck off of and recarved. I know it has a Gibson tailpiece cover, but that doesn't mean it's a Gibson.The...

    I have! I was in the nursery/landscape trade some years back, but I still like to geek out on Latin names because they are more accurate than common names.
