    Re: Help Idenify Bowlback Mandolin

    Tailpiece is generic and appears on many mandolins from the period so that patent pending is for that tailpiece. Butterfly inlay is also one of the more popular ornamentations for bowlback and often...

    Re: Bag or case

    I have watched too many folks on flights cramming large suitcases into the overhead racks. You were lucky. You may not be quite a lucky the next time. The last time I flew with a mandolin I had it in...

    Hey, Sheri: Just wondering what you mean by the above distrust.
  4. Re: "Anileda," by Stellario Cambria and ...?

    I know there may be privacy concerns but I would be very interested in who this great aunt was. I was a member of the NY Mandolin Orchestra back in the 1980s and there were a few of the original...

    Re: Taropatch coming my way :-)

    Actually the original Martin taropatches were larger than sopranos. In fact they were the precursor to the concert size ukes. Info here: https://www.ukulelemag.com/stories/great-ukes-martin-taropatch

    Re: Bag or case

    I have my Campanella in a TKL case with the Tone Guard and it fits fine but no strap. OTOH I don't trust a gig bag to protect my mandolin enough. All my good instruments are in hardshell cases. No...
  7. Re: Recommendations for a great Jazz tenor guitar?

    Looks like it is gone from the classifieds.
  8. Re: Recommendations for a great Jazz tenor guitar?

    I guess I was thinking of primarily acoustic archtop. I actually had an EST-150 From the 1930s with the CC pickup which I sold along with other CC instruments.

    I would assume Gryphon knows what...

    What is a Gibson 150? Not sure I have heard of that for a TG.

    Back in my youth I listened to Frank Zappa and my favorite of his was Lumpy Gravy which was an album length composed piece influenced by modern composers. Zappa Especially liked Edgard Varese so I...

  13. Re: Recommendations for a great Jazz tenor guitar?

    This one just listed in the classifieds: Gibson Tgl-7 Tenor Archtop Guitar, 1934
  14. Re: Recommendations for a great Jazz tenor guitar?

    Sounds like the OP is looking for an upper-end archtop, not a flattop or lower-end TG.

    Re: New build, bowl back mandolin

    Very nice, Yaron. I do love the sound of that one.

    I tried to embed the video from Facebook but the BB code didn't quite work.

    And he plays everything on a Rogue A model. I am sure, though, that he had expert setup done on it. I love the ####### and kissing sax sounds.

    Re: Astroturf Noise

    There's a point early on when they sound like a composer whose name escapes me who I believe composed some frantic film music. I am sure it will come to me later today. :)
  21. Re: String spacing for 6 string to tenor guitar modification

    I am not sure why you would need to replace the tuners to make it a four-string. Why not just leave the original tuners?
  22. Re: A Gibson A3 in the white. In the white — get it?

    I don't know... 1981 was 40 years ago. I was certainly into "vintage" instruments back then and would never have refinished even in those bad old days. In fact I think I bought my 1919 A3 from...

    Full title is "Barbara in the Morning" for Andy's wife. Here are the credits. Marty Confurius was Andy's regular bass player in those days. I would guess the person playing brushes was Frank Clayton....
