  1. Re: Walnut Valley National Mandolin Contest winners

    Re: RIP Nanci Griffith

    For sure it is not.. I think Nanci was dealing with a chronic disease for a decade or more? Sad news I kind of lost track of her and her music last couple of decades.

    Re: Lost bit of binding, 1915 F-4

    Nice little story and fine outcome. You done good. Once you found the piece I think the repair took on a whole lower level of complexity? :) Actually it occurs to me that you might not have bumped...

    Re: Crossrock Mandolin Cases

    Beautiful looking case (and mandolin) but with reference to post #38 it does not look like the distal end of the head stock is well supported? This could subject it to damage if the case is dropped?...

  14. Re: Gibson F5 Hall of Fame Bill Monroe Mandolin

    Exactly! Mr. Harvey is that rare combination of genius combined with being a perfectionist -- hence the best Gibson mandolins since the 1920s! :)

    And yup that is a new mandolin. I was lucky...

    Re: Tone bar question

    Thanks Richard,

    Tone bar question

    But I wonder what is the limit in thickness and height that you won't go past in carving them?
