    The winning bidder only bid once with 3 seconds left....
  11. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    "The bottom line is that one has to judge every instrument with his own ears and hands, and choose what sounds and feels best to them."

    I have absolutely found this to be true. I bought a 1917 A4...

  19. Re: Ellis Deluxe Mandolin #110 - scam sales on eBay and elsewhere

    I occasionally appoint myself Mando Police on eBay. There have been a repetitive string of fraudulent listings of mandolins lately. They include a Flatiron F, a '27 Gibson Mandola, a '24 Snakehead,...
