    Re: Gibson catalogs

    I loved the "mandolin furnishings" in the catalog. Cool that you could select the various replacement parts.

    Re: New F9

    I think my (rebuilt) F-9 fits in well with my others.

    Shouldn't have a flower pot.
  6. Re: MAS: Remember, it's stronger than you and there ain't no vacc

    Last year I decided to rid myself of the electric guitar section of my collection. I found myself not being inspired to pick them up to play. I only play mandolin out but I kept the acoustic guitars...

    Re: Suddenly feeling old

    From a recent photo and a 28 year old photo, I'm told I haven't changed a bit, lol! My shirt hasn't aged either!
  8. Re: How important is having the original hardshell case?

    If I were to find two different examples of the same model in the same condition, I would choose one over the other (all things being equal) if only one had an original case. As others pointed out,...

    Re: Adding or replacing binding?

    You could just use masking tape and paint a faux binding on it:) The econo guitars and mandolins of years past used painted on binding. I saw a Les Paul Studio recently that someone had scraped...

    Re: Suddenly feeling old

    I like the button I spotted at a book store. It said: I may be old but I got to see all the cool groups.

    I often feel that way. I play in a couple of groups where I am the oldest.
  11. Re: Virtual Shop Tour(s)... I'll show you mine

    I'm jealous! It's very nice. My shop shares space with my wife's car as the depth of our garage is the full depth of the house. I have most of my power tools on wheels so I can make my sawdust...

  13. Re: What should I do with this interesting and great sounding man

    I like the double flower pot! Unless you are planning to keep it for yourself, I'm afraid the economics would probably exceed what you'd hope to recover. This repair to fix the neck and take care of...

    Re: D'Addario picks?

    I find that the Golden Gate tortoise 1.3 mm compares very well to the Thile/D'Addario 1.4 mm. Obviously less expensive to replace a lost Golden Gate, lol!

    Re: Clown Barf picks available

    I just tried to order the lg. triangle shape in 1.03 mm and they are sold out. I find that the Pick Boy 1.00 mm fine for guitar but prefer thicker for mandolin.

    Re: Old F4 Mandolin Neck- Bonus Cheap Body

    It seems strange to me that someone decided to graft an F-4 neck onto a modern economy priced F-4 style body.

    Very good info/warning from John Hamlett regarding potential damage tightening the viola clamp. The viola clamps are used on mandolin armrests so more commonly used these days. I made this little...

    Re: Eastman - back/neck separation

    If Eastman uses a dovetail joint, it would look to be a poor fitted joint. Repairable but not a small job.

    Re: F5 with an OVAL hole?

    I had a radius and a refret done to my Gibson Fern. Not uncommon and not necessary to remove the fingerboard.
