    Re: In Praise of Michael Heiden

    I think Heiden Mandos don't get talked about all that much for the same reason Dudenbostel mandos don't get talked about that much. Most know they are top notch, both are arguably one of the 5 best...

  4. Some variations on the Sorensen Sprite Two-Point

    I just finished up an "Emerald Burst" Sprite Two-Point and realized that this mandolin has given me so many chances to play with finishing and to build for different types of players.

    First Vessel F4

    Just a few pics of my newly finished F4. Sounds like an F4 but more sustain and volume. The neck is only extended to the 14th fret. X braced.

    I think Bill Snyder is correct. But don't let that stop you from making it happen. Certainly it can be done.

    Re: White tops

    My very first Gibson was my 1919 whitefaced A-3 which I bought from Mandolin brothers in the late 1970s. It was the best-sounding A model on the mandolin wall at that time IMHO. It also was dear to...

    Most glues, white, yellow, epoxy and hide are slippery so there is no issue there.

    All of these glues will squeeze out of a joint, so there is no resistance. The only issue I can think of is...

    How cool is that?!? I wonder what kind of music MonteRock's father played. It looks like an early country or rockabilly machine.

    No need to laugh. It was an honest mistake. If you didn't know how a 1963 F5 differs from one made 40 years earlier, and if you didn't know that in the early '60s Gibson recycled a bunch of 5-digit...
