  1. Re: Stradolin Waverly/Tortoisehell Fancy Tailpiece

    Wow, there's quite a bit of variation in these. The OP cover isn't really like mine, either.

    201684

    Do you think the appearance, stripy vs. mottled, is related to the year it came from?
  2. Re: Stradolin Waverly/Tortoisehell Fancy Tailpiece

    I wonder if this is the same one discussed in this other thread: Junk Late 40s A50- Bonus S-O-L Tailpiece! Final price on that was $361 after 27 bids. Opening bid for this tailpiece/cover is $125.
  3. Re: Stradolin Waverly/Tortoisehell Fancy Tailpiece

    Wow, do you think it's really worth that much?!? That's a fair portion of what I paid for my whole mandolin only 2 years ago.

    I feel like this represents mando-inflation and that SOL should be...
  4. Re: Has anybody heard of an English maker called Frederick Winslo

    That is way cool and different. What a fantastic aquisition!
    I don't know about the rest of you, but I'd love to hear the sound of it.

    Re: Trying to get info on my mandolins

    Well, not exactly, Jerry.
    You don't have the snazzy stairstep fretboard extension :cool:

    You've got some pretty dang cool ones, though.

    Re: Guitar flight case in overhead?

    Be aware that priority boarding is no guarantee of group A on Southwest. My sister flew Manchester NH to Tucson several weeks ago with priority boarding. She was in group B (still likely okay for...

    Re: Trying to get info on my mandolins

    Jerry, your SOL looks very much like mine, and I have also been told 1940 or 1941 based on the tuners. (There is no date inside mine.)
    Nick, what does your guitar look like? I am curious.

    Re: How to “woodshed”

    Sound like a very fine birthday present to yourself, Ed. I almost feel more relaxed just hearing about it.

    Have fun!

    That's the most important part, isn't it? Have fun with that thing!

    You make a good point. I'd like to see what yours looks like.

    Re: Regal Octofone

    When I got mine and took it up to Jake W to have the neck fixed, I asked him about a pickguard. "Nah," he said, "they didn't have them."

    Check out the case with this one

    I want the case.

    Re: Question on "tiers" of instruments

    I have one of those Morris flat tops, Joe. It's a nice mandolin. It was my #3 (not bought as move up but as additional :cool:). It's the only brandy new mandolin I've acquired (thus far). It took...

    Re: Question on "tiers" of instruments

    Not an answer to your question, but my 7₵ as a fellow newbie:



    Valid point. You need to know what you want.



    Invalid Point. Consensus is a good mandolin can help you get better faster and...

    Re: Mix/NewMAD A4 at Guitar Center

    I saw one of these appear for about a nanosecond in the classifieds the other day, and I thought about the one you were evaluating. Thanks for the report, sounds like a fair amount of issues there.

    Re: Replating a vintage National mandolin

    Function. Definitely function. And then appearance. But appearance doesn't necessarily mean pristine, like new (although it could).

    Some instruments are truly amazing works of art. (I've seen more...

    Re: "The Mandolin Case" by Dr. Tom Bibey

    That's a great book. I loved it as well as the sequel "Acquisition Syndrome"
    Not only the mandolin/music aspect, but the sheer wholesomeness. Wish he'd lived to write more.

    Re: Kind Of Iffy F-2

    Ad says it's to settle an estate. JB and I have been kicking this around offline for a couple days, and I'm also curious what people think (though I already have my own ratty F2 :grin: )

    Re: Music Library for Samsung Tablet???

    You've already got Brad Laird's Jam Session Survival book, right? He's got a tablet version.

  22. Re: How does it work when people are playing together?

    Interesting discussion, and I appreciate the varied insights.



    I think this starts to veer toward the concept of "Beer Music" alluded to in the other thread ;)
  23. Re: This just showed up in my inbox re: Gibson guitars

    Well, my point was that River Dave hasn't apparently accrued any squatter's rights, even after many years. Dave's up there in years, and that's where alot of the sympathy for his case comes from, but...
  24. Re: This just showed up in my inbox re: Gibson guitars

    I think it's all over the map. Tell that (squatters' rights are a legal reality) to "River Dave", an 80 year old who has lived for years on the bank of the Merrimack in NH. He's been kicked off the...
  25. Re: How does it work when people are playing together?

    Sure. But thanks for mentioning it.

    In the last few years, I've been lead to understand more and more that how one says something is often as important as what one says. Even more so online in an...
