    Re: does this look right?

    My 1906 A4 has a scarf jointed neck (pretty sure it is original) but it is in the opposite direction.

    Re: Collings MT Prices

    I have have/had many mandolins (Gibson, Weber, Pava, Summit, Northfield, etc.).

    My MT is a lifetime keeper! No better value in my opinion - the Northfield F5S is close behind as far as value.

    Re: Stepping up from the 1K bracket

    I am not sure of your budget, but two great choices which would be:
    Collings MT (A)
    Northfield F5S (F)

    An MT was my first really good mandolin. Many have come and gone, but the MT is like a...

  13. Re: Lowell Levinger with Little Steven & Disciples of Soul

    Thanks Mike - I'll bet the Asbury Park Press mentioned the Springsteen sighting. We were in the balcony so I could not see Lowell well behind the piano and back-up singers.

    Watson's Blues is fun. Check out the version by Don Julin and Billy Strings.
  16. Re: thinking about getting a mandolin looking for advice

    Putting aside the handmade / factory discussion, a preowned Collings MT with wide nut option is a great choice.

    Re: Blackwell Mandolin - Looking for Info

    Thanks Jim. The seller had no info and Googling didn't yield any info.

    It probably is a one-off, though Mr/Ms Blackwell was pretty talented - it is pretty well made, fit and finish are really good.
