  2. Re: Any ideas regarding manufacturer and age of this Mandolin?

    It's a turn of the century (a little before or after 1900) Lyon and Healy built entry level mandolin. It was built for the trade to be sold by a retailer, school, or teacher as their own. Thousands...

    Re: B & J Serenader Resonator Mandolin 1930s

    I kept looking at it and I knew the first name was right but something was just not getting there for me on the second name so I looked it up. I couldn't remember the second name either.

    Re: Gibson Year Date

    The metal ring that caps the resonator on this is the same as my Supertone tenor banjo. Supertone was a Sears brand but Sears didn't manufacture anything. What you have is one of thousands of banjos...
  11. Re: Weber factory tuner I.D. wanted / Adjustment question

    I'd be looking to make sure the string wasn't binding in the nut slot before I'd start messing with the tuners.

    Re: Help needed - Kalamazoo KM-21

    The best feeling/playing neck I ever had on any mandolin was on a KM-11. I think on most of the Gibson second lines they swept the factory floor for the components. Keep in mind that these couldn't...

    As Billy mentioned the gauze is original as is the brace and for the reason he stated. As to why Gibson went to big F holes in the 30's I have no idea but it's one way that we have identified unknown...

    They never had internal labels. On occasion they do have a date penciled inside the top. Please add pictures to the Strad-O-Lin Social Group.
