    Re: C F Martin mandolin

    Great story, glad you are the new keeper of something which should be able to be handed down for another generation!
    I think you are doing a great job with the cleaning.

    Re: Orville Gibson in sartorial splendor

    It’s my understanding that that was a costume for some sort of theatrical production he was in at the time.
    “Flair” indeed!

    Re: Question for Experienced Players

    I’ve said that before Marcus CA,
    It’s called “PLAYING” music!
    Doc Watson once said: “When playin’ music turns into a job it will be time to quit!” Great way to look at it, Doc,
    I have felt that a...

    Re: Question for Experienced Players

    There is a great tendency for break neck speeds for breakdowns (sorry, I will go to my corner) and a very great amount of Bluegrass music, the problem is so many replace “Drive” with SPEED! And it’s...

    Re: Is this really worth $70k?

    I repeat myself:
    “Askin’ ain’t sellin”
    It’s a great mandolin I'm sure, CJ has excellent taste in mandolins, and knows what he wants. He clearly states that he wants to proceed with a new venture...

    Re: Are All Lloyd Loars Dropping In Price?

    Sad but, I have to agree. The younger generation does not use sterling flatware and consequently sells that for scrap nine times out of ten too. I love it and take care of my mothers sterling and we...

    Re: Are All Lloyd Loars Dropping In Price?

    What’s it worth?
    Depends on whether your buying or selling. And like I’ve said before, ”Askin’ ain’t sellin’”.

    Re: My band asked me to stop playing guitar

    That’s great! You now can be the butt of all the “littlest instrument” jokes but, you don’t have to haul that big guitar or ridiculously heavy banjo around! The mandolin is a “win, win instrument”!!...

    Darryl,
    Did you look at your wife and say
    “This little guy followed me home, if I had ever brought him in, somebody was gonna steal it!”
    It worked for my wife’s son several times, I miss both of...

    Re: Are All Lloyd Loars Dropping In Price?

    This reminds me of being in the jewelry business and people asking if “Gold was up or down?” The answer was generally “Yes”, it’s all relative.
    They are still “up” from the time they were first sold...

    Re: One Mandolin - forever...

    I was wondering if Demetrius was going to ring in with that one! When I gave it its test run back in ‘07 I really didn’t want to give it back! It just felt good!

    Re: That Stitched band around a case lid

    Try a plastics place, something like what they make flexible plastic rulers out of might bear fruit more readily than reaching out to a manufacturer.

    Re: Leather Calton Case Cover

    Take a trip to Brownsville TX! You could have it “Tuck and Rolled” to boot (or upholster).
