    Re: Gibson A5-L unsold for 15 years

    This store is not an Internet business. None of the high end music stores are. They are not looking to do high volume sales. They build up a list of loyal clients, try and keep interesting stock...
  6. Re: Hypothetical high dollar mando purchase question...

    Astro made two statements that I took exception to. Iím not sure what those comments were based on, but letís look at a few examples. High end builders use different materials, including finish...
  7. Re: Hypothetical high dollar mando purchase question...

    I’m not sure how you are deciphering better, but what I said was “different”. I don’t believe I used the word “better” in any of the statements you’ve highlighted.

  8. Re: Hypothetical high dollar mando purchase question...

    Iím not sure what you are struggling with.

    I know where Dang is coming from because at $16k plus you wonder what that instrument brings to the table over others at a lower price point. Every...
  9. Re: Hypothetical high dollar mando purchase question...

    Play enough mandolins and you will learn the subtle differences in the builds. Fit and finish, feel, tone, volume, voicing, fretwork, choice of materials, etc. yes, all part of mandolin geek-dom. ...
  10. Re: Hypothetical high dollar mando purchase question...

    Not necessarily. I have played some mighty fine mandolins at the $20k price point, just none I'd take my checkbook out for.

    And yes, there was a big difference aesthetically as well as tonally...
  11. Re: Hypothetical high dollar mando purchase question...

    Dang, yes, I believe you bought my Blueridge tenor.

    I have to admit, I own a lot of really great instruments, have sold quite a few, and have played too many to even remember. I’ve played many...
  12. Re: Hypothetical high dollar mando purchase question...

    having found myself in this position, I can tell you eighteen months on, I still haven't found anything that I'd be willing to buy at the $16k+ level.

    I have the Glasser 4 and 5 string fiddles with a pickup. The 4 string without the pickup is quite light. Glasser does a great job, even over those buildersí instruments that are thousands more. ...

    Re: Ellis F5 Fern at Gryphon

    It would be less apt to slip off wherever you placed it. Rough surface of the strings versus the smooth back.

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    They may dial it back, as they did with the guitar models, but right now I’d say it’s a shade heftier than their MTO necks, which is a wide round profile. If you are looking for something more like...

    About five or six years ago, there was a guy down in Florida selling vintage Kalamazoo guitars for over $3k, which I thought was insane. I just took a quick look on Reverb, and there’s a few at $2k...

    There’s no margin left for dealers after the recent changes to “deal”, especially with free shipping. $1750 is THE price.

    Instruments are costing dealers more now, so unless their stock is from...
