    Re: Carlo loveri bowl back

    Hi Charlie,
    I've had a go at trying to repair the necks on Italian bowlbacks, and you are right, it is a very tricky proposition due to how they were constructed and the sequence of assembly.
    I'm...

    Not trying to talk you out of this L+H, mind you. Just raising a question worth following up on if you can.

    Re: Looking at Japanese bowl back

    Hard to really say much without playing the instrument or at least seeing images of it.

    I've had a couple MOR Japanese bowlbacks but moved them along pretty quickly. Both sold in a NY minute to...

    Hard to know what to say.....

    Do you have a budget in mind? How impatient are you to get started on playing?

  5. Re: Please help! Newbie looking for bowlback to learn on!

    I agree with David, the string height does look better on this one.

    Still looks like a bit of deformation of the top just were the fretboard meets the soundhole.

  6. Re: 1963 Pasquale Pecoraro Roman Embergher-Style Bowlback Mandoli

    I think you are aware, Mick, that the Pecoraro has a maple bowl, right?


    You are giving my eyesight too much credit, Jim. This is my second bois de rose false positive in a couple weeks.

  7. Re: 1963 Pasquale Pecoraro Roman Embergher-Style Bowlback Mandoli

    Tim, I'll let the Embergherians here speak to the Pecoraro. The Reverb site has some good photos which I'll add here for posteriority.

    I am a sucker for a rosewood fluted bowl, however.

    Re: 1962 Calace

    These folks are right in London. Franco can you head on over and see it in person?

    890 lbs is around $1100 US. As Jim says that's a reasonable price.
    It may be that you are comping the price...

  19. Re: Please help! Newbie looking for bowlback to learn on!

    Well.....fair play to you.

    I won't get into the topic of the appropriateness of the mandolin for a late 18th C context. Such questions have come up in the past with Civil War re-enactors thinking...
