    Re: S.S. Stewart

    Built right around 1900, probably before 1915. Bill Monroe bought his mandolin in a Barber Shop as well. :)

    Somebody may be able to pop up a catalog page. It's a very good chance that it was...

    Re: Gifted mandolin

    Even the Chinese sellers didn't advertise the country of origin when these first started showing up.

    Re: Gifted mandolin

    It's not a vintage instrument, it was most likely made in Vietnam and sold on eBay. It's similar to this one. Sold by Antoniotsai or Bruceweiart.
  5. Re: Where in Chicagoland did this one come from?

    The other thing that kinda nags at me was I had only seen that tailpiece cover on Regals until I realized they were used on the real Shutt mandolins as well. If it could only talk.
  6. Re: Where in Chicagoland did this one come from?

    That's close, there is a chance that Wurlitzer commissioned the same instrument from different builders as well.
  7. Re: Where in Chicagoland did this one come from?

    In the Vintage ad social group there seem to be multiple occurrences of a similar body and pickguard style on a catalog page with a known Regal product. Curious.
  8. Re: Where in Chicagoland did this one come from?

    Then you see this and wonder.
  9. Re: Where in Chicagoland did this one come from?

    The pickguard shape looks like a Harmony. The snowflake was a common inlay on the Shutt style Harmony as well. Oscar Schmidt also built Supertone guitars (at least) so I'm assuming they could have...

    Re: Saddle Fail

    A whole lot of the older Harmony saddles failed the same way. Just the luck of the draw. These kits have been around for years and I don't recall a huge number of failed bridges, in fact I don't...

    Re: Scales for Left Handed Mandolin

    I'm not sure if the scales are in here or not, they generally are:

    Left Handed Chord Book

    Left Handed Chord Chart

    There is more out there.
  17. Re: Old Mandolin - Any Insight Much Appreciated

    Probably built by Regal. I'm sure one of our vintage experts will jump in with a model number and a catalog page at some point.

    Re: 1967 Gibson F-5 Custom

    I'm pretty sure he won't get the price that he "might" take. One way he could check the market is to put it on eBay with a high reserve. The bidding will go to what the market is willing to pay....
  20. Re: Old Mandolin - Any Insight Much Appreciated

    Both Regal and Harmony (both of Chicago) built similar entry level mandolins for decades. This one has been stripped and refinished. The tuners could be used to date it as to later not earlier. Maybe...

    Re: Damage to Loar A5???

    There's a reason I haven't driven up to visit the Girouard's. I'm not sure I could leave the place without ordering one of these. They really do nice work up there.

    Re: Lloyd Loar's Pick

    According to the book "Picks!" By Will Hoover, now out of print, David W. Barnes of Brooklyn, NY brought out a leather and celluloid plectrum in 1903 that didn't catch on. Aaron Burdwise of Baltimore...
