    Re: Help identifying 2 banjolins

    I think check out evilbay "EBAY" as there are loads of MB's there to look at! Yours are nice but I don't think bring too much cash unfortunately. Gibson's seem to bring the most $ as some convert...

    Re: Mojo on beloved Daley mandolin

    I'd say if its a keeper leave her be! I think it looks great! I'm no pinky planter but have to have a pickguard as a guide of sorts-yeah its a mental thing! "I know I've got a complex!" But to me...

    That's a very NICE Camp! Jim. I love the looks of that and if it sounds half as great as she looks you did very well.
  5. Re: Help with year on my Kentucky mandolin serial number

    Maybe a 2014? And the 394th instrument that year? That's just a guess based on the breakdown of serial# given? Some instrument #'s are deciphered like this.
  6. Re: Guitar (not mando) Advice for what to do with it

    If you can and like it, keep it? I was pretty much gifted an attic find a bit over a year ago and its getting restored as it is rough, it was in a crawl space that they actually had to knock part of...
  7. Re: Need help valuing a Gibson, two Adams and a Morgan Monroe

    The Morgan in all Black-I really like but yeah I think I said 500 bucks, maybe a bit less but it still has potential as does the others, The Gibson has a flowerpot reminiscent of say a 1927 F-4? I've...

    Re: Dec 18, 1980 signed Gibson F-5L

    I had a 1980 Gibson F5-L-don't remember who it was signed by but what I do know was that Dewey Farmer bought it new and was very disappointed with it so it had an internal re-grad by maybe "Ward...

    Re: A Much Less Obvious 12/26 Question

    I like it and her vocals remind me of an old soul! She has that vintage killer vibe in her vocals, she could easily do 30's-40's type Jazz with ease I believe!
  11. Re: Need help valuing a Gibson, two Adams and a Morgan Monroe

    The Adams, maybe 800-1000 a piece, "I don't know his work but they look well made!" the MMonroe- around 500 and the Gibson maybe 1800 on a great day-I say this as Tom mentioned above these are not...

  15. Re: Why is this Gibson being called an A-5?

    I imagine these Gumby 60's Gibson's could be modified and made to sound and play 100% better! I bet the long neck round hole one shown above could sound very interesting redone? I just wonder how...
  16. Re: Why is this Gibson being called an A-5?

    The Cromwell is an F-hole and missing the lower body point! Pretty sweet and rare with about 7 made!

    Re: Sam Bush Fern '34 LE

    Gibson is famous for the inconsistences, my late 30's F-7 conversion has the treble F-hole very far in the body compared to the bass side, and is very off! But it sounds so great it has never...
