    Re: Has Waverly Jumped the Shark?

    I have Waverly tuners on two mandolins and two guitars and a banjo. All are fine. If there is something wrong with the tuners Stewmac will replace them.

    You might want to check if they are easy...
  4. Re: Sticky Handel Tuners on a 1915 Gibson F4

    You mentioned the late Paul Hostetter's tuner maintenance page and that is the first place I'd start. I'm sure the folks at Gryphon would be happy to get them turning for you as well. Paul was a Cafe...

    Re: Info on this Mandolin

    Circa 1900, most likely built in Chicago, the tailpiece was a standard item sold by jobbers and this has 10 strings and not 8. Probably built "for the trade" so it could be labeled with any label a...

    Re: Estate sale find in Ohio -- maybe

    True, until it comes to Martin mandolin serial numbers. The you'd be real surprised.

    Re: Better tone with light strings?

    I actually prefer the sound of heavier strings on my Gibson but I prefer the feel and playability of lighter strings. That might be coming with my advancement in age. If it sounds better to you then...

    Re: Estate sale find in Ohio -- maybe

    It looks more like a 60's model Martin to me as well. Maybe they reversed the 64 with 46.

    Re: Acquired a Strad-O-Lin

    The original tuners would have helped date it but I take it for earlier than the 50's. The bridge needs looks like somebody took an adjustable bridge and glued some pieces together then had to stack...

    Re: Schaller tuner replacement

    Gibson might still have some but I doubt Dave Harvey would give them up. They are occasionally available used. Grover's can be an issue. The shaft holding the buttons on the Schallers (and Gibson...

    Re: Schaller tuner replacement

    That must have been just prior to Gibson moving to the Gibson Grover tuners. Gibson had them made as direct drop in replacements so they didn't have to change any tooling if I recall correctly. Those...

    Re: Schaller tuner replacement

    Chances are you may have to redrill some of the screw holes. Hopefully the old holes are covered by the new plate. You're looking for worm-over A style tuners. You need to know the post hole spacing....

    Re: Chinese made mandolins (Northfield?)

    A few years back a gentleman named Bob McRee started posting here regarding having mandolins built in China. He lived there. He was basically turning a shop of violin luthiers into a shop of mandolin...

    Re: Mother-of-Pearl nut?

    A few years ago I had the nut on my F5G changed to pearl. I did it because I like the way it looked. The mandolin already sounded good to me.

    Re: Refinishing a Flatiron F5?

    It's your mandolin, you own it. It's your choice. Either way it will still be yours. Have at it. I agree, call Bruce and see what it was. Heck, he might even do the work for you. My Flatiron didn't...

    Someone else wrote on FB that they had purchased one of his songbooks and asked if Michael even got his own chords right! I agree with Allen. Good luck.

    I've been a fan for decades. I was sorry to hear of his passing. There's actually a Facebook group devoted to Michael if anyone is interested.

    I assume you are getting the same Stewmac messages that I get but if not they are having a sale on tools, I think it was 15% off on fret tools.

    Re: No makers marks on this one.

    A whole lot of makers used that open book headstock shape. The fact that Gibson can claim it to me is pretty laughable but they have. :cool:
