    Re: Danelectro Guitarlin

    Well-l-l-l ... First run, maybe. The beauty of records is they can be played anytime after they've shown up. :whistling:



    Apparently it's the high number of frets - 31 - and the deep cutaways...

  3. Re: Iím afraid woodshedding has made me worse

    It's come up a few times, how to define "woodshedding," and I'm in the same camp as tmsweeney in Post #3 and jellwoo in Post #13. I believe the term refers to a concentrated, focussed, work-like...
  4. Re: New Neil Young Documentary Tomorrow Only

    No worries. I just figured you were underinformed, since people who don't live here are subjected to a lot of marketing by the local business cabals, which play up the party town image (admittedly,...
  5. Re: New Neil Young Documentary Tomorrow Only

    Sure, but once you subtract the tourists, there is quite an eclectic citizenry here, and that includes a fair amount of pretty wealthy people, as well as many artistically-minded citizens. There's a...
  6. Re: New Neil Young Documentary Tomorrow Only

    Here's a quick heads-up: My local art cinema tells me it's screening this today - December 3rd. They've done this before, on occasion, for opera mostly, but also other genres. They are set-up with...

    Re: A Special Guest at the Blue Note

    Well, for starters, the general public could come to understand that the mandolin is a unique and wonderful instrument, no longer mistaken for a guitar, a ukulele, or a banjo. The public could also...
  8. Re: Why are old Gibson snakeheads worth so much more?

    Let me be the first to wish your mandolin a Happy 100th Birthday! :mandosmiley:
  9. Re: Iím afraid woodshedding has made me worse

    I wonder if the issue isn't so much musical or practical as it is social. You said you play/practice on the ukulele while sitting on the couch with your wife while watching TV. I wonder whether these...

    Re: Was just gifted a 1906 mandolin

    Congratulations! I'm sure you understand what a wonderful gift you've received. That was top of the line for that body shape.

    Other people hereabouts will be able to advise you better than I about...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Yes, indeed. This ain't that! :))

    BTW, thanks for holding off on your usual druthers regarding posting pics for posterior. ;) Don't think this deserves that accommodation. :whistling:

    Right? If one had a hankering to hang something like this on the wall - even of an outhouse ;) - one could slap it together for a lot less. :))

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Yeah, not sure it qualifies as a mandolin, nor even an instrument. The seller himself isn't sure whether it's a guitar, a ukelele, or a mandolin. Good luck stringing it up woth those tuners, or even...
  14. Re: Why are old Gibson snakeheads worth so much more?

    Everyone's dancing around it but not coming right out and saying it, so I will - they're worth more and they cost more because they're better. That's it. End of story.

    OK, I'm kidding, of course....

    Yes, I've been reeling from this news all afternoon. It's so sad. She had so much soulfulness. Stevie Nicks had the looks that grabbed so much attention, but Christine McVie had the heart, mind, and...

    Thanks for the update on your mic situation. It still stinks that you suffered that loss, but the way they are being replaced is heartwarming - with a story to boot. I've suffered a loss this way...

  19. Re: Ultimate Vintage Snakeheadedness and Chocolatey Goodness

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think "chocolatey goodness" refers to the appearance, not the aroma. But it could be, something that yummy-looking could smell that yummy too. The way some things improve and...
