    tone guard

    If it's such a great thing, and as many will say, a must-have, why aren't makers incorporating the likes into their builds (are there some?)? I get it, yes it works.

    I have an archtop tenor that...

    Try Maruha. Their round hole archtop guitar has similar finish as on the back of this mando. I found a pic of a Maruha mando which is pretty close in shape and has similar f-holes, though I think the...

    Re: Please help to identify this mandolin?

    I have a 57 Ibanez round hole archtop guitar... with gold sparkle pickguard. They made "higher-end" blingier models and mando's along the same lines.

    I don't think this one's an Ibanez

    Look like late 50's Japanese. Zero fret, headstock shape, F holes general aesthetic

    Looking at the two I can't help but see the early Simpsons (Tracey Ullman Show) and the tamed down later Simpsons drawing. Brash and then smoothed out and less likely to offend.

    Wow! I want. I don't know what I'd put it on, but I want.

  12. Re: Need help valuing my used Asheville F-Style Mandolin

    I just found an old ebay listing (2011) with hard case $250 starting bid, no takers.

    Rule of thumb for me, new price less 1/3 if good condition.

    Re: loose (?) frets

    How much of a concern should a glued fret be if later considering a re-fret?

    I figured he was trying to "coin" a new hip term for improving something's performance, applying it to any such act. Maybe it's already a thing and just hasn't caught up with a guy my age.

    loose (?) frets

    I have a couple fret wires that have sprung loose at the end and so are too high. Best way to correct this? Should I remove, radius them and then reinstall? I read a post on the forum from someone...

    Re: Overclock your mandolin?

    I've heard of re-voicing before, but never gave it much thought/ really knew what it was.

    Overclocking??? Even in the YT description the poster wrote "We revoiced an Epi".

    Re: bridge taper

    I'll see about adding photos but any style of bridge I've seen, flat top or arch tapers (on at least one axis) at the ends (except for some solid body electrics).

    Re: BG jam

    In a jam, I'd think the tuning you're most comfortable in.

    For me that would be standard tuning which also makes it easy to 'follow' the mando - "samish" chords, just moved.
