    I found a Barcus-Berry pickup in the storage compartment of a used mandolin case. I have no need for the pickup and plan to sell it, but have no idea how much to ask for it. If anyone out...
  4. Re: BlueChip folks -look at this pic and tell me which one to try

    I have a Blue Chip TAD-60 and love it, but when I am at a jam outdoors somewhere, especially when it's in a dark place, I'm afraid to lose it. In those situations, I use a Dunlop Primetone, model...

    Thanks for the advice and encouragement. Now I'm rethinking the project and maybe I'll just repair the tops.
  6. Re: Need a flat mandolin top(just the top to replace one)

    Tavy,
    The tops are really too badly sunken(as well as cracked) to be re-braced. Thanks for your help.
  7. Re: Need a flat mandolin top(just the top to replace one)

    Thanks, Chuck. The more I read about building a flattop, the more I feel I can do it myself. I guess my main concern was getting the proper radius on the top, but I'm pretty sure I can figure it out...
  8. Re: Need a flat mandolin top(just the top to replace one)

    Thanks for the replies. I think I'll read up on how to get the proper thickness and bracing and build the top myself.

    After 30 years of playing(not as a pro), I developed "trigger finger" in my left index finger. It became so painful that eventually I could not continue playing. I tried supplements, stretching...

  14. Dressing frets on a compound radius board

    I have a Collings MT and it's my understanding that the fingerboard has a compound radius. The frets are getting to the point where they will need to be dressed. I've dressed/leveled frets on...

    Have a great 2013!!
  17. Re: Anyone familiar with 1930's Dobro mandolins?

    Schlegel,
    Thanks for the information. As it turns out, I do not plan to buy the Dobro that's listed, mainly because the nut width, as per the seller, is between 1-1/8" and 1-3/16" and I really much...
  18. Re: Anyone familiar with 1930's Dobro mandolins?

    Thanks, Allen. Just thought I'd mention that I already own a resonator mandolin, a National RM-1, which is really great. I am interested in the Dobro, primarily because I have $1400+ invested in the...
