    Re: Rare Gibson-made Capital Electric mandolin

    Hm. Well, no truss rod cover there ...
  2. Re: Amazing Musical Instrument Company Electric Mando

    Well, I was looking at it too ... I probably would've tried to get a luthier to add a magnetic pickup to it. I think I recall seeing one other one that had been modified in that fashion.
  3. Re: Amazing Musical Instrument Company Electric Mando

    Well, there isn't much else to know. The instrument has just a piezo pickup, not a magnetic one. I think the body is the same one Amazing used for its violins, although of course the neck is...
  4. Re: What information is there about JWW Mandolins?

    That sounds right.
  5. Re: Shocking revelation! Lyon & Healy Style C on eBay

    Heck, I've sold a tailpiece cover alone for that amount. That is certainly one way it could go, presuming the buyer isn't paying someone else to do the work.
  6. Re: Shocking revelation! Lyon & Healy Style C on eBay

    Wow, it went for $818.08!

    I hope it was bought by someone with repair skills who will fix it because it's the right thing to do ... but at that price there's almost no financial upside.

    Re: Fender 5 string electric mando

    "sent [you] packing"? Jeepers, these are 20-year-old instruments with very distinctive custom tuner buttons, and I'm just a li'l ol' emando-flipper.

    The people to ask would be luthiers who do...
  8. Re: Shocking revelation! Lyon & Healy Style C on eBay

    Well, it is still at $325, so who knows whether it will go much higher before it sells?

    It's not a money-making prospect for anyone who doesn't have the necessary repair skills and some time on...

    Re: Amy Helm chord form

    VERY good! Yes, 5-string players in particular should consider thumb-hooking when appropriate.

    Re: Need help identifying Mandolin from Ukraine

    Definitely Greek. I can make out Thessaloniki on the label; the luthier's name appears to be S. Anthomelidi.

    And it turns out that Mousika Anthomelidi still shows up as a business listing in...

    Re: Mandobird revisited

    Heh. I just missed one on Craigslist in Indiana that had been upgraded with a pair of Bartolinis!
  14. Re: Emando players: What do you want in an amp?

    I dig the MicroPro too, which I bought on Pete's recommendation. It's pricey; I wonder if a more basic version without all the modeling options might be what I'm looking for. I'm floating the idea to...
  15. Emando players: What do you want in an amp?

    Emando players: Suppose a boutique amp builder were to try to create an amp specifically to be used with electric mandolins.

    What characteristics would such an amp need?

    (By "characteristics"...

    One photo shows damage along the bass side of the fretboard, near the scroll. I can't tell if it is just finish damage or something more serious.

    Well, it's possible that I misunderstood what this tech was offering. I might pay $195 for a really thorough setup job including a fret dress, but it sure sounded like she was saying she'd charge...

    Re: Lyon an Healy?

    Up over $1K.

    I was interested in part because I already have a potential line on a tailpiece cover, but at this price I think I'm out. I got a Style B (L&H label) in *much* better condition on...
