  1. Re: My gut's telling me to get this Regal Tenor Guitar

    The OP should probably buy it as he's a few miles away from it. Yes, we can geolocate an IP address.
  2. Re: Strap buttons/solution for vintage mando (Newbie question)

    Take a look at this. Two options with pictures.

    Re: Parrot Party

    I was under the impression that the parrot had been removed. I'm so happy to see it still there! I know the decals on the front went away. That's one of the things I've always wanted to do was have...

    Re: DW Stevens reverse mandolin.

    It's also on his website here. Not the first time that was done but it looks like it was well engineered. I like his better than the Unicorn and Mustang.

    It looks like he left us too soon. RIP.
  6. Re: Early mandolin recordings / Correcting Wikipedia

    I took out the first two.

    By the way, all three have an invalid attachment.
  7. Re: Who is a member/board member of a local BG/OT/Folk Society?

    I guess my mention of insurance in the fourth post didn't delve deep enough. Yes, don't expose your board members and trustees to litigation. Nobody should ever lose their house because somebody...

    Hey, I know the guy that posted that!
  10. Re: Who is a member/board member of a local BG/OT/Folk Society?

    I'm a trustee of the Bluegrass and Oldtime Music Association of NJ (BOTMA, one of dozens the US). We have had our ups and down over the years, recently reeling from the pandemic and members just...
  11. Re: Will CA Help on These Stradolin Cracks?

    In that case I would never use CA.

    See if James Condino in Asheville has time and if not consider sending it over to Bob (rcc56) in Nashville for the repair.

    If you decide to do it yourself...
  12. Re: Know what this is? It keeps staring at me!

    In the early 30's in trade publications Kay was advertising their laminated back and sides as a feature. Nicer Washburn's with laminated sides were a hot item in the mid 20's (see the link below)....

    Re: Identify 100 year old mandolin

    We do have a few members in Denmark. Hopefully one of them can suggest a luthier.

    Re: Identify 100 year old mandolin

    Sovereign was indeed an Oscar Schmidt brand name at the time this was built and it appears to be made of Koa not Mahogany. Don't do anything to restore this, you have an instrument that appears to be...
  15. Re: Know what this is? It keeps staring at me!

    They weren't exclusively marketed as Supertone's. It was a Harmony product.

    Re: Tell me why not: Carbon fiber bracing.

    The late Rick Turner used carbon fiber sandwiched bracing on at least one of the guitars they manufactured and also used CF rods inside the instruments. I'm sure there's more out there on the web...

    Re: When a mandolin tunes itself

    A group of guys I play with were joined on stage by a friend of a friend that had an electric Kay mandolin that she proceeded to plug in. When we came off stage my friend Larry said "I swore I heard...

    I had a singing partner for years that has now gone on into eternity. Every show we did he would run out to the bathroom 5 minutes before we went on and while he was...

    Re: What kind of tuners?

    That I can answer. You won't. They were a proprietary size unlike any of the other Grover tuners. The only buttons I ever saw were pearloid and Dave Harvey told me the gold tuners had real pearl...

    Re: What kind of tuners?

    A picture of the headstock from the back would be helpful.

    If they look like these they are Gibson Grovers, manufactured years ago for Gibson by Grover as a drop-in replacement for their previous...

  24. Re: Retailer: W & S 1920s- Any Info? Stromberg-Voisinet

    Mugwumps lists it as a Weymann trademark. Weymann & Son, 1864-1940.

    That would make sense. Weymann is known as a banjo manufacturer and more (including the mandolute) but they were also a large...
  25. Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    I would also argue that it's not the fanciest mandolin ever made by Martin. I think there are a few in the Martin Museum that would be more in line for that designation but who knows? I almost bought...
