  1. Re: The long, arduous journey of Silverangel #438 - with a happy

    That is an amazing story. And the mandolin looks wonderful— certainly in my taste, simple but well-built and sounds great. What more can you ask for. Great to hear another wonderful story about one...

    Re: Would someone please buy this

    Ironically, I have played a handful of Collings mandolins over the years and the only one that appealed to me mostly from tone and playability was a Honey Amber A-5. I compared it to a few others...

    Re: Headstock Scroll repair?

    Almost every luthier I know is noticeable, but agree with John H that Bill B is especially noticeable.

    Re: Shopping! Or...Playing Around

    We have a couple GC stores within reasonable driving distances. Maybe two cheap mandolins in each. Many more ukes and guitars. Sam Ash is not much better. They’ve had the same Washburn hanging on the...

    I learned a lot of my immature style of playing from Harpo and Chico Marx. :)

    What style(s) of music do you play and what type of banjo? Generally I find that just playing every day, even a little bit, helps everything. If you have a practice regimen but limited in time them...
  11. Re: Music for duets for me (mandolin) with my brother (mandola)

    Does your brother play CGDA tuned mandola (like viola) or octave mandola (GDAE). BTW viola music is usually written in C clef bt if he is a cellist he probably knows that already.

    Re: Neapolitan Serenades

    I wish I was in LA. I am a very immature old man and I have been playing that music for quite a few decades and, might I add, very immaturely. Sorry... :)

    Re: Would someone please buy this

    Bring only enough money for the strings. Leave all credit cards home. Keep your hands in your pockets and look straight ahead not at that wall. Oh, yeah, don't sell your car.

    Re: Help. I need information

    Roy Killgore was a fretted instrument teacher and obviously a Gibson dealer. That label probably does not add anything to the value of the mandolin just an interesting fact.

    Yes, you are correct, that is a different label with some illustrated ribbons. I don't have any examples of that label in my files.

    Very nice! My favorite is the advanced feature of up to 10 fingers. Interesting. Nothing seems to change though, that I can see.
