    Re: Don Williams

    I've been a fan since his folkie days. His songs never seem over produced and that mandolin is just pleasant.

    Re: Help Identifying a Case

    Elderly and a few others sold those "Made in Canada" cases for years with the tweed covering and the shag carpet interior.

    Re: Can of air

    I'm in an industry that embraced canned air for decades. I think all of us just use a small vacuum now.

    Re: Harmony

    In the early 60's Harmony instruments were sold new in pawn shops in Portland, Oregon. It was apparently their choice for a dealer network in that town. They were cheap and since we were all coming...

    Re: Harmony

    It might be a new line for Sweetwater but these have been around for a few years. It's just a name but at least they have attempted to duplicate some models. Some of us that grew up when this was all...
  13. Re: Need some help to assess the value of a restored 1972 F5 Gibs

    Re: Lovely Regal Bowlback & Leather Case

    If you can get a clear shot of the labels it should ID it as a Wulschner instrument built in Indianapolis.

    Re: Lovely Regal Bowlback & Leather Case

    I had one pass though several years ago that was just like this one. I didn't get a quarter of that price back then. You're right about the price.
  17. Re: Need some help to assess the value of a restored 1972 F5 Gibs

    Could you post pictures of the mandolin? It is very difficult to assess an instrument's value without seeing it.

    I didn't see Targ & Dinner in Mugwumps either. I'm guessing they were a distributor in the Chicago area.

    Re: No love for old Martins?

    That brand appears on guitars and ukes that I take to be circa the 30's but doesn't show up in the Mugwumps Encyclopedia. I'm sure it was a private label for somebody and not an actual manufacturer....
