    Re: How many mandolins have you had?????

    I only have two, the Kentucky that was my first mandolin, and my F5G. The Gibson is perfect, I don't need another one, I love it.
    I do, however, can't seem to get enough banjos or guitars :)

    Re: Guitar Center Mandolin Experiences

    I have had excellent experiences buying used at Guitar Center. I bought my F5G from Nashville, had it sent to NY and I just bought a Stelling Golden Cross banjo from FL. You have thirty days to...

    Re: I'm A Little 'PICKY', I Guess

    I still like the Fender teardrop picks that I have been using for the past twenty years on electric guitar. I have gotten lectured a few times not to use these. As long as you can stand the pressure,...

    Re: Adam Steffey

    I am just hoping he is okay, because we saw him a few months ago with the Boxcars and this was a drastic difference. Sometimes that's related to illness, so my initial thought was of concern. He's a...

    Adam Steffey

    We just saw Adam Steffey play at the East TN State University bluegrass concert. Does anyone know if he's okay? He looks like he's about half the size. I didn't believe it was him until he started...

    Re: Gibson F5G or Weber Yellowston

    I was able to play a few Webers against a few Gibson mandolins. I liked the neck on the Gibson a lot more than the Weber necks. The Gibsons had faster, thinner necks. But, if you want that style...

    Re: Whatdidya' get?

    I've been playing banjo most of the time. As far as the Yates, I prefer my '27 TB-1 Gibson. Why buy something that is trying to sound like an old Gibson? Just get an old Gibson.

    I'm getting...

    Re: Gibson Mandolins 2013

    Does anyone have an idea of monthly or yearly production over at Gibson for their mandolins?
  14. Re: Advice on buying through Mando Cafe classifieds?

    I would buy in person so you can play the instrument and not worry about any issues.

    Re: Good price on '97 Gibson F5-G

    If you don't like how the mandolin sounds, don't buy it for any amount of money unless you just plan on selling/trading it. Make sure it is real though. It's too cheap so I would question it.

    Is it okay to honor tradition here? I don't want to see a bluegrass band with a vocalist who does not play an instrument. The difference with a bluegrass crowd is that you have a much larger...
  17. Re: What is the best mandolin somebody handed you to play

    I had the chance to play two Loars at IBMA for over a half hour. That was one of the best days of my life.

    Realistically, the best mandolin was an F body Duff since I could never buy a Loar.

    Re: Good price on '97 Gibson F5-G

    I have never seen one that inexpensive. I was going to say 3k is a good price. I would think he made a mistake at $2400. If you don't buy it, someone else a few minutes later most likely will.

    Re: all gibsons gone at the mandolin store ?

    Are you saying Gibson isn't making mandolins or just that the Mandolin Store is no longer carrying them?

    Re: What's up with the classifieds?

    What exactly is considered lowballing? If a mandolin is advertised for 10k, what would be a low ball offer? Also, sometimes things are priced well and sometimes things are overpriced. I saw an...

    Differenced between Gibson F5G, F5L and MM

    I am wondering what are the differences between an F5G and a Fern besides binding, a pick guard and different inlay on the headstock? Since I don't like pick guards and wanted the flower pot inlay, I...
