    Re: The D.Gilchrist in the classifieds

    Wow, nice looking mandolin. I'm not quite sure what warrants that extremely high price. There are some wonderful well made electrics out there at a fraction of that $$.

    Re: Bob Venn Tiny Moore 5 String Electric Mandolin

    Yeah, that's way more than I'd be willing shell out for that mandolin. I actually like the Roberts design better ( and own one).

    Re: 4-string emando, what’s the best out there?

    I've played a lot of electrics, and most of them were great. For the money, I highly recommend J.L. Smith. A mid priced instrument with excellent workmanship and sound.

    Ditto on Ted's comment. John makes great instruments and is easy to work with.

    Re: 1953 EM-200 original red or refin?

    Looks refinished to me. I don't believe they made an EM 200 that color. Or any other mandolin for that matter. I'm not sure how they can justify asking $12,000 for it.
  6. Re: 1952 Bigsby inspired 5 string Electric Mandolins

    Eddy- those are awesome looking. If I only needed another mandolin. I should really stay off this site. It's cost me way too much money over the years. Keep up the good work.

    Re: mixer for three instruments to one amp

    I play fiddle and 2 or 3 mandolins when I gig. I use a Baggs Venue. It allows you to use one cord for all instruments in that when you hit the tuner foot switch, it cuts the signal off so you can...

    Re: Mann mandolins?

    I've had both the SEM and the EM. They were wonderful instruments, but like a dummy, I moved them on to new owners. Mine were both 5 strings. Tone was very clean if wanted, but I'm usually on a...

    Re: Martin mandolin info

    Hey, thanks for all the replies. Looks like late 40's- kind of what we thought. It's in pristine condition for an instrument of that age. I just need to put some new strings on it to make it really...

    Martin mandolin info

    So, I was gifted a beautiful Martin mandolin from my niece for Christmas. How cool is that? She's had it for years and hasn't played it for a long time. She thought it was from the 40's, but wasn't...

    Re: New to me JL Smith 5 string

    I did the review 10 years ago, if indeed that is the same instrument, so it's at least 10 years old. I believe it was new when I got it. You could probably check J L Smiths website for more...

    Re: New to me JL Smith 5 string

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe I used to own that mandolin. I think that's the one I did a review of for Emando.com years ago. It was a sweet mandolin. I've had 4 of John's mandolins, and they were...

    It wasn't me Martin. I believe that's actually a picture of the old National that I bought from that elderly gentleman a few years ago. It looks identical. I think I sold or traded it to you. The...
