  2. Re: ALVAREZ MANDOLIN F Style A900 early 1970's on Ebay

    I agree, if you have no access to someone with the skills minor problems become much more major. I had skill in a whole hatful of well talented shop guys.
    Mine does have the riser Jim and it was a...
  3. Re: ALVAREZ MANDOLIN F Style A900 early 1970's on Ebay

    That’s the slightly more elaborate model than my “700” (obviously) it didn’t exist when I bought mine, in ‘75.
    If it’s within your means, go ahead, I bought mine sight unseen and have never...

    Re: please help

    Time changes with age, I agree with Mike, that’s most likely from the mid-late 70’s at earliest. I wonder if your grandfather had a different one and maybe your mom has gotten them turned around....
  5. Re: Customer selecting specific woods for custom build

    In the custom jewelry world people come in with all sorts of parameters they have to have. Then reality hits! I had one guy that asked about a 2 carat natural (non enhanced, think, torrefied) green...

    Man, I feel that one! Sorry can’t help you but, I’ve found that empty case problem before myself!
    If I had one, I’d burn you a copy!

    I found that a while ago and must have watched it half a dozen times! Great historical footage!

    Re: The Darlings Mandolin switch

    Absolutely right Flatrock, I remember Tom saying that for most of the recordings Dean Webb used an F-5 in the recording tracks, unless that turnip truck backed over my head. I was fascinated by those...

    Re: Mandolin sighting!

    Sorry, too “current” musical pablum for me. A “tweedle” on a bowlback does not say mandolin content to me, a sight gag at best. Sorry, just my opinion.

    I thought that TP was meant for ball end strings, no?
  14. Re: 1964 Guild 1964 F-30 Special Brazilian Rosewood

    This is a fascinating thread for a non luthier but Guild flag waver! Back in the 70’s when I was selling them, I never knew that they had straight dovetails! Wow!

    Sorry, I’ll go to the corner now!

    Bill did “modify” truss rods to titanium on at least a couple (yep, with the old thread) that I know of. As well as repro bridges with titanium studs and thumbscrews, weight saving!

    Re: Halsey mandolin, fiddle and bow

    Yep, those pictures show Bill’s appreciation for beautiful varnish work. I don’t play fiddle but, if I did I am sure a Halsey would be a comfortable instrument to live with.

    My advice is simply play as many instruments as you possibly can, take some real time with each one and see which one trips your trigger. It will be your friend for some time, there’s no reason to...
