    Re: new questions

    It is very true that feedback from a better quality mandolin causes a person to practice more - you keep wanting that good feedback, and you keep trying harder and harder to get it. Positive...

    Re: Ebay: maple top mandolin

    I am curious about it, if it was closer it would be worth a road trip to see it, but it's about 4 1/2 hours away. Too bad - it could be interesting.
  4. Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    If it was $500 or so I might give it consideration - that would be a price I could afford and I am (casually) looking for a 1920s Gibson. But needing work at the price they are asking, no thanks.

    I too am looking for a used Gibson (but casually, if I happen on one for the right price, fine, if not, okay too,) but to answer your question, Yes - I bought my Collings used for a good price,...

    Re: Ibanez Buyer beware

    My Larrivee guitar came with a whole little pamphlet in the case explaining proper humidity levels and how to keep the humidity there. Was pretty important to Larrivee.

    Now it will be in (sort of) driving distance for those of us in Ohio - a (long) one-day "road trip!"
  12. Re: On eBay, 2007 Eastman MD615 with "some" wear

    And what's with all of the scratches on the headstock? And I shipped a guitar to Boston for $60.00 First Class. So $144 is WAY high IMHO.
  13. Re: We have a 3-way race: Collings vs Pava vs Gilchrist

    I'm glad I don't have to make the decision - I've never played a Gil, so no opinion there, but I own a Collings and a Pava, and I love both, (although as mentioned above, both sound different -...

    Pictures of the headstock (front and back,) and any labels inside the oval hole will help with identification. Thanks!
  17. Re: What Does Vinaccia and Phillips have in Common ?

    Un"restored", I might (as a bowlback lover) have been interested in it, but now it would be crazy to have to undo the "repairs" and get it back to its (near) original state.
