    Re: New member saying Hi

    Not surprised the flimsy record is missing, that book was published 47 years ago and my copy (bought new) is nearly that old!

    In the long term the Gibson is likely to hold it’s value whereas the value of the others is likely to decrease. Whether $1000 is a good price for any particular Gibson will depend on its condition...

    Re: R.G. Noyes' Octave mandolin

    I suppose that’s the problem with simply posting a link and a couple of photos. You could be the seller, albeit under another name, or you could have some sort of relationship to the seller.

    Re: Replacement for TI 154Ms

    The JM-11s disappeared several years ago. I’m not aware of anything other than the TIs but a few people who used to use the JM-11s on National RM mandolins seem to be using the d’Addario “Flat Tops”.

    Re: Allesi tuners

    Sorry to hear that Keith is giving up making mandolin tuners but I assume there is a limited market for them compared to guitar. I’m sure you’ll soon find a good home for the wrong’uns.

    What are they like with the strings off? If they are no better after lubrication, they may be badly fitted and the posts binding.

    Nylon strings! Is it a tenor or a large Uke?

    I’ve bought stuff from Thoman on a couple of occasions and have no complaint about their service.
