    Re: Fiebing's red leather dye

    Yes, Fiebings turns more pink over time. You might try the oxblood.

    Re: Ups insurance a ripoff

    I think damage to packages is the exception and not the rule. I don't think there is a single shipping company that is indifferent to how packages are treated but I do know instrument companies and...

    Re: Anyone seen this before

    Yes, on solid body electrics with a set neck. A lot going on there. The neck has come unglued from the pocket, pulled up and separated from the extension. I wonder if the neck was finished before...

    Re: Electric Mandolin Buzzing

    Here is what you want. Ground everything directly to the volume pot including the shielding. Do not create a loop. With all that said, that pickup is going to hum no matter what because of its...

    Re: DiMarzio recommendations please?

    ProTrack DP188 has been the go to for a lot of builders. I have used the DP184 for those that requested a heavier "rock" pickup. I believe the DP188 is standard on a Mann instrument. Personally, I...

    Re: C G D A tuned electric mandolin

    That's why I use a 14.5" scale. You can tune CGDA or GDAE without issue.
  12. Re: Replacement bridge for Epiphone MandoBird VIII?

    Roger,
    I can make you a brass one but I haven't any plans to have bridges plated anytime soon. The minimum cost is so high now that it puts the price out of reach based on demand. I could also post...

    Re: Stew-mac prices

    It depends on the product, the amount of the increase and my customer, but my point isn't about having to make those decisions. My point is about putting speculative information out there about a...

    Personally, I don't like bashing, or even putting speculation out there, about any business simply because I don't agree with their pricing. If they had terrible customer service then I could see...

    Re: Refinishing a Flatiron F5?

    When I was doing a lot of trading, I had Mike refinish the F5 as well as a Gibson Sheraton A. I don't know if he is still taking on that type of work but if I were to get another one then he'd be...

    Re: Refinishing a Flatiron F5?

    To the naysayers. This was a 1992 Flatiron stripped by previous owner and refinished with varnish by Mike Black. It sounded excellent when done and the value went up since it was a varnish finish...

    Why not use the old mahogany mantelpiece? That's probably the best piece of lumber that you have mentioned. My suggestion would be to start with reading Melvyn Hiscocks book on building an electric...

    Finally got this wrapped up last night. I've had it 90% done for sometime but been doing final tweeking on it and learning to play it for the last month or so. 23" scale, Almuse soap bar pickups,...

    Re: 5 string tenor

    I assume these are yours? Do you have a preference? That last one seems pretty wide. Is it a converted 3/4 guitar? The ones I have seen with that wide of spacing tend to be conversions.

    5 string tenor

    I have been commissioned to build a five string tenor guitar. The buyer originally asked for a 1.5625" nut but that seemed wide to me. I was thinking between 1.375 and 1.5". Anyone presently play...
  25. Re: Tenor Guitar Question: Convert an old guitar or pull the pick

    I'd find an existing electric tenor guitar and swap the pickups in to it. That would be the quickest and easiest thing to do. You could then sell the intact body to fund the project or recoup some...
