    Re: Gibson mandolin face repair needed.

    Actually, I think that is no longer true. Jerry put out a new video last week he has over 60 instruments in his shop now and a huge waiting list that goes back two years. In addition he has three...

    Re: Fan-fret mandocello build

    Well that is a valid point of view. But I happen to like the sound of a K-5 style (Gibson nomenclature) mandocello just fine.. Some years ago I made 4 mandocellos out of arch top guitars and I...
  3. Re: Hacked, Dude construction pages down

    Sorry, what rotten luck!! So it must have been done solely out of spite or something? So many low-lifers floating around the world these days! Good luck at getting back up. Host provider needs...
  4. Re: Gibson Master Model vs. Ellis F5 with all of his highest opti

    Well this topic has been beaten to death in many previous strings on this (and many other forums) and it will never be resolved because musicians (regardless of the instruments they play from...
  5. Re: Gibson Master Model vs. Ellis F5 with all of his highest opti

    That's fine too! I was just giving my perspective. Good luck with your search!

    I will mention one other opinion as it has come up repeatedly in this thread. Again, this is my opinion.

    I think...

    Re: Hope this never happens again

    These things happen to humans. About 35+ years ago I noticed what looked like a wallet as I got past the entrance ramp on the Ronald Reagan Highway west in Cincinnati -- I somehow managed to get to...
  7. Re: Gibson Master Model vs. Ellis F5 with all of his highest opti

    Well I've always wanted to own a Gibson Master Model or a DMM -- but they would probably not be enough (or any better) than the regular Gibson F-5s that I currently own. Many people like the Ellis...

    Re: The end of my playing days.

    Very sad --- I'd been expecting it.

    For many years I was lucky enough to be "e-pals" with Ivan -- I so much enjoyed reading a fresh email from Ivan with morning coffee often more than one --Ivan...

    Re: 1902 Martin Bowlback mandolin

    That is about the price I might be interested in. Of course the seller would surely see it much differently?
    But I just wonder if there is ANY market for a used American bowl back though?

    I...

    1902 Martin Bowlback mandolin

    This Martin bowl back mandolin is very clean and the original leather case is amazingly well preserved. Not sure about whether the price is "right" though?

    Hi Lisa,

    I know several individuals who have David's email address but might be reluctant to give it out on a public forum like this. I suggest you message him via his Facebook page -- he is very...
  12. Re: Article: The 1978 Bob Givens Interview from The Guitars Frien

    That sounds like the same article I am thinking about.
  13. Interesting for sure and a trip back to the 70s...

    Interesting for sure and a trip back to the 70s and 80s -- a time warp. But there is another long narrative story about R.L. Givens that exists too. It used to be on line in the early days of the...

    Re: Your average $150,000 guitar

    Two of them! Well hush my mouth then! So I can only imagine that those guitars must be outright killers. What do you think the value of them is on today's market and how do they compare tone-wise...

    For sure! I would take one of those first re-issues of the Advanced Jumbo that he made -- this was in the mid-late 1990s. They had Brazilian Rosewood back and sides from a stash that he had saved ...

    Thanks for that link! Those are beautiful mandolin tuners for a very reasonable price -- and the shipping is very reasonable too! I was about to order a set for an A-style mandolin but notice that...
