    Re: Gigs Cancelled - Health and Safety

    Don, I fully agree. My comment was a general and sarcastic take on the matter, not at all aimed at anyone here on the forum.

    Re: Gigs Cancelled - Health and Safety

    Thanks, Don.
    I'd suggest to isolate the panic makers.
  4. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Bill, with all due respect, I believe you're missing the point; please forgive my frankness. The scrolls may vary on the original F5s, but (e. g.) hardly any or even none of them has the binding...
  5. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    As for the „ugly scrolls” and a few other (for most people) minor aesthetical things, I believe Jan is right. Other than that many of the recent Gibsins are well made and certainly good sounding.

    Re: Should I be insulted?

    Cats are generally not very likely to know much about Kant's categorical imperative. Hence, no, don't be insulted.

    Re: Fern Loar F5 Attic Find

    Grant IMHO the mandolin pictured is an early '30s (non-Loar) F5 rather than the attic find. Worth's other F5?

    Re: Chris Thile's Loars

    Loar's personal F5 (#75315) received its Virzi as a retrofit, which is obvious from the narrower back binding telling me that the back was sawn off at some later point, as with so many other Virzi...

    One is, indeed, #75316, the other one is #75318.

    Re: Mandolin study

    Hi Slinky, it seems to me like there's hardly a way around Cologne; here's their website: https://www.hfmt-koeln.de/en/study-program/master-of-music/master-of-music-mandolin.html

    Re: Lloyd Loar's Pick

    I don’t know for sure 100%, but the Hornex company advertises their vulcanized fiber, as it it is still quite traditional. Here is a link:

    Re: Lloyd Loar's Pick

    Mike, for what it’s worth, that pick guard material on those L&H Styles A, B, C is called vulcanized fiber and is still available (at least here in Germany).

    Re: Screws for tuner buttons

    But then again, all string posts measure about one inch these days, instead of 29/32” (23mms), which would be the „correct” Loar length. (Okay, okay, it‘s not the length that counts.;))

  15. Re: How does this happen to a 1924 A-2 at the factory?

    In book, they are the "wrong" tuners. Those wiggle end tuners were largely passé by early 1923 and are thus untypical for 1924. Not sure, what the story is here. If they were installed at the...

    Re: Your Thoughts On D'Addario XT Strings

    Almost a similar experience here. Not really tubby, but somewhat muted from the get-go. But the strings stay like that for quite a while. Probably a good choice for players, who tend to corrode...

    Thanks for those pics, Lowtone. You got a beauty there.
    Now I see, the frets were apparently installed flush with the fingerboard, the binding was glued and then scraped away between the frets...

    Could you imagine posting pictures?
    As for the frets, my Style C has black binding around the (black ebony) fingerboard. But the (non-original) frets' ends are visible, the slots sawn-through. I...

  23. Re: Help appreciated! My old Loar blueprints burned up.!!!

    Bj, as far as I know, the blueprints available from Elderly are more accurate than the StewMac version. They were drawn and at least updated once by Adrian Minarovic, HoGo on the MC.

    Re: Allesi tuners

    Steve, may I ask, which year Nicolo made those faulty tuners? I‘m asking, since Nicolo changed his approach to a more sturdy design in, I believe, 2012.

    Re: Damage to Loar A5???

    Makes perfect sense, as the body is more of an A-model, which is a tad larger than an F-model body (minus scrolls and point, which was the approach of the modern A5s Gibson made in the 90s and early...
