    Re: Hola HM-3TS and the noob

    That mandolin is sold under dozens of brand names. I had one I picked up a while back on a closeout at Wal-mart and ended up giving it to a young lady that wanted to learn mandolin.

    Re: keeping the mando off your stomach

    I agree Jim. By the way, I almost used a capo on my mandolin tonight but I thought better of it as I was afraid someone from the Cafe might be at the show.
  3. Re: Is this Gibson A-5 model familiar to anyone?

    You are pretty Jim I just don't know what happened to the "sure" that was supposed to be in that message.
  4. Re: Is this Gibson A-5 model familiar to anyone?

    I'm pretty sure Jim posted this in the wrong thread.
  5. Re: Is this Gibson A-5 model familiar to anyone?

    I think there's a lump scroll A-12 in the classifieds right now. It's the same as yours only with F holes. They have been called the Gumby model here as well. As far as the value goes the F5's from...
  6. Re: Where are Pono Octave Mandolins made?

    OK, that thread has the name of the owner with a phone number. It might be a good idea to simply call and have a conversation. You'd have to have an appointment to go there anyway. You could also...

    Source for left-handed mandolins

    We have a member that is looking for a left-handed mandolin. Has anyone got a source other than the two in the Classifieds? Any stores in your area with one in stock?

    Re: Want to Buy - Left Handed Mandolin

    The right place to ask in this format would be the Classifieds under Want To Buy. We try and limit commerce to the Classifieds. If you were to post a message and ask "Does anyone know a retailer that...

    Re: Used Gibsons

    You aren't alone in that aspect. Every now and then I manage to push one out of the nest. One time I was selling three guitars to buy another guitar and my friend Larry said "I never thought of doing...
  13. Re: Marketing and getting your name/brand out.

    Alright, from the outside in and this one is harder to swallow for some than others. There's a reason that the vast majority of mandolins sold at higher prices in this world look pretty much the...

    Re: Help with identifying mandolin

    It's really an F5 shaped object. The back and top appear to be flat on the OP and the one that sold on eBay. It matches well with the newer Ibanez. It also matches well with this:

    Actually this player was using the Marvin V. Frubbish strap placement, named after the guy he learned it from. :cool:

    Take your tenor and hold it up against your belly and face into a corner and play. Now hold it out like a machine gun away from your belly and play into the corner. Does it sound better to you? If...

  20. Re: Vintage photo of a Lyon & Healy two point

    Supertone would be a logical answer. Then the question becomes who built it, Oscar Schmidt or Harmony and that's the tough one to answer. Both used that fret position marker. I think you're right...
  21. Re: Vintage photo of a Lyon & Healy two point

    The fret marker is the first place to start, then the bridge. I think Regal and L&H both used the 9th fret marker position. I don't have all my reference stuff available here.

    I had the joy of standing in Mandolin Bros. and being able to play an entire wall of mandolins before I bought my Gibson. I played more expensive models and kept going back to that same one and...
  24. Re: Vintage photo of a Lyon & Healy two point

    The guitar could be Oscar Schmidt, Harmony or any number of other builders that followed the mandolin 10th fret marker. The pyramid bridge might be an indicator. I don't know when Harmony flattened...
  25. Re: Vintage photo of a Lyon & Healy two point

    The guitar is most likely not an L&H guitar. The position marker at the 10th fret would point elsewhere.
