    Re: This Gibson legit?

    Okay, this doesn't have anything to do with Gibson, but you guys are talking about crazy looking instruments, so I just have to add a link to this guitar on Jake Wildwood's blog.

  5. Re: HOLY BEANBUCKETS! The Colonel's Mandolin Band LP AUTOGRAPHED!

    What an amazing article. He bought all those mandolins for the kids, they traveled around in the van, and most of the records are still sitting at the restaurant in Corbin, KY where they can be had...

    I guess you guys knew it, but I never even knew the Colonel had a Mandolin Band. Wonders never cease.

  7. Re: The mandolin is more than just a folk instrument

    Since I took up the mandolin and started perusing this forum, I have not only learned about so much music I never knew about, but also was reminded of things I haven't listened to in years and years...

  9. Possible bargain 30's Strad-O-Lin near Bend, OR

    My daughter lives out this way, so I look at their craigslist from time to time. Needs work, but they are only asking $150 and who knows they might take less.

    That's pretty amazing. Compared to your cats, my torti Smudge, at 14, is a youngster herself!

    Re: '30 Epiphone Tenor - Mansion on the Hill

    Hah! I need another instrument like I need a hole in the head (as my Dad used to say). :))
    Besides, I am still quite infatuated with my Strad-O-Lin.

    That is a very cool looking and sounding...

    Jim, thank you for resurrecting this epic thread. I went back to the beginning and chuckled my way through three cups of coffee.

  15. Re: What do you do when you're Just. Not. Feeling it?

    This is a big problem for me. When I went to Vermont to get my Strad-O-Lin set up and heard how good it sounded in the hands of someone with a high skill level, i felt very frustrated and impatient...

    Being an extreme newbie, I did not know this about bug spray. But it makes sense. Bug spray is nasty stuff all the way around. What about the natural stuff, lemon eucalyptus and similar essential oil...
