    Re: Trading

    In a word, yes. I tend to think of resale or trade value as roughly 70% of current replacement value, not original sale price.

    Re: Mandolin recommendation for new player

    If you have no intention of playing bluegrass in a jam any time soon, you might consider a flattop mandolin. Alfons suggested a Mid-Missouri/Big Muddy (my first mandolin), and I have also owned a...

    Re: Troublesome Creek

    I love flattop mandolins. I started on a used Mid-Missouri and have subsequently purchased a Flatiron 1N, a Gypsy Vagabond, and two Redline Travelers. I even later custom ordered a Poe Scout with all...

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    Sue, now that you have reached your third mandolin, it is probably the appropriate time to warn you that one's fifth mandolin typically costs as much as the previous four put together.

    Re: NMD Pomeroy Oval

    Expect to hear from Mike Black’s attorney. :))

    Seriously, that Pomeroy sounds sparkling and lively as well as full and meaty. I hope you find some other tunes in the bottom of it.

    Re: $1000 Budget

    It was more fun when your budget was $1500. ;)

    If I was interested in playing bluegrass, and had $1K to spend on an F5, I’d be looking for a Kentucky KM1000 like this one:

    Sue, are you familiar with the resonator mandolin?

    I thought that was the goal . . . after you’ve bought yours.

    Re: What's the real difference?

    The established quality of the materials employed and the person(s) working with them.
  12. Re: PRETTY Collings Custom MF FLAME looks like a real auction on

    With 37 bids already and over 2 days left to go, I’d expect a lot more movement before the auction closes.
  13. Re: PRETTY Collings Custom MF FLAME looks like a real auction on

    I would expect this mandolin to be valued around ~$4K if it were listed in the classifieds.

    Re: Need mandolin recommendations a-style

    Interestingly, my first reaction when reading these words was that you wouldn't want a Collings. My MT was bright and cut to the point where it could be strident for solo play. Then I opened the...
  16. Re: How to clean and polish Varnish on my New Pava Pro

    Does your Pava have a date on the label? In the quotation above, Tom Ellis cited six months as an estimated time for his varnish finish to cure, and I’d be reluctant to add an armrest before that...
  17. Re: How to clean and polish Varnish on my New Pava Pro

    I agree with pops1 and would only add that new varnish can be particularly vulnerable. I don’t know when Pava and her team completed your A5, or what varnish they are using, but that finish could...

    I’m not sure which I liked more, the sweet sound of that Pava or the satisfied smile at the end!

    That top is stunning, Dan, and I know the sacrifices you were willing to make to acquire that Pava. I hope that you play the frets off of it in good health! :mandosmiley:

  22. Re: How did the "curl" on the mandolin body evolve?

    Yes, old Gibson’s bad taste in design is at fault for creating some of the most iconic mandolins, banjos, and guitars (acoustic and electric) over the last 120 years. Gibson has had (and continues to...

    The modern mandolin as developed by Orville Gibson borrowed heavily from the violin tradition at the end of the Victorian Period in which ornamentation was an important aesthetic consideration. It...
