  1. Re: Why are good mandolins more expensive than good guitars?

    You're right, nobody seems to be talking about the Adamas mandolins, but the Adamas guitars certainly have their fans. They have always been expensive, in fact, I can't ever remember seeing one...
  2. Re: These are the tools of my trade today...

    I once had an electric sitar in my "arsenal".....trouble is, it kept finding its way onto recordings!

    Re: Jazz 5 Roberts/Tiny Moore Mandolin

    IIRC, someone recently posted on the Cafe who had a Roberts Tiny Moore mandolin......seems like within the last 6 months or so.....
  4. Re: These are the tools of my trade today...

    Probably not the first to mention this, but the upper horn on the Breedlove looks a lot like Pacman! -- not a bad thing!
  5. Re: NMC rare relic (re-purposed autoharp body)

    I totally missed that! I guess they removed the button assembly to add a couple angel decals.....
  6. Re: Why are good mandolins more expensive than good guitars?

    In general, I agree with the statement that a good mandolin costs twice what a good guitar costs. Like Eric said, I guess it would depend on how you define "good." For example, a Paul Reed Smith...

    Re: UPS rant

    I guess it goes without saying if you order something this time of year the shippers have the best excuse of all for something being late -- IT'S CHRISTMASTIME!

    On an unrelated matter, I was on...
  8. Re: NMC rare relic (re-purposed autoharp body)

    My sister loves any kind of meditation/therapy/chakras, healers, etc. and finds enjoyment and peace from the daily pursuit of such. OTOH, I'm not sure an $800 autoharp is the answer, but I think we...

    Re: Damage to Loar A5???

    what happened to the pickguard?

    I also love the look of the bound snakehead peghead!

    Re: Is this a real Larson?

    Or, as I once overheard two women asking a vendor at a flea market..."Is this pewter?" His seasoned reply, "Do you want it to be pewter?"

  12. Re: Circa 1940 Mandolin- Flat Top- recessed tuners- very odd.

    Very interesting.....and odd! They don't even match the peghead shape.

    Re: Mandolin Orange Information

    Might take a few emails, but how about some of the mega used record stores that advertise on eBay with 50,000 listings? Most of those stores have 20X that amount not listed. Or, maybe they are...

    Re: 1930's SS Stewart Mandolin

    Yes, click on the catalog page and enlarge. It tells the woods used in construction......maple back and sides, spruce top, bone nut, arched top and back. Sounds like they were trying to make a...

    Re: Country Music Special on PBS

    As an aside, somewhere online I found a picture of a store in Japan that had a wall of Monroe look-alike mandolins, complete with the wear, the gouged name and the broken off curly-cue. Does anyone...
  16. Re: Curt Mangan Monel medium string price increase?

    12 sets would be 3 lifetime's worth for me........seriously.

    I've pointed out things like this before to a certain well-known vintage guitar dealer who will remain nameless.....his response, "no biggee, knock a dollar off the price!"

    Re: 1932 F5 copy

    I've always associated the tuners with "pressed on" gears, commonly called "riveted" as WWII era. Does anyone have more specific dating info on those tuners? If original, it would bring the 1932...

    Re: 1930's SS Stewart Mandolin

    This one has the "coolness factor" that most old Harmony's and Regal's lack. All black with the deco peghead and guard with HARD case. Imagine trying to locate that pickguard if it were missing. I...

    Re: Loar’s Loar!

    Just my opinion, but I guess next to Monroe's Loar I would say Loar's Loar would have that additional "x-factor" in terms of extra appeal -- not that I would turn down any Loar if one crossed my path...
