  1. Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    In the Scottish Gaelic dialect Google says it means spur. Google is not fluent in typo.
  2. Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    I'm not sure I would take that if he paid me $200.00 to take it.

    Re: Tax Day Cometh

    This article is a year old. More states may have been added. I doubt any went away.

    Re: Gibson mando date and model?

    Sometimes I wonder how much I've forgotten over the years. Martin is free to wonder the same thing.

    That's a great site and the tool is great as well.

    Are they available in worm over configuration as well?
  9. Re: Do Martin mandolins fetch higher or lower prices than Gibsons

    Rare doesn't always equate to value. If you look at what has driven the mandolin, acoustic guitar and banjo markets in the last 60 years or so it has been the instruments that were the choice of the...
  10. Lyon & Healy Calton Case in Classifieds

    I missed this totally. NFI. For anyone with an L&H that they want a Calton case for take a look at this ad. I'm sure there have been others built but I've never seen one.

    Re: Gibson mando date and model?

    Harmony ceased production in 1975. They were importing instruments right before the end. I've seen Batwings with the normal ratio tuners so I know they weren't used the entire production time. I...

    Re: spinning tuner button

    Sage advice. Every time I think I can short cut something like this I get burned.

    Re: Gibson mando date and model?

    The Batwing tuners place it at the end of the Harmony Company's manufacturing days. Very late 60's very early 70's. The H35 piece of the number is the model number, nobody has ever found the...

    Re: Gibson mando date and model?

    OK, so Gibson was known to sit on unfinished instruments and sell them at a later time. Perhaps building larger batches than they had orders for. Here is a 1941 Gibson F5 (a different model) but it...

    So, he ordered it after WWII? Is there any remnants of a label of any kind inside the sound hole?

    Re: Gibson mando date and model?

    The headstock on the OP's is bound, the logo appears to be inlaid and the bridge wheels are totally different. The bridge could have been changed but I'd be at least looking for the bound headstock....

  19. Re: Help with exporting Gibson TG-00 - Dot Inlays

    They may not know what that means. I believe that antique instruments may be exempt from needing the permit. You and I know what you are saying. Ask if these rules would apply to a tenor guitar built...

    Re: Gibson mando date and model?

    Actually the Harmony has no serial number because Harmony didn't put serial numbers on their instruments. That is a model number. Look inside the Harmony with a flashlight. Are there any other...

  23. Re: A attic founded mandolin. From 1920-30

    About the only thing the linked mandolin and this one have in common is the flat back.
  24. Re: A attic founded mandolin. From 1920-30

    Then Nick is probably right about origin. The bigger thing here is that it's not a bowlback, it's a flat back. That could move it closer to 1920. The doubled up tailpiece would also be a clue. Then...
