    Re: String shortage!?

    I don’t know how it was then but, I would like to think people helped each other out where they could.

    To the OP- I have a “new” box of Elixir Medium, Nanoweb. If those will work for you, they’re...

    Re: String shortage!?

    I suspect it’s relevant because, during WW2 most manufacturing was to support the war effort. Something called the War Production Board. I would venture to guess that would include the production of...

    Re: Early Collings MT2 Mandolins

    I had what I consider an early one, had the old style tailpiece, Schaller Tuners, I don’t remember if it had the ribbon or a ring inlay. I think it was 124 or really close to it. It had the letter...

    Re: Changed back to nickel-silver frets

    I have read that Bill Collings didn’t use EVO fret wire on his mandolins because he didn’t like the tone it produced. It was here on the ‘Cafe that I read it, I don’t care to put the effort into...

    Re: Sultans of Swing tab

    Mandozine.com has it.

    Now if I could figure out the opening guitar to Money for Nothing, I’d be quite happy. I’ve been struggling with it for about 2 months.

    Good luck

    Re: Are All Lloyd Loars Dropping In Price?

    Re: Are All Lloyd Loars Dropping In Price?

    The refinish was done in ‘36 and it looks like a beautiful mandolin. I never would have guessed a refinish would have such an impact on price.

    Re: Woodsong's Lutherie

    I can say that Matt Bergdorf has done all my mandolin work for the last 15+ years. Within the last year he did a refret and a really professional speed neck on my Collings. As well, he has done a...

    Re: Looking for opinions of Big Muddy mandolins

    The M4 I ordered from Mike came well set-up, with the strings slacked and bridge taped in place. The neck profile is more of a “C” shape and I think it is comfortable to play. There is also a...
  15. Re: Mandolinhut or Mandolin store demo lick from the early 2000s?

    I may be way off track here but, the only thing I can remember from that time is Mickey Cochrane / Folk of the Wood.

    Re: Any info on Flatiron Mandolins?

    This is true, the name is not related to “pancake” mandolins. In Boulder, you see the impressive Flatiron. Steve Carlson grew up in Boulder and hiked around the Flatirons. This is where the name came...
