  2. Re: Anyone near Camarillo want to make a few bucks?

    Oh, I've gone back and forth with this individual already. He does not wish to lift a finger to ship these cases.

    And sure, I could lecture people on how to conduct their lives, but after I do,...

    Re: Eastman ERM El Rey

    Well, perhaps I shoulda said "shrunken solidbody electric guitar" to be more precise. But I only learned about the El Rey guitar in the process of writing my review. It's not as though someone took...

    Re: Help with ID'ing a Mandolin

    The action is high, even though the bridge has been tipped over on its side (it looks as though someone might have done that deliberately in an attempt to lower the action). This means the neck is...

    Pretty sure it was standard 13.875" although I didn't have a tape measure handy. I submitted the review and will post a link when it's live.

    Re: Remic microphones

    Well, I found a DPA for 1/2 price at Guitar Center, so I went ahead and bought it. It came with the guitar clip so I also picked up a fiddle clip on eBay. Rather than an "instrument-specific" mic, I...

    Standard XLR on both ends, or is one of them a mini?

    Re: Eastman ERM El Rey

    I had a chance to play one of these today at the Fretboard Journal HQ. I offered to write a review, so I'll have to be tight-lipped here until the review is posted.

    Re: Man I need a good tuner...

    I've started using Airyware on a smartphone.

    One thing about playing a Lyon & Healy Style A mandola is that there is absolutely no good place to put a clip-on tuner.

    Re: Interesting case

    I got an M&W double violin case for $20 at a local violin shop's garage sale. Not as nice as this. I had a luthier modify it a bit and now it holds my Lyon & Healy mandola.
  15. Giuseppe Gandolfi bowlback (Sistema de Meglio)

    Picked up a Giuseppe Gandolfi bowlback today (someone donated it to the mandolin orchestra). It is in decent shape and it shouldn't take much to make it playable.

  19. Paul Buskirk's HOT PICKIN' and the mystery 5-string

    In 1975, Paul Buskirk released an album on Stoneway Records called HOT PICKIN', featuring a 5-string electric mandolin. It must be heard to be believed.

    Well, I knocked a corner off my fiddle once, and paid someone about $200 to carve, grain-match, color-match, and glue on a teensy piece of spruce. So if you quoted me $300 to replace a headstock...

    Re: NMD Gibson pre-1910 H-1 Mandola

    I'd expect anything with an inlaid pickguard to also have a pineapple tailpiece. That's probably a replacement TP. If you know a luthier you might be able to get a custom bridge carved with the...
