    Re: 11 (eleven!) string thing?

    Blanco Galindo was caretaker governor of Bolivia at the start of the 1930s so the Bolivian connection looks likely.

    Re: Tamco?

    People often accuse me of being difficult - which has nothing to do with facebook. There are plenty of other things I don't do either.

    Problem was, when I tried to view Trevor’s page just before originally posting, I simply got the sign in/login page - don’t ask me why (or bother trying to explain why!). Previous episodes of trying...

    Not the slightest idea. Mandolins generally have eight; assuming they’re all there - a photograph might help or you could look here - https://www.atlasofpluckedinstruments.com/index.htm

    No panic, just as long as things are OK. Unfortunately “normal”, just like “nostalgia”, isn’t quite as good as it used to be!

    Re: Tamco? COMPLETED

    Glad to hear everything’s OK (well perhaps not quite everything), Trevor. It just seemed to me that a six month hiatus on your news page might suggest otherwise.

    Re: interesting pickguard hardware on Ebay Gibson

    Certainly not from 1921. The carpenter jack mounting that comes with the Fishman bridge pickup looks pretty much the same oas the one the o/p refers.

    Re: Need Help Identifying Strange Mandolin

    Doesn’t look that old. Possibly an amateur build by a competent woodworker? The neck is too short for the body. The bridge looks to be in the right place but it’s too far up the body.

    I did know a chap many years ago who bought a Martin D45. He carried it around on the rear carrier of his motorbike - sideways. If you try it, be careful to avoid parked cars.

    Re: interesting pickguard hardware on Ebay Gibson

    It says “all original” according to a 20 year old appraisal. Well, I’ve never seen one like that so I suppose it is, although that’s not to say that it hasn’t been altered in the last 20 years. Looks...

    Thanks for that - I don’t do “facebook” but I did try the website link before posting and it took me nowhere; seems to be back up again now.

    Anyone in the nether regions of the UK been to TAMCO recently? Trevor has been very quiet recently and it’s coming up to 6 months since anything on his website changed. Hope everything’s OK
