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

    The faux finish job is pretty good, too. Avoids the 'grilled mandolin' look of later attempts.

    Re: Is this a real Larson?

    It is most absolutely, definitely, likely, probably not a Larson.

    Which means: there's a (snowball's) chance (in hexx) that it might be a Larson.

    Which around here translates into it could...

  10. Re: Ditson Victory.. in need of TLC, need advice

    Marty, I've always been under the impression that Vega made these for the Ditson label.

    A lot of details closely resemble the Vega mandolins of the time...moreso than L+H. Check and see if...

    Re: Help ID approx date on L&H bowlback?

    Don't even risk it if you don't know about the strings. You can get a extra light set from Just Strings or Big City strings for ~$5. Lady S is right. Too many bowls have been ruined by "new...

    Coltrane comes to mind. Abundant natural talent. Practiced 10-12 hours a day.

    Of all the many examples of jive-axx trickery that we've seen over the years here, for some reason these fauxonators are among the very worst.

    I have a Regal mandola I got a few years back and enjoy it quite a lot. Quite resembles this...though I'd second Jim on confirming the scale length.

    Re: Introducing Michele Vinaccia

    There seems to have been at least a couple other Marateas claiming to have studied with the famous "Allievo" di Vinaccia: Domenico and Raffaele.

    Perhaps there was a Figli Maratea, too. Or maybe...

    Re: 1902 Giovanni de Meglio Neapolitan

    Pity about the top crack on the DeMeglio. Likely not too difficult of a fix and the bridge replacement is an easy task.

  24. Re: A Vinaccia mandolin for export to USA ?

    My guess is that it was very likely made in the States and the 'cunning marketing ploy' is actually that of the Ebay seller trying to pass it off as a Vinaccia.

    Here's a photo of a Gibson 12 string from 1963, apparently.

    Does it resemble the Mexican or New Yorkan...
