    Re: Can anyone identify this mandolin?

  6. Re: Replacement tuners for 2003 Fender FM-52e?

    We've actually heard about tuners without the post bored before. I'm starting to wonder if it was the same set.

    If you want to know more about this company there was a book written by Cafe member Hubert Pleijsier named Washburn Prewar Instrument Styles. It is available on Amazon and elsewhere. It has catalog...
  12. Re: Help with identifying old bowlback mandolin

    American Conservatory was a Lyon and Healy brand name. That same mandolin was sold with and without labels for the trade so a teacher or school or retailer could sell it as its own product. Yours has...

    I've been using Boveda Humidipaks for years. I also have them in the humidipak saddle bags. Zero problems.
  17. Re: Wondering over brassposts on my Mandolinetto

    Post a picture of the current tuners.

    Re: Replacing Reverse Tuners...

    Post a picture of your tuners. Some manufacturers make them in the same worm over/worm under configuration that turn the right way.
