  1. Re: Gibson Must Now Face Antitrust Litigation in Heritage Case

    Alessi mentions the Loar archtops of the 20's. So suppose someone builds a copy of one of those, an early L5? (it's been done). Gibson doesn't currently make that or plan to (unless by chance there...

    Re: NMC Bass preamp

    Hi, Mark!
    I'm sure the Headway is top notch, but you have to see our campsite at Pagosa. Pretty primitive. And part of the concept is to be able to shlep the whole rig around the campground. The...
  6. Re: Gibson Must Now Face Antitrust Litigation in Heritage Case

    How much of a threat could Heritage be? I know John Sabastion plays them but I've never seen anyone else although they're obviously out there.

    Re: NMC Bass preamp

    Thanks Brian. I hadn't seen those.
    Doesn't look like it will blend a piezo and mic but still sounds like a good option. There's the Baggs Mix Pro that is supposed to do the blend.
    However I played...

    Yeah, Micro Cube's have a preamp. I'm trying to use something that doesn't.

    NMC Bass preamp

    At Pagosa Folk and Rock and Roll Festival I met someone who played a uke bass through a Bose bluetooth speaker that sounded fantastic. She had a preamp but I didn't see what kind.
    So my wife Pat and...

    Pics from the Past

    While there's a lull in the action, you might want to go to the Bluegrass section and check out Darryl's Post a Pic from the Past post.
    I've taken an interest in the early days of bluegrass and...
  11. Re: This just showed up in my inbox re: Gibson guitars

    Let's bring Prince into this discussion.
    After years of thinking he was playing a Telecaster even with that horrible looking tortoise guard I just read it was a Hohner!
    To me that seems like...
  12. Re: This just showed up in my inbox re: Gibson guitars

    I can have an over active imagination sometimes and I've imagined being the lawyer trying to defend the rise of the individual builder.
    I would have 5 exhibits, a teens F4 to show where the F5...

    Sticky: Re: Loar Picture of the Day

    Emily was able to catch up with Tim O'brien at a festival in New Mexico and he graciously played the Karasik. It was filmed by Wesley Six, the videographer for the festival and really captured the...
  14. Re: This just showed up in my inbox re: Gibson guitars

    I actually want to see them do well. I support American made products (when I can). Just make good stuff without telling others they can't make them too.
  15. Re: This just showed up in my inbox re: Gibson guitars

    You shouldn't let your CNC decide the shape of your instrument. If Northfield can make a nice looking scroll then you'd think Gibson could.
  16. Re: This just showed up in my inbox re: Gibson guitars

    It's hard to imagine they would put any legal effort toward mandolins when they are basically ceasing production.
  17. Re: This just showed up in my inbox re: Gibson guitars

    I'd love to see them come out with a more historically correct F-5. Seems like it would be important for them to get it right.
    Seems they would occasionally put a very good copy out like Sierra...

    Re: Duffey's Country Gentleman mandolin

    So the blonde F-12 or 7 or whatever was stolen. Must be out there somewhere and would be very recognizable.

    As was suggested in another thread I'm reading Neil Rosenberg's Bluegrass history and there are photo's in there. Blurry B&W photo's.

    There's another Kentucky Treasure video on the Osbornes that's just as good.

    Well, this gets my curiosity up anyway.
    Doyle says he doesn't remember what that mandolin was but it had to be a very early replica, as early or earlier than the oldest Randy Woods but I've seen...
