    In my quest to help the OP I forgot to mention what a great video this is. Andy Irvine, Paul Brady, and I believe thatís Donal Lunny on bouzouki. Good stuff!

  3. Re: Help identifying the Gibson Mando in this YouTube performance

    Oops! I guess I have an A! No pearl on my headstock. I'm pretty sure mine is from 1912.
  4. Re: Help identifying the Gibson Mando in this YouTube performance

    Patience is the key word. I found mine for under 1k. Iím not an expert in valuations, but thereís a lot of factors that go into pricing a vintage instrument. Iím sure if you hold tight for the night,...
  5. Re: Help identifying the Gibson Mando in this YouTube performance

    I would say that it is an A-1. I have one and I highly recommend it for your style.
    I would also recommend to be patient and a bit cautious when buying one. Youíre dealing with a hundred year old...

    Re: Fingering Technique

    It might be strange. I donít know. I think I might agree with you. The strange part for me is analyzing two seconds of my playing when I can go a few hours without thinking twice. I was just trying...

    Re: New owner of Pomeroy #243 Oval Hole

    Thatís a beauty Russ! I was trying to buy it myself, but you beat me to it! I love the violin edges, the headstock scroll, the finish! I hope it plays like butter!
  8. Re: Hello All. I'm new here, first post. Loving the mandolin.

    I ditched an HD28-V with no regrets when I decided to get more seriously into mandolin.
    I have a D-15 that I donít think Iíll ever part ways with because of sentimental reasons, but
    Iíd like to...

    Re: Martin Style 20 Interest

    I need to get that book! That cross references with Mike Longsworthís book. There were two Style 15ís made in 1929, but they werenít in the catalog until 1930. Martin went all in with the Style 20 in...

  11. Re: Please help! Newbie looking for bowlback to learn on!

    Yeah, I kinda figured others had a similar experience, but it’s nice to know I’m not the only one. At least now I know what to look for in tuners on these old bowlbacks. I do like playing mine, but...

    Re: Martin Style 20 Interest

    Oh, and the serial number and style might be on the neck block, not on the inside of the back like other Martins. It might be hard to see in poor lighting.

  15. Re: Please help! Newbie looking for bowlback to learn on!

    I looked into this one when it was first posted. Unfortunately I didnít save the additional photos. It looked to be in decent shape, but I didnít like the tuners. I have a similar Washburn with the...

    Re: Strings for Nerve Damaged Hands

    I lot of old time fiddlers use alternate tunings like GDAD or GDGD and many other combinations. I think itís worth experimenting with. I think you can also cross tune without necessarily having to...

    Re: Help with case color

    I like black, but I donít let my cases/instruments do much sun bathing. Heat is unavoidable if youíre playing and traveling in the summer. I donít think the color matters that much. Maybe hot pink or...

    A lot of carriers are operating near “peak” conditions. Since the shutdown began online sales for everything are through the roof. Delays should be expected. I wouldn’t worry too much, it will...
