  2. Re: Gibson Master Model vs. Ellis F5 with all of his highest opti

    OP:

    You sound like you have money.
    Take a trip to Nashville, visit both Carter's and Gruhn's.
    If you can't find something you like between them, you ain't findin' it.
  3. Re: Gibson Master Model vs. Ellis F5 with all of his highest opti

    OP:

    BEFORE you buy, have you had the opportunity to TRY both models?

    Have you played many (any?) Gibson F models previously?

    Will you be comfortable with the narrow neck (1 1/16" at the...

    Re: Lighter strings for beginners?

    My opinion only:

    Yes, try light gauge strings, and set your action "down" a bit, as you begin to learn. Your fingers need to develop strength and a fretting hand that hurts due to medium strings...

    Re: High action - is this fixable?

    1. Check the neck relief. Fret the 4th pair of strings at fret 1 and fret 12, then note how much "free space" is at fret 7. Shouldn't be much more than you can slip a piece of paper through.

    Re: $200 to dress mandolin frets? Ouch!

    I wouldn't pay $200 for a fret "dress".
    Plex machine, or no Plex machine.
    And I can afford it.

    Re: Your average $150,000 guitar

    That's a very interesting guitar, and the custom work is beautifully done, but I would reckon it would add perhaps 150% of the cost of a "regular" Super 400 (I don't know what an S400 sells for, so...

    Re: basic recording setup

    You need:
    - A USB audio interface with at least 2 XLR inputs (or 4)
    - 2 condenser mics (one large-diaphragm, one small/medium)
    - mic stands and XLR cables
    - CLOSED EAR headphones
    - A decent...

    Re: Refret for Gibson F9

    Looks to me like you need the first 10 done. The rest I'd "let go for now".
    I wouldn't pay for "the whole thing".

    Are you in the city?
    I can't stand big cities, myself.
    I last set foot in NYC the last day of my job (2012). Haven't been back and no plans to do so.

  15. Re: Question about a Flatiron A model oval hole

    I'm going to -guess- that's a Nashville Flatiron, produced near the end of the "Flatiron era" of Montana-made and Nashville-made Flatirons.

    It appears to have the Gibson/Grover tuners on it.

    If you buy a Steinberg USB audio interface, it will come with Cubase production software which will mate perfectly to the hardware. All you need.

    Re: Gibson F-5 on eBay?

    It's a Gibson F-5 from the 70's.

    The ebay ad says it's refinished.

    Looks like it had a bad case of "binding deterioration" (i.e., crumbling), so all the binding was replaced (the replacement...

    Re: Carbon Fiber Mandolin

    Mr. Jacobson, your prototype both looks and sounds great.

    By "sounding" great, it's very reminiscent of a "wooden" instrument, not quite exactly the same, but very, very close.
