    Re: EM-150 questions

    Here's a picture of another pre-1940 EM-150:180838
    I think that the mandolin in question is an earlier one, because the pickup isn't bound, while later examples had the binding like this one.

    Re: EM-150 questions

    No, that's a pretty stock looking Em-150, made between 1936 and 1940. The screws in the top hold the "Charlie Christian" pickup in place, and the knobs were on the opposite sides during this period. ...

    I think that the days of getting great deals on Ebay are pretty much over, especially when the auctions are posted here.

  8. I think something's wrong with my mandolin.

    Last night, my band played an outdoor event in Hamilton, Montana. It was about 55 degrees when we started playing at 5, and was about 42 when we finished at 9.
    I knew something was odd when I pulled...

    Re: 1919 gibson a3 #mandolin

    Without seeing the serial number, I'm going to say that it's a 1922 A-3. I've seen others where the truss rod cover obscures the inlay. I think that Gibson probably used the existing peghead overlays...

    Re: '17 A-1 Bridge

    I had a CA bridge fitted to my 1919 A2, and ended up putting the original back on. The mandolin just lost some of that overtone-y goodness that I like so much about it. It's nice to have the CA...

    Re: Old Gibson A mandolin copy?

    It looks like a Japanese-built mandolin from the early 70's to me. If it's playable, it seems like a good deal.

    Re: Case for Gibson Oval

    I have a generic tweed F5 case that my 1919 fits in just fine. The extra space for the scroll is a nice place to put a strap, tuner, etc.

    I contacted them, but their starting price of $300 is out of my price range.
  16. Re: Modern pickguard for a teens Gibson A?

    The problem is that there is only a very small area on the side of the fingerboard to attach the pickguard to. This is a whole different thing than a mandolin with an elevated fingerboard.I just...
  17. Modern pickguard for a teens Gibson A?

    I really like some of the smaller, floating pickguards on modern mandolins, and I'd like to have one on my 1919 A2.
    Is anybody making something like that?
    Thanks!

    After playing dozens of Gibson oval hole mandolins over many years, my opinion is that the snakeheads, as a group, don't necessarily sound any better than the paddleheads. I have a '19 A2 that sounds...

  25. Re: What mandolin recordings are definitive to evolving its role?

    I think that Jethro Burns' solo on Back Up And Push was a game-changer for a lot of "swing-curious" bluegrass mandolinists.
