  1. Re: PBS documentary on the history of Bluegrass

    I think the Ken Burns documentary on country music airs on September 15th

    And somebody already posted that and I missed it. I'm looking forward to it.
  2. Re: what size flathead screw for a 1920 F2 pickguard clamp

    No apology needed, you found the product and that's what I needed. Thanks.
  3. Re: Broken bearing block on tuning machine - can I glue/solder it

    Look on the bottom of each of the Stewmac tuner pages. You'll see a drawing with the dimensions on them.
  4. Re: Broken bearing block on tuning machine - can I glue/solder it

    OK, if it was me I'd just replace the entire set. A standard set of Grover, Gotoh, Rubners, Waverly, just about any manufacturers A style worm over tuners will work. The spacing should be .906 in or...
  5. Re: Broken bearing block on tuning machine - can I glue/solder it

    Heat will probably destroy the button. I'd be real surprised if epoxy held it. Post a picture of the rest of the tuner. Somebody might have one.
  6. Re: what size flathead screw for a 1920 F2 pickguard clamp

    OK, that might be why it isn't on the website.
  7. Re: what size flathead screw for a 1920 F2 pickguard clamp

    OK, I'll give them a call, thanks.
  8. Re: Always surprised how people send stuff

    Years ago I bought an early 20's Martin Style A mandolin on eBay with the original case. It showed up with stamps attached to the original case as well the address sticker and the insurance sticker....

    Re: Prettiest Peghead Inlays Ever

    If anyone is interested in learning how to do inlay Dave Nichols at Custom Pearl Inlay in Malone, NY has classes on pearl cutting and inlay. I've never taken that class but a trip to Dave's shop is...

    Re: Prettiest Peghead Inlays Ever

    Just the mention of that gives me the shivers.
  11. Re: Can anybody help me identify this instrument?

    One place would be:

  12. Re: Can anybody help me identify this instrument?

    It is a bouzouki. It's not a hybrid. They are made with the bowl backed body style traditionally.

    Obviously this Italian builder used the same forms he...
  13. Re: Can anybody help me identify this instrument?

    That wouldn't be the scale length.

    Somebody had to build all those nameless bouzouki's they sold to the tourists in Greece. I'm sure they are probably made in China now.

    Re: Best suited cast tailpiece

    Look at post 5 above. I didn't have to plug two of the holes, but I had to plug the third because the new screw hole was too near the old hole. Not plugging is not a big deal but shoving a round...
  15. Re: Can anybody help me identify this instrument?

    Yes.
  16. Re: What Mandolin Did I Get From the Thriftstore?

    You only need to post this one time. Some of our resident bowl back experts will be along to give you some information. I don't think it's worth $240.00 even if it's set back up with the bridge and...
  17. Re: what size flathead screw for a 1920 F2 pickguard clamp

    Would that be this product (Silverplater)? If so that makes my day. That would resolve some real issues for me.

    Re: Harmony Mandolin

    Everybody that exported including Gibson had to add the country or origin stamped somewhere on the instrument. When I was a young man I worked for a company that imported bicycles into the US (from...

    Re: Harmony Mandolin

    I had a 71 or 72 and I don't recall seeing the Made in USA. Like everything else, inconsistencies were the only constant.

    Added: In looking at examples of the date codes I'm going to assume I just...

    Re: Harmony Mandolin

    Look for the stamp that starts with an F or an S. The number may be different. It could be enclosed in a rectangle or oval or it might just be the letter and the number.

    Re: Harmony Mandolin

    Waverly went away until the brand was resurrected when Stewmac bought the name.

    I had a similar Harmony a few years back. The bridge top was sagging when I got it.

    Re: Harmony Mandolin

    This is a Harmony H8010. I'm guessing this is what your mandolin looks like. The numbers before the H are some sort of manufacturing tracking number that nobody has a clue as to what they mean. The...
