    Re: point protector material

    I recall having a Gibson A-9 that had a Corian nut. It was rather sharp edged. I believe I filed the edges smooth before replacing it with bone. It is brittle.

  3. Re: What was your biggest challenge in making an F style mandolin

    I'll agree with the others who say binding being the toughest. I'll only use celluloid as abs seems harder to work. I plan to build an A model when I finally finish my current hybrid F-4. I don't...

    Re: Flatiron 1N neck joint?

    I loosened the strings and sure enough, there were 2 bolts attaching the neck. Unlike Taylor guitar necks, the neck is also glued on. I was curious about the type of joint as I wondered how a neck...

    Re: Collings scooped fretboard extension

    I've scooped both of my Gibson F5's, I also own a Collings MF, haven't seen the need to scoop it as the fingerboard doesn't extend so far as to get pick click.

    Re: Dec 18, 1980 signed Gibson F-5L

    Here's a photo of the label, still looks like Rich to me. It could be that Rick Brown also went by Rich, it's seems unlikely that Gibson had Rick Brown & Rich Brown working there at the same time.

    Re: Dec 18, 1980 signed Gibson F-5L

    I have an F-5L that was signed by Rich Brown on April 16, 81. I took a chance on it (Ebay) knowing it needed a little work. It came with a radius fingerboard that was installed by Randy Wood. I had...

    Re: R.G. Noyes' Octave mandolin

    It might not have been clear to the moderators. Probably a good idea to say something about the ebay (or other) listing that you are sharing. Wouldn't hurt to include "NFI" as well.
