    Re: Like this site but for guitar....

    I got a few guitars!

    I used to go to the AGF and also the unofficial martin guitar forum. These are a bit dated in their interface; however.

    Want to discuss, Gibson, Taylor or Martin. That's...

    Re: Oval hole differences

    I'll defer to others on wood and how it affects tone. I just have my one oval hole mandolin, any more and it's birch sides and back. I have had maple before, but notice little in those regards.

  5. Re: A newbie player looking for an affordable entry level mandoli

    Get a 300 series Eastman from a café sponsor where it'll be set up properly. I'd go with an f-hole.

    don't get your hopes up on a 200 dollar mandolin, unless you love 100 dollar guitars?

    Re: Confusing Gibson Flatiron

    pictures would be nice. . .

    Is it x-braced or parallel?

    I'd agree on the '98 vintage. So, that's after Gibson bought Flatiron. It's likely too early for the Asian pedigree? It's also too...

    Re: Effect of storage on a mandolin

    I've owned my 1920 A3 for over 35 years. I've owned my 1930 L-1 (guitar) for over 30 years. They've been tuned to pitch all those years. I don't have problems.

    YMMV.

  9. Re: How to lower action - old Gibson A1. Top or bottom of bridge?

    all adjustments on my one-piece bridge have been from the bottom. I drive a 1920 Gibson A3 paddlehead. No adjustable truss rod.

  10. Re: 1923 Gibson Mandolin Production Estimate - By Model

    Just so interesting! Makes me wonder just how many white face A3s (all years)? Also, I echo Felix. Just how many A2Zs were made?

    What a legacy, Joe! You are Mr. Gibson!

    Re: 1923 A4 Gibson Value

    snake or paddle? For a paddle-head, it seems high. For a snake, it may be a good deal?

    Not that I'm looking. I'm happy with my A3!

    Re: "Powerful/Loud!"

    For me? I like knowing the horsepower is there if I need it.

    My struggle; however, is managing the dynamic range. That's the hard part, for me!

    Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    I think the hardest instrument is the larynx followed by the pucker. I mean, think of the 10,000 hrs we invested between the ages of birth and 4 to learn how to operate the larynx. Not everybody...

    Re: '17 A-1 Bridge

    I've kept the original bridge on my A3 for the last 35 years. I did have it adjusted. I've had it lowered. I've had it raised (glue on a shim).

    which one has the 5-latch case? Which one is without adjustable truss rod? Pheff, is spot on. Just a couple of items I'd consider if interested in buying either.

    Re: Muth Mandolins and transaction payments

    Larry's built two mandolins for me. We'd talk on the phone and swap emails. I'd try going through his web page. What you describe sounds like it's a scam.
