    Re: What kind of Mandolin

    The value isn't anything to worry about. It's rare but that doesn't make it valuable. In this case it's worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

    Gotoh apparently is making a geared uke peg...

    Re: Gibson, Tonk & Kalamazoo

    Listed in Gruhn's Guide to Vintage Guitars as being made for Tonk Brothers in Chicago circa 1935. It's a model 5284. It is basically the same as the Kalamazoo models.

    Re: What kind of Mandolin

    Janet Davis Music (before they went out of business) used to sell these small diameter geared banjo tuners. I believe they were made in Germany. They probably would have fit.

    Re: Harmony h35

    I could be wrong about that but the tuners are what dates it.

    Re: Harmony h35

    It's not much of a guess actually. The model was introduced in 67 but those tuners weren't used until sometime around 1970. They were out of business by 1975 but they ceased production before that....

    Re: What kind of Mandolin

    The tailpiece looks German to me as well. Those banjo pegs would be a bear to keep in tune.

    Nobody has ever had a definitive answer to these numbers. The part to the right of the H is generally accepted as the model number, the numbers to the left have been assumed to be some part of their...

    Re: What kind of Mandolin

    Yup. The only similarity I see is the fact that they both have strings.

    Re: Your favorite mandolin tuning tips?

    I'm not sure this matters much because at any given time there are only three mandolins that are in tune in the entire world and David Grisman owns two of them.

    Re: Who is Behind "The Loar" Company?

    "The Loar" brand name is owned by The Music Link. The Kentucky brand is owned by Saga Music. They are different companies and I know one of the owners of one of the two and I seriously doubt there is...

    If your concern is scratching the top lay the string envelope under the tailpiece for the string to ride on while changing the strings. Any change you make will most likely involve drilling some new...

    Re: Early Gibson - Lefty conversion

    If you're talking about the fretboard, early Gibson mandolins have flat fretboards, no radius. Steve at Cumberland should be able to fill you in on what you need.

    Re: Early Gibson - Lefty conversion

    Even if it had tone bars (F hole model) and you converted it to left-handed it would be OK. You'd never hear the difference. As has been stated you need a left handed nut, a left-handed bridge...

    There is some good news here. The tailpiece cover is there. If the tailpiece has all eight pins left then the tailpiece and the cover are worth more than the carcass of the mandolin. Depending on...

    The other side is don't automatically expect the back and sides to be solid. Kay was selling laminated sides and backs as a feature as far back as the thirties.

    Re: Better machines give better sustain?

    When you make a change to your instrument and pay good money for it then I would expect you to hear a difference. Unfortunately others might not hear the same difference.
