    Re: Updating an older Gibson

    Make sure you keep the original parts, so if you do sell it the new owner can put them back on.

    I would think in the $500 range, maybe a bit more or a bit less.

    Re: New Bridge?

    Get a luthier who knows how to work on mandolins and have them do a professional setup. That will get you the best bang for the buck.

    Re: tonguards ..do they really work?

    Jimmybikes,

    No offense taken. I am a 68 year old guy with a round belly and the Tone-Gard works for me. It is great when we can disagree and still be friends.

    Very nice playing. I am always amazed how good most of you are, while I still am an advanced noodiler.

    Re: Spruce vs. Cedar?

    Uh, Hank

    You might want to read your second sentence, It states the Claro Walnut both stayed flat and and bowed at the same time.

    Phil,

    Thanks for the replies.

    Re: Chris Thile's new pick

    What he uses means nothing to me, as I will never sound like him. I just want a pick that sounds good to me.

    Carry on.:grin:

    Re: Nickel bronze strings

    Do most of your mandolins have a Sitka or Red Spruce top? Has anyone tried them on an Engleman topped mandolin?

    Re: Pick madness, maybe pick maintenance?

    I have used a TAD 50 for five years and I can see no wear. The other pick I have been using is a Hense 1.4., it makes the tone a little brighter. Not a big fan of the Primetones, at the moment.

    Bernie,

    I know nothing about this type of repair, but your plan seems to be well thought out. I say go with it. I am sure there will be somebody that knows this kind of repair will chime in.

    Re: Once owned by

    I would guess which Pro owned it. A mandolin owned by Bill Monroe would bring in the money. Whereas one owned by me, not so much.
