    Re: collecting and playing mandolins ?

    I have guitars also, a 12-string, a couple of 6-string steel string, and a couple of nylon-string, I own them for their different sounds. I also own several mandolins, they all have different sounds...

    Re: Used Gibsons

    I too am looking for a used Gibson (but casually, if I happen on one for the right price, fine, if not, okay too,) but to answer your question, Yes - I bought my Collings used for a good price,...

    Re: In case or on stand?

    Cases unless being played - I have dogs and cats who are NOT graceful! (Of course, neither am I! LOL!!)

    Re: Ibanez Buyer beware

    My Larrivee guitar came with a whole little pamphlet in the case explaining proper humidity levels and how to keep the humidity there. Was pretty important to Larrivee.

    Re: TMS to Nashville

    Now it will be in (sort of) driving distance for those of us in Ohio - a (long) one-day "road trip!"
  7. Re: On eBay, 2007 Eastman MD615 with "some" wear

    And what's with all of the scratches on the headstock? And I shipped a guitar to Boston for $60.00 First Class. So $144 is WAY high IMHO.
  8. Re: We have a 3-way race: Collings vs Pava vs Gilchrist

    I'm glad I don't have to make the decision - I've never played a Gil, so no opinion there, but I own a Collings and a Pava, and I love both, (although as mentioned above, both sound different -...

    Had a group on this week called "Bedouin," I believe that I had never heard before - really good group! I was impressed.
  11. Re: Looking for Information on Older Bowlback Mandolin

    Pictures of the headstock (front and back,) and any labels inside the oval hole will help with identification. Thanks!
  12. Re: What Does Vinaccia and Phillips have in Common ?

    Un"restored", I might (as a bowlback lover) have been interested in it, but now it would be crazy to have to undo the "repairs" and get it back to its (near) original state.

    Re: Should I be insulted?

    One cat sits in my case while I play, one leaves the room, and the other two don't care one way or the other. The dogs also could not care less. I don't know whether to be flattered or not, or if my...

    Re: Mystery Solved

    I wonder if it is just neck sweat on the strap coming off on your shirt, or if it is actually stain getting on your shirt. My straps have never stained my clothes, which is why I am wondering (and I...

    I think of it slightly differently, but the result is the same: I need all the help I can get from my instrument! LOL!! I did this, and I KNOW the problem isn't my mandolins, it's me! Play a variety...

    Re: Quite ill with a trach and a feeding tube

    Dan - best wishes for a full and speedy recovery. I agree with the sentiment that mandolins have healing powers - recovery goes quicker with something to recover FOR - so plan to be playing as soon...

    Seller probably bought it thinking he could resell it and make a killing on it. Didn't seem to work for him. Needs to learn to play it, it seems.

    Hi Norm! Never too old to learn a new instrument - I took up mandolin at age 60, after starting guitar in my youth and putting it away for 40 years (work, family, and life got in the way.) Discovered...

    Re: Sold my Collings and got a Pava

    Interesting - I have a Collings MT, a Weber, and a Pava A, and they all play easily for me. I find the neck shapes similar enough to not make a difference. They are all wonderful mandolins, and I...

    Re: 1909 A4 Gibson Factory Revamped

    Same here. I'd love to have an early Gibson A-style mando. I don't NEED one, and don't have the money, but that doesn't change that I'd like to HAVE one!

    I have wanted a Buckeye mandolin for awhile, just because I am a born and raised Ohioan, and I think it would be appropriate. You may have pushed me to make the jump, and pull the trigger on the next...

    Re: 3 Point F-4 Torch and Wire

    Living vicariously is cheaper than buying the instrument, but I enjoy the excitement that the person is able to get the instrument they are hoping for too….
