    Re: Daley Mandolins are Back?

    Copperfish is correct. So far he's selling gin, as it will take some years before the whiskey is aged.

  3. Re: Charlie Derrington's 1970s Danny Ferrington F5 Mandolin

    It's at Sim Daley's shop right now, for him to do whatever needs doing. I expect it might get a new bridge, as Sim noticed that immediately, and I know it's in for a neck reset, fingerboard plane,...
  4. Re: Charlie Derrington's 1970s Danny Ferrington F5 Mandolin

    Bernie Daniel, my recollection is that Charlie made the case shell himself and finished out the inside, then took it to a boot-maker in Nashville who covered it in hand-tooled leather. It is a...
  5. Re: Charlie Derrington's 1970s Danny Ferrington F5 Mandolin

    DataNick, Charlie had that mandolin when I met him in about 1976. I don't know how he came to acquire it, but I imagine he talked Danny Ferrington into building a traditionally-styled F5. Mike Snider...

    If memory serves, Charlie made the case himself. He took it to a custom boot maker in Nashville to have it covered in hand-tooled leather.

  9. Charlie Derrington's 1970s Danny Ferrington F5 Mandolin

    I brought this mandolin home on Sunday!

    This is (reportedly) the only traditionally-styled F5 mandolin ever made by famous guitar & mandolin maker Danny Ferrington, which would make it a quite...

    Re: Danny Ferrington

    Charlie Derrington was a great friend, and my mando mentor when I started playing. After MANY years of searching, I finally found Charlie's old Ferrington F5, which was THE mandolin he played during...

    Re: Cedar as a top tone wood

    I don't build, and greatly admire those who can, but I have two Bryan England (custominlay.com) cedar-topped F5s. They are wonderful, plenty loud and with the darker, woody tone that I favor.

  16. Re: Why are Loar era Gibson A types such a good deal?

    Because they are not "in style", or because they may not "sound like so-and-so". If one MUST have a Louis Vuitton purse because that's what all the other girls are carrying, then a "name" F5 will not...
