    Re: Lyon & Healy Model A rebuild or for parts

    Hey, my style A mandola has a poorly repaired headstock break and it sounds just fine.
  3. Re: Fender FM60E truss rod: single action or double action?

    Well, my customer was happy with the setup initially but is complaining that it seems to have changed on him.

    I've had a couple dozen of these, bought them all used and never had one that wasn't...

    Re: Lyon & Healy Model A rebuild or for parts

    Oh, I've sold several of those tailpieces over the years . I wouldn't write this instrument off as a basket case before inspecting it in person, though.

    Re: Lyon & Healy Model A rebuild or for parts

    Did you look at it in person? Can't tell from the photo whether it has a label or not. Also can't discern anything useful about the headstock break from the photo. Has it been repaired?

  8. Re: Fender FM60E truss rod: single action or double action?

    I'll pass the advice along to the client. He is in South Africa, which may complicate matters a bit, but given that the FM60E is built more like a guitar, it shouldn't give a guitar tech too much...
  9. Re: Fender FM60E truss rod: single action or double action?

    Well, one can raise or lower the individual saddles with a hex wrench, but this isn't your standard mandolin bridge.

  10. Fender FM60E truss rod: single action or double action?

    Fender produced the Korean-made FM60E 5-string electric from 1999 to 2001. In the last year of production a truss rod was added.

    Does anyone know if the truss rod is single action or double...

    Catherine Russell used to play mandolin now and then, but seems to be presenting herself more as a pure vocalist these days.

  13. Re: An (incomplete) list of recorded black mandolinists

    There's an African-American string band in New York called the Ebony Hillbillies. Saw them at Wintergrass one year. I don't remember if they had a mandolin player at the time (they don't appear to...

  15. Re: Help with type of Mandolin for string orchestra

    In case it wasn't clear, I was referring to the orchestra Marie is playing with, not the Forum (although I suppose the Forum also functions best when we don't disparage each other's instruments).

  16. Re: Help with type of Mandolin for string orchestra

    This kind of group should be an encouraging and welcoming environment for people and their instruments. It's not a place for people to disparage each other's axes. If you're bothered by other people...

  19. Re: Help with type of Mandolin for string orchestra

    You absolutely do not need a bowlback to play classical music in the U.S.

    Eventually you might want an oval-hole mandolin, but there is no need to buy one right away. Save your pennies until you...
