    Re: yamaha mandolins

    Just for giggles I just went and looked at my first decent guitar. It was a Yamaha Red Label FG-110. I still own it. I can't explain how or why I still own it. I bought it in 1968. I guess it's...

    Re: yamaha mandolins

    Well, get pictures and you'll have the only known example of a Yamaha mandolin. We haven't seen one.

    Re: yamaha mandolins

    Do you know if it's a bowlback mandolin? Any chance you could get pictures? The last mention of a Yamaha mandolin we had turned out to be a Suzuki and the member just had the wrong name on their mind.

    Re: NOT an essential service?!

    If it's not categorized as essential it's closed in New Jersey. They don't want people together unless they have to be. I know it's hard for people to understand that other states are not like their...

    Up until recently most music stores in New Jersey were still shipping and doing curbside pickup but with the closure of all but essential businesses that stopped. What's happening elsewhere I do not...

    You need to read the posts, I seriously doubt that any serious comments we're aimed at the OP. Carry on.

    I wonder if he ever played this one? It does say he owned it.

    Sad story but we are headed in the wrong direction here. There are plenty of places to have this discussion on the Internet.
  12. Re: Fixing up a cheap case - is 3M spray adhesive a bad idea?

    The gas would be the least of your worries. Leave it open in the air a few days in your garage and it will air itself out. The bigger problem is if there is any contact between anything vinyl and a...

    Now if he can only hang onto it for another 70 or 80 years there's a chance, a slim chance it might be valuable.

    Re: old Flatiron, old guy, some thoughts

    There's no problem with making it playable and making it the way you want it to be. It's not of great historical significance and is probably a really decent mandolin. It's yours, you can do with it...

    I love the story Glen Campbell told about figuring out the guitar leads to a song not knowing Tiny was playing it on a mandolin.

    A leather bootlace is probably the cheapest strap around. A good number of the pickers you'll run into at jams are just using that. I just make my own straps using leather straps but there are...

    You may have to take the strings off but if you square it off and remove the fret you should be able to create a ledge to finish it off with binding. You might have a long enough piece that you could...
