    Re: 1996 Gibson F9 worth saving?

    I hope you got this cheap.
    If you want it fixed right, put a new neck on it.

    You might try contacting Dave Harvey at Gibson to see if they'd be willing to do it.
    If they won't, perhaps someone...

    Re: Natural / Blonde Gibson F5s?

    Forget the flowerpot.
    Find a good Goldrush and be done with it.
    You won't be lookin' at the peghead much anyway, while you're playing it.

  4. Re: Elixir Official Notice Mandolin strings discontinued

    I used -- and liked -- the Elixir coated strings.

    Now that they're no longer available, what OTHER makers are selling coated mandolin strings? D'Addario is one, I believe -- are there others?

    Re: 1975 Gibson F5 advice

    One more opinion -- you DO NOT want a Gibson from 1975.
    Many better choices out there.
  6. Re: Difference in MF and MF5 Collings Mandolins

    The varnish MF5 the OP links to at Gryphon is a little different from Collings' standard issue, in that it's "dark bound" instead of bound with white ivoroid.

    Still a beautiful instrument in its...

    Re: Derrington signed A5l MasterModel?

    There was a time when THEY ALL had "Gibson Master Model" printed on the label.

    Re: 1987 Gibson F5L

    That looks to be in spectacular condition for its age.

    The price is about $700-1000 "on the high side" to me, but the condition may have something to do with it.

    These will play and sound a...

    I change strings ONE PAIR at a time.

    It was a Carlson-signed instrument, but had some nasty finish problems on the scroll (as seen in the auction pics).

    All "Ferns" have a fern inlay on the headstock.

    But not all Gibsons with fern inlays are "Ferns".

    Here's one that isn't:

    That may not have been a high-end model in its time, but it has come through the years far better than most.

    I'd get it "tuned up" by a good mandolin luthier and keep it !
