    Re: Austin area Mandolin Shops?

    As a resident of Lockhart (and a central Austin refugee) I may not be a wholly unbiased source, but I highly recommend a trip to Fiddler's Green. There are other reasons to make the trip out to...

    Re: For those who love changing strings

    I owned a modern harp mandolin made by British luthier Stephen Sedgwick that was just a blast to play (even if - or maybe because - I was never quite sure what to do with it!). I've lost contact with...

    Wow. Suddely I'm having flashbacks to GeoCities circa 1996. :-)

    Re: Walnut L&H Model A?

    I've seen one other example of a brown-topped L&H beyond those that Jim Garber mentions. Lowell Levenger had a Style A brown-topped mandola some years back (probably close to 20 or so years ago). I...

    Re: Peter Ostroushko Passes

    Listening to Marjorie's Waltz #3 right now and raising a demitasse of espresso to Mr. Ostroushko. May have to make borscht later. His music has always meant so much to me (and will continue to do so)...

    Re: '77 D.Wm Halsey F5

    One of Bill's mandolins popped up at Elderly in late 2018. To say it was gorgeous would be an understatement. Some lucky soul snapped it up before I could pull the (not inconsiderable) purchase price...

    Re: Lyon & Healy Mandola Model A

    Courtesy of the wayback machine, here's a photo of the one from vintageinstruments.com ca. 2004 ... back in the day. :-)

    This is one that, in retrospect, I wish I would have snapped up.

    Re: Lyon & Healy Mandola Model A

    Lowell Levinger had one of the brown L&H mandolas on his site for quite awhile back in the early 2000s if I recall correctly. I lusted after it heavily, but the neck had been modified a tad to make...
  13. Re: An archtop/jazz mandolin similar to the Apitius Club Jazz

    Another option would be Eric Foulke of Boots Mandolins, https://www.bootsmandolins.com/.

    I owned a Boots Imperial model for years and absolutely loved it. Wish I still had it!

    Some of the exact same instruments and photos are listed on both of these accounts ("japanproduct" and "far.east.man".) Similar seller feedback patterns as well.

    Re: Problem seller on eBay

    Mike - You may well be right. Regardless, there's certainly enough red flags that I would never consider buying anything from this seller.

    I suspect it is some sort of scam rather than a...

    Re: Problem seller on eBay

    I do think that they - or someone - has the mandolin for sale (albeit it at a super inflated price), as I sold it through the 'cafe to an individual in Japan. Why it's listed multiple times with...

    Re: Problem seller on eBay

    Interestingly, this seller has a mandolin that I used to own that I'd love to have back. Unfortunately it has been marked up about $3000 - $3500 over what I'd consider to be a fair value for it....

    Re: Who wants to be the next CEO of Gibson?

    While I certainly agree with Shakespeare's sentiment, I'm not aware of any aspect of being a CEO which would, in and of itself, preclude a person from appreciating and playing music.
