  1. Re: Musty Smell in the case and mandolin.

    This shouldn't be hard looking at your location. Find a hockey rink that has an ozone machine. They use them to clean hockey pads and such. Have them treat the case but not the instrument. That will...

    Re: Danelectro Guitarlin

    A little bit about the lipstick pickups. New Jersey was home to many manufacturers one of them being a little company named Revlon. Actually the company started in New York City but as many...

    Re: Lucille Ball plays tenor guitar

    You don't have to be unsure. Lucy's Harmony tenor doesn't have a bridge and all of the banjos appear to have a block of felt stuck to the top of the banjo instead of a bridge. Lucy Arnez appears to...
  6. Re: Seeking new/used tunning machines for the 1940's (?) Dobro ma

    This should be taking place in the Classifieds or as PM's as we don't want commerce on the forum.

    Re: Danelectro Guitarlin

    The company was founded and flourished about 10 miles from where I live. When I first moved here 40 years ago I met people that had worked there in prior years before it closed. The stuff imported in...
  9. Re: My gut's telling me to get this Regal Tenor Guitar

    The OP should probably buy it as he's a few miles away from it. Yes, we can geolocate an IP address.

    Re: Parrot Party

    I was under the impression that the parrot had been removed. I'm so happy to see it still there! I know the decals on the front went away. That's one of the things I've always wanted to do was have...

    Re: DW Stevens reverse mandolin.

    It's also on his website here. Not the first time that was done but it looks like it was well engineered. I like his better than the Unicorn and Mustang.

    It looks like he left us too soon. RIP.
  14. Re: Early mandolin recordings / Correcting Wikipedia

    I took out the first two.

    By the way, all three have an invalid attachment.
  15. Re: Who is a member/board member of a local BG/OT/Folk Society?

    I guess my mention of insurance in the fourth post didn't delve deep enough. Yes, don't expose your board members and trustees to litigation. Nobody should ever lose their house because somebody...

  18. Re: Who is a member/board member of a local BG/OT/Folk Society?

    I'm a trustee of the Bluegrass and Oldtime Music Association of NJ (BOTMA, one of dozens the US). We have had our ups and down over the years, recently reeling from the pandemic and members just...
  19. Re: Will CA Help on These Stradolin Cracks?

    In that case I would never use CA.

    See if James Condino in Asheville has time and if not consider sending it over to Bob (rcc56) in Nashville for the repair.

    If you decide to do it yourself...
  20. Re: Know what this is? It keeps staring at me!

    In the early 30's in trade publications Kay was advertising their laminated back and sides as a feature. Nicer Washburn's with laminated sides were a hot item in the mid 20's (see the link below)....

    Re: Identify 100 year old mandolin

    Sovereign was indeed an Oscar Schmidt brand name at the time this was built and it appears to be made of Koa not Mahogany. Don't do anything to restore this, you have an instrument that appears to be...

    They weren't exclusively marketed as Supertone's. It was a Harmony product.

    Re: Tell me why not: Carbon fiber bracing.

    The late Rick Turner used carbon fiber sandwiched bracing on at least one of the guitars they manufactured and also used CF rods inside the instruments. I'm sure there's more out there on the web...
