    Re: Battle of Evermore

    I seem to recall that Jimmy Page wrote “The Battle of Evermore” on a Martin A that John Paul Jones had picked up, and such mandolins are both made of solid wood and occasionally available around your...

    Re: Bridge location on an A5 build

    Adrian, do you have any opinions on why this seemingly suboptimal bridge placement seems to work so well acoustically? Mrs. Griffith has a lot of fans, and not simply because sheís the only Loar A5,...

  12. Re: Will I Notice A Difference? Gibson 1917 vs 1922-34

    Did the Juniors ever have adjustable truss rods? I was under the impression that they didn’t, even in the Loar era.

  15. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    How many oval hole mandolins would you estimate that they sold during those 4-5 years?
  16. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    Some believe so. I just think that the snakehead is an easy visual cue for all of the other ďadvancementsĒ (e.g. adjustable bridge, adjustable truss rod, more narrow neck profile, etc.) associated...

  18. Re: Why did Gibson return to Paddleheads after Snakeheads?

    If you are willing to accept some inspired guesswork in lieu of definitive truth, Iíd suspect two reasons:
