    Everyone's radar except for the unidentified buyer, lol! I hope if the buyer is a cafe member, they'll let us know about their conquest.

  6. Re: Shocking revelation! Lyon & Healy Style C on eBay

    I too helped raise the sale price of this auction with the idea of fixing it myself. I wondered how high the buyer would have gone as it exceeded my limit.

    Re: proper fret dress

    A crowning tool should leave the fret rounded. Slightly flattened is how they look after being leveled. Flattened could result in less clear noting.

    Re: James or Allen tailpieces-anyone use these?

    I think the most important think to note in regards to the James (I'm a huge fan) is the angle adjustment. I received a very nice higher end mandolin once that had the James and it was not adjusted...

    Re: Resonator mandolin repair

    Can you post a picture of the area that needs repaired. I'm trying to picture how the force of the tailpiece caused the body to collapse. Here's a picture of one I used to own taken apart.

    Re: crack in top, F model

    I agree with rcc5's suggestion/method.

    I really like the f-holes on this mandolin, neat to see something different. Is this a custom build?
