  1. Re: 1925 Gibson Mandolin Production Estimate - By Model

  2. Re: 1923 Gibson Mandolin Production Estimate - By Model

    This serial number is so close to '24 that it would be hard to argue whether it's a 23 or 24. The Loar mandolins signed on December 11, 1923 are about 300 numbers earlier
  3. Re: Canadian folk music moment (no mandolin content)

    Re: Mandolin Orange on today Show

    I think of Mandolin Orange's songs as who they are as songwriters and appreciate the depth of their lyrics. True, their musicianship is exceptional, as is the production quality whether live or in...
  6. Re: Asturias - Solo Mandolin (Performed by Tiziano Palladino)

    The Asturian tunes are my favorite of the northern Spanish regions (Gallicia, Basque, Leon...). Seems to have also gotten popular among a section of Irish players like Nuala Kennedy, Flook, etc.

    Trolling perhaps?

    It takes a certain amount of smugness to trust your abilities to judge someone you've never met and gotten to know in person.

    Great point, thanks for bringing it up Br1ck!!! I just went through this yesterday, and I suspect most of the mandolin community is also experiencing it.

    Re: High frets on mandolin.

    I respectfully disagree. I think the reason, in many cases, that getting good tone out of 14+ frets is hard is that we don't work on it as much. I mean, assuming the mandolin can deliver, which many...

    Re: Marty Stuart's ex-Loar?

    The strings had been loosened. I did pick a few notes though just to say I'd played a Loar. Truthfully, I was so excited that I was buying that Birdseye Northfield Artist that Marty Stuart himself...

    Re: Marty Stuart's ex-Loar?

    If I remember, Marty had this way back in the late 80's and sold it later to raise money to buy his "collection" of Country "stuff" to put into his new 30 million dollar museum in MS. Marty has...

    Re: Fret Slot Depth

    A slot .03" deeper than the tang is probably within the acceptable range. Too shallow a slot, and the fret won't seat correctly. It is said by some folks that if the slots are very much deeper than...

    Re: Who has thin bluechips?

    I switch between a TD35 and TD40 on acoustic guitar depending on my mood and feel at the time. I also use the 40 sometimes on oval hole mandolins. I don't notice any compromise in stiffness...
