    Re: What next to get?

    Honestly, it's pretty rare for even cheapo tuners to be responsible for instruments "not staying in tune." Usually there's some binding in the nut slots that means string tension's not equally...

    Gibson A40

    This Gibson A40 (1963) led a hard life in the oil patches from the jungle to the arctic. When rescued, it had cracks in the top and most way around the rim, missing pearl dots, a finger board hump at...
  8. Re: Care with old mandolins and modern cases...

    For a relatively inexpensive solution, (at least compared to Calton or Hoffee) try one of these. It fits my 1918 L&H like it was made for it. Should fit most shorter-necked mandolins.
  9. Re: Care with old mandolins and modern cases...

    The Vectra still has issues. It will not work with my Strad-O-Lin. Or probably any other instrument with a deep body. And other reviews have said it doesn't work on an instrument with an elevated...

    Re: Care with old mandolins and modern cases...

    On some cases, where the pocket is held in place by screws or staples, it can easily be moved if you are handy with tools.
    It won't work on the case in Bazz's picture, though.

    A cautionary tale.

    Re: A tip thatís helping my clarity and speed

    I think you are spot on. There is a way that if you think in phrases rather than notes, your hand plays in phrases instead of notes and the whole thing is a little (sometimes a lot) faster. To my...

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    I believe that's the legendary "nine pound hammer"(?)

    One can finagle with the cover's rim, using needle-nose pliers, to "loosen it up" a bit -- but beware the too-loose cover (not to be confused...

    Seriously, though, I end up using a small flathead screwdriver to start moving the tailpiece cover on my SOL (and Gibson A Jr for that matter). Both are very tight fitting and difficult to remove....
