  1. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Some companies that aren't worried are probably the overseas ones. Gilchrist, Duff, Northfield etc.

    Re: The First Loar F-5 I Ever Played

    The one and only Loar I've ever played is John Reischman's Loar on a couple occasions. The first time was in his living room, and I got to play it for an hour or so. He played my humble KM-1000 for...

    My New Pro Level F5 for $300

    Ok, so I clickbaited you. It's still an F5 and a darn nice one at that! I'll have to take some photos of my F5 mandolin with it I think! This was my dream camera back in college when I did film...

    There's usually some nice stock at Myhre's Music in Edmonton too. I'm in moderately rural Alberta and that's my main go to place. Where you living? NWT?

    Re: Ebonizing?

    I've done the steel wool and vinegar technique. It worked fairly well, but I used it on old barnwood cut ends. So I never really monitored the finish after I sold it. I made one batch with rusted...
  8. Re: Kentucky Km 1000 and it`s American contenders .

    My KM1000 has sounded better than most new models up to about $3000 that I've played. Better than a Dave Harvey Fern too (maybe setup problems), but not a Harvey Sam Bush or F5G. I'm looking to...

  11. New "Equipment" - (Thrift Store Violin)

    This qualifies as other equipment right?

    I picked up this full size violin at a Value Village yesterday for $30. I usually check out any fiddle that I find at antique shops or other such places,...

    The photos and video on his facebook are awesome! I'm not sure how to link them here, but he's still on his game!
  13. Re: I “lost faith” in the mandolin...

    I play my guitars a lot more than my mandolin. There's just more need for guitar in my social circles and commitments. I'm even a bass player in a touring band. But I still find the mandolin to be...

  16. Re: Anatomy of a fine Loar mandolin "Bench-copy/Tribute"

    How does the mandolin in question sound? I imagine quite good. I think there's a similar discussion about this in the Red Diamond thread in General Topics right now, but I've always wondered if you...
  17. Re: Anatomy of a fine Loar mandolin "Bench-copy/Tribute"

    Amen to that! The Halsey '23 model haunts me. He offered to build me one, but I didn't have the dough.

    Re: Brands With Larger Neck Profiles?

    I got a chance to play a newer Gibson F9, F5G and F5 Fern today. Loved the neck on the F5G! Nice and thick! I preferred the tone too to the Fern. Good to know. Just gotta play a Northfield now.

    Re: Brands With Larger Neck Profiles?

    Good to know! Northfield is high on my list of options. Also slightly more affordable than one of my other desire, a older Gibson F5L.

    Re: Brands With Larger Neck Profiles?

    I'm not concerned so much about the width of the fingerboard as much as the "girth" of the neck. My Kentucky is a bit thin for my liking.

    Brands With Larger Neck Profiles?

    I'm soon to be in the market for an upgrade from my Kentucky KM-1000. One of the things I'm wanting is a larger/fatter neck than the Kentucky. I've played a few Collings, a Stanley, a Red Diamond,...
