    Re: David Grisman - 'Home is Where the Heart is'

    It seems that he did use the '25 Fern on most of the recordings. This pic 189337 and description is from the "Tone Poems" CD booklet.

    Re: Speed neck recommendation

    A bare-wood speed-neck just looks a bit too naked for me. I use LMI water soluble powdered wood dye to match the color of the back. I apply thin coats of Tru-oil and wipe off the excess with a...

    Re: Song John Reischman plays in Fretboard Journal

    I'm pretty sure that's Vou Vivendo from the Reishman & Miller CD "Road Trip". Bumpy Road and Road Trip are both wonderful duet recordings with John Miller on guitar.

    Re: Some very fine Nancy Blake mandolin

    I think the applause might partly be the audience's appreciation for Nancy being such a trooper. Right before the applause, at about 3:00, her strap falls off her shoulder right onto her right...

    Re: Thinking I might have to do a speed neck

    Due to some arthritis in my hand, I decided to reshape the neck of my Northfield Big Mon. After removing the finish and reshaping, I stained it with some amber/brown aniline dye and finished it...

    Re: Tempted by a Gibson 1920 A-3

    I'm not particularly a fan of the white finish or paddle head, but when I visited Austin in July, that A-3 at Fiddlers Green was my favorite sounding instrument in their mandolin room, and compared...

    Re: Weird thing about the Jim Dunlop Primetone Picks

    I like the grippy PT's, with the grippy removed, better than the smoothies. Non-rehabilitated TS pick users should try them. Just sand off the grippy pebbles, reshape the bevels, and buff with...

    I'm afraid that I can't locate the bookmark for the site where pic #4 appeared. Seems like it might have been posted on an old Café thread, and I think it was just a peghead only shot only as I...
  15. Re: Bill Monroe's Lloyd Loar Mandolin #73987 Returned Post-Repair

    I think you are right about pic #4, Henry. I don't know what that mandolin really is. Here's a couple other pics from after the 1980 repair, and it does look different.

    Re: Who played mandolin on Tony Rice's On and On ?

    The liner notes say it is Jimmy Gaudreau on mandolin and tenor vocal.
    And now I see that while I was pulling out the CD, this information became old news!

  25. Re: Gibson Jam Master-anyone know this mandolin in the listing

    The Duff was X-braced and was a fine mandolin, but I was just never crazy about the tone. It seemed a bit dull to me. It may well be a matter of my own taste. The Fern was the best of the lot,...
