    Re: For John Prine

    Pretty sweet Kevin Bacon plays Mando! I still love the original Friday the 13th movie he was in-well and some others! I met John Prine in 2005 at the Station Inn when I went to see Mac Wiseman and...

    Re: Case search

    I love my Paganoni Loar style cases, I use them for all my main mandolins as they have that great vintage looking vibe, I've used the same one for one of my F-5's for almost 20 years and I've had a...
  3. Re: Happy 75th Birthday Today, David Grisman!

    David is one heck of a musician! I can't even hold a pick to his bright light! He's been an inspiration to myself and countless others throughout the ages! I first fell for him with the record my Dad...

    Re: GIROUARD F4 Delivered Today !!!

    Yes that is one killer looking mandolin! I wish Gibson back in the day would've made say the F-2's and F-4's with the longer 5 scale neck with the elevated board! They would've been such better...
  7. Re: Do You Play ALL of Your Mandolins Regularly?

    No I don't, I play just a few all the time "my Loar, old Ferns, and my one Loar Buster F-7 conversion!" and I'm trying to sell many that would make players/collectors very happy! I figure even though...
  8. Re: 1923 Lloyd Loar Previously Owned by Joe Val For Sale

    That would be a mighty fine Loar F-5 for someone! at 140K it may sit as I don't know anyone who is paying around that for a Loar but may be wrong? I've seen the same ones at dealers for a long time...

    Re: Eric Weissberg

    Larry Wexer has had Eric's Loar F-5 for a long time now! Oh yes I love all the Loar F-5's! All are indeed special in their own ways.

    Re: Fern Loar F5 Attic Find

    Right on, I remember this Fern and it was a 29 by the looks and #'s, I think its in the archives but no PIX yet? I'm hopefully remembering correctly but the leaves were drilled through the Fern outer...
  11. Re: Grover? Gotoh? Schaller? Golden Age Mandolin Tuners?

    Golden Age makes some fine vintage replacements for your old Gibson's! They just need to start making the late 20's-early 40's bump end, worm over gear mandolin tuners! They already have the bump end...

    I have to say but yeah man that Baby's got back! Looks fantastic-the whole package! Some people have a bad allergic reaction to using Black Walnut, I built a table out of it once and had no issue...
  13. Re: Earliest G&S Co. Case? Earliest M&W hard case?

    Here is my 1916ish Rare M&W H-4 Mandola case! Anyone seen one besides his one? I showed my old Fern so you can see how it swims a bit in the case!

    Re: Fern Loar F5 Attic Find

    Every year or so a newly discovered Loar or post Loar Fern or even a late 30's-early 40's Gibson F-5 comes back to the light and for us geeks its very exciting! Prices seem down right now as compared...

    Re: Fern Loar F5 Attic Find

    I noticed that myself before Henry "Henrik" mentioned it! But didn't want to ruffle feathers. That one is more than likely a late 1929-early 30's F-5, you can see the post through the fern leaves as...

    Yes with any modifications very well said "Disassemble at your own risk!" I'd go for it if the owner wanted to do it! My old saying "nothing to it but to do it!"

    Re: Chris Thile's Loars

    Because Loars personal mandolin is more than likely a killer F-5! Extra care was probably taken-Loar invented the pickup and it was installed in his Loar plus Lloyd was a Virzi advocate, Loars is...
  20. Re: Anyone tried a Virzi Tone Producer on an oval-holed mandocell

    Just take your time and you can pop the back off and try your Virzi project! Just don't rush it-that's the problem with many do it yourselfers-you get in a hurry and that's when bad mistakes happen,...

    Looks like an A-3 with a bunch of finish work? Also it looks like tortoise top binding? Is that correct? Gibson sporadically in the late teens and more so in the 20's used tortoise binding on mainly...
