  1. Re: Refurbishing my old Stewart MacDonald (kit) mandolin

    Tops can be graduated from the top side or the bottom. It's just harder to check the thickness with the mandolin intact. Keep in mind you may need to refit the bridge if you change the graduations...

    Re: Machine tuning - bushings don't fit

    Those will be the dimensions of the tuners. If they match up with your post holes center to center it should work. Mark the middle of each hole and verify you are close to that dimension on each hole...

    Re: Machine tuning - bushings don't fit

    Those are the tuners I linked to above and could be the closest to what you have. Look at this diagram. That is the dimension you need to be checking.

    Andrew Mowry was last active today at 11:14 AM and last posted on January 7th. I don't remember ever seeing a post from Don McRostie or Monteleone. The doesn't mean they never did, it just means I...

    Re: Martin Mandolin Identity

    Great job on building the case Steve. I've always wondered why there wasn't more of build your own case movement. Some people build some heavy boxes. I'm not talking about that, I'm talking about...

    Re: please help

    Yes, it did the trick but I can't seem to get to it anymore because there are too many cases stacked in front of it. Yes, I am a sick man.

    Re: Machine tuning - bushings don't fit

    Re: Gibson A-40

    I was under the impression the backs were laminated arched with a brace. That's what Gruhn's book says as well.

    Re: Harmony H-417 Mandolin

    It should be a Harmony Monterey A style. They made the Monterey from the mid 30's to the late 70's. I don't know if they kept the same model number all those years. They should be all wood and...

    Re: Machine tuning - bushings don't fit

    Tuners are measure by the spacing from center of the post to the center of the post. You may or may not be able to find this size post spacing. The first thing you need to do is to measure it.

    Re: The Gibson Acoustic Electric on Ebay

    That's not even a good fake Gibson. It's an import that someone has added a label to. And of course it's a pawn shop that got taken to the cleaners again. We had a wave of these several years ago,...
