    Re: Tell me about Wernick Method Jam Camp

    Thanks for the feedback, Don and everyone else. I will likely sign up if there are no schedule conflicts. It does seem like it would be a good fit and pretty fun.

    That was pretty fast, so I guess it settles the value question.

    Re: Tell me about Wernick Method Jam Camp

    All good input, especially via our Fearless Leader above.

    I'm also interested in comments from anyone who's actually been to one of these.

    Tell me about Wernick Method Jam Camp

    I am considering signing up for one of these weekend camps that is in late summer and only about an hour from my house (I would not commute).

    I started playing at the beginning of covid and have...
  7. Re: Is there any reson to buy a waldzither if you have a mandola?

    IMHO, if you can afford it, you should buy whatever calls out to you. I bought a flute a week ago, and I've never played a flute in my life. ;)
  8. Re: Stradolin Waverly/Tortoisehell Fancy Tailpiece

    Wow, there's quite a bit of variation in these. The OP cover isn't really like mine, either.

    Do you think the appearance, stripy vs. mottled, is related to the year it came from?
  9. Re: Stradolin Waverly/Tortoisehell Fancy Tailpiece

    I wonder if this is the same one discussed in this other thread: Junk Late 40s A50- Bonus S-O-L Tailpiece! Final price on that was $361 after 27 bids. Opening bid for this tailpiece/cover is $125.
  10. Re: Stradolin Waverly/Tortoisehell Fancy Tailpiece

    Wow, do you think it's really worth that much?!? That's a fair portion of what I paid for my whole mandolin only 2 years ago.

    I feel like this represents mando-inflation and that SOL should be...
  11. Re: Has anybody heard of an English maker called Frederick Winslo

    That is way cool and different. What a fantastic aquisition!
    I don't know about the rest of you, but I'd love to hear the sound of it.

    Re: Trying to get info on my mandolins

    Well, not exactly, Jerry.
    You don't have the snazzy stairstep fretboard extension :cool:

    You've got some pretty dang cool ones, though.

    Be aware that priority boarding is no guarantee of group A on Southwest. My sister flew Manchester NH to Tucson several weeks ago with priority boarding. She was in group B (still likely okay for...

    Re: Trying to get info on my mandolins

    Jerry, your SOL looks very much like mine, and I have also been told 1940 or 1941 based on the tuners. (There is no date inside mine.)
    Nick, what does your guitar look like? I am curious.

    Sound like a very fine birthday present to yourself, Ed. I almost feel more relaxed just hearing about it.

    Have fun!

    Re: Regal Octofone

    When I got mine and took it up to Jake W to have the neck fixed, I asked him about a pickguard. "Nah," he said, "they didn't have them."

    Check out the case with this one

    I want the case.

    Re: Question on "tiers" of instruments

    I have one of those Morris flat tops, Joe. It's a nice mandolin. It was my #3 (not bought as move up but as additional :cool:). It's the only brandy new mandolin I've acquired (thus far). It took...

    Re: Mix/NewMAD A4 at Guitar Center

    I saw one of these appear for about a nanosecond in the classifieds the other day, and I thought about the one you were evaluating. Thanks for the report, sounds like a fair amount of issues there.

    Function. Definitely function. And then appearance. But appearance doesn't necessarily mean pristine, like new (although it could).

    Some instruments are truly amazing works of art. (I've seen more...
