    Re: keeping the mando off your stomach

    Yes they are!!! And not to cause any further controversy, but that is absolutely the best way to keep a mandolin away from your stomach! And I love Docís capo confession! Great stuff!

    Re: Ibanez Buyer beware

    Iím not familiar with the Ibanez warranty specifically, but I would agree that most donít honor neglect as a valid claim. However, I donít think anyone can say without any doubt that this is solely a...

    Re: Inexpensive starter mandolin advice needed

    I have no experience with either of the two instruments mentioned by the OP, but if I had to choose I would go with the Ozark. I would much rather have solid woods than laminate, especially a...

    Just curious, but if it was bought from an authorized dealer seven months ago wasn’t it still under warranty?

    Re: New Washburn 'Timeless' F-5

    Well, since this thread has been revived Iíll throw in my two cents. I really like the look of the ďTimeless Celtic AĒ, but the guitar style pin bridge turned me off. If they had done a mandolin...

    No official solo gigs, but Iíve done some ďbuskingĒ around town. (Quotations because I donít do it to make money) I stick to fiddle tunes and play them unadorned, just try to get a good groove and...

  18. Re: Beautiful little shop find identification?

    Itís hard to make an assessment based on a single photo, but from what I see I wouldnít think twice about dropping a Franklin on this mandolin. Top looks solid. Buttterfly inlay is nice. Missing a...

    Re: $200 to spend on a new or used Mandolin

    Iím going to buck the trend and suggest a vintage bowlback. They work well with fiddle tunes in a solo situation and it would look really cool in your office when youíre not playing. Good...

    Re: Why is this Gibson being called an A-5?

    Ouch!!!! Poor Gumby!!!!!

    I kinda like the quirky look of this oddball. Itís priced a little too high for me to buy on a whim though. I did notice someone has it in their cart on Reverb.

    Re: The Obvious 12/26 Question

    Hey Hank,
    Is that the Billy Brown custom build? (All of that flamed maple is kind of a giveaway)
    I had my eye on that one, but I guess I was on the naughty list!
    Nice acquisition!

    I believe JWW mandolins were made by James Wilson before he started Red Valley Mandolins. If you go the Red Valley website you can contact James directly. Heí still building, but heís in Idaho now.
