    Re: Tuners for an F-9

    They were used for well over 10 years. They could possibly still be using them, I don't know. They replaced the Schaller's spec for spec so they didn't need to retool. I don't have a whole lot of...

    Re: Tuners for an F-9

    Those are Gibson Grover tuners, made by Grover specifically for Gibson. I used a set for several years before swapping them out for Waverly tuners. I'm actually surprised, they seemed like really...

    Re: Is this too junky (ebay find lol)

    Several years ago when I was buying and selling instruments I got one of those in a lot of instruments I purchased. It was more than awful.

    Re: Gibson A 1916 mandolin case search

    There are old threads here about three piece and more Gibson backs. I'll see if I can find them.
  5. Re: My only Mandolin's nut got damaged, what is my best option?

    Just have a luthier cut a new nut. That's your best option. Hopefully someone can recommend a luthier in Chicagoland.

    Re: ID tuners?

    I have two sets that don't cause me any problems. I'm really surprised. Where are you located? You might want to have someone take a look at them.

    Re: ID tuners?

    Waverly. What is the problem? Stewmac will replace them if they are defective but look at the nut slots first.

    Re: Lloyd Loar's Pick

    I knew what it was called but if I recall nobody could really identify what that was.

    The stuff available in Germany may not be the same fiber but it would be interesting to know exactly what it...

    Re: Tuners for an F-9

    Alan, post a picture so we can ID the tuners. I'd be looking at the nut slots and tuners can be serviced.

  11. Re: 1923 Vinaccia Mandolin eBay Auction: Scam ?

    Pretty obvious. Hundreds maybe thousands of expensive items really cheap. No real history selling instruments. I'd stay away from that one.

    Re: Is it defective ?

    It appears that the top of your bridge may be reversed. Take a look at Gail Hester's picture in this thread. That will also mess up your intonation. I don't see anything wrong inside that mandolin...

    Re: Screws for tuner buttons

    As much as that sounds plausible I can tell you that you probably couldn't do it. If you could I wouldn't have been buying screws from a half dozen screw suppliers in the US and a few overseas.

    Yeah, I remember e-mailing Gotoh to get their screw size. Then I couldn't buy that screw size anywhere. I finally figured out there was an SAE size that was really close to the metric size and it...

    Re: Screws for tuner buttons

    One size will not fit all unfortunately. Some of us have spent some time figuring out sizes. You need to know the brand name of the tuners or at least provide some pictures so we can ID them.

    Re: S.S. Stewart

    Built right around 1900, probably before 1915. Bill Monroe bought his mandolin in a Barber Shop as well. :)

    Re: Gifted mandolin

    It's not a vintage instrument, it was most likely made in Vietnam and sold on eBay. It's similar to this one. Sold by Antoniotsai or Bruceweiart.
  21. Re: Where in Chicagoland did this one come from?

    The other thing that kinda nags at me was I had only seen that tailpiece cover on Regals until I realized they were used on the real Shutt mandolins as well. If it could only talk.
  22. Re: Where in Chicagoland did this one come from?

    That's close, there is a chance that Wurlitzer commissioned the same instrument from different builders as well.
  23. Re: Where in Chicagoland did this one come from?

    In the Vintage ad social group there seem to be multiple occurrences of a similar body and pickguard style on a catalog page with a known Regal product. Curious.
  24. Re: Where in Chicagoland did this one come from?

    Then you see this and wonder.
  25. Re: Where in Chicagoland did this one come from?

    The pickguard shape looks like a Harmony. The snowflake was a common inlay on the Shutt style Harmony as well. Oscar Schmidt also built Supertone guitars (at least) so I'm assuming they could have...
