    Re: Who was the first American mandolin manufacturer?

    I finished reading El Norte by the way, a good read all in all. No mention of mandolins in it though sadly.

    Re: Scrolltastic 30s Oddball Mandolin

    I think it is a tamburitza inspired mandolin, and mandolins themselves are found in Balkan music. Here is my bisernica tamburitza with the similar soundhole style:178085

    Re: Gold tone

    I'm happy with my Gold Tone OM, haven't played one of their mandolins though.
  6. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Gibson owns Kramer and Kramer makes Stratocaster copies under the Kramer Focus model (except for slightly different headstock). They're guilty of the same thing they're accusing other companies of.

    Re: Am I asking too much?

    You could try selling it to Guitar Center if you have one nearby, they tend to take mostly everything even if you don't get the most money you could for it. Otherwise I'd probably just hang on to it...

    Re: Piccolo mandolins

    I've often wondered what the smallest fully functional, non-novelty stringed instrument is (based on scale length I suppose); seems like a piccolo mandolin might be a strong candidate. There are some...

    Re: Kentucky KM180S

    The S in 180S should stand for solid top, and that's the most important thing as long as the price is reasonable.

    Good for you for revitalizing a nice old instrument as well.

  16. Re: So what would a 27" scale mandocello sound like?

    27" is a good baritone guitar scale length, so I'd imagine not unsuitable for mandocello.

    Re: 19" octave mandolin - tune as CGDA

    You can use pliers to crush the ball ends and convert them into loop ends as long as you do it carefully, opens up a lot of options since you can then use electric guitar strings.

    I have a 6 string and a 5 string bass, I typically keep the lowest string tuned to A on them though. I think it makes incorporating it into songs a lot easier when you can just mimic whatever you...

    Re: Kentucky KM-150 vs KM-156

    The only difference is the finish color, I have the 156 (brown) which I think looks better per my personal taste, but others may prefer the 150 (sunburst). Try to find regular photos of each model in...
