  2. Re: If you could have any mandolin in the world….

    I would get back the Flatirion A5 Artist that I won in the Frets Magazine giveaway in 1985. I foolishly traded it to Greg Boyd in 2003, and have regretted it ever since. 177117
  3. Re: VERY CLEAN GIBSON MANDOLIN A50 1942-1949 Flame back Boring si

    It's really an A-1, not an A-50. A blonde mandolin like this sold on Ebay last week that had highly flamed sides, and a plain back. Maybe they got switched in production.

    Re: Help please dating A-style Gibson

    It was not uncommon for Gibson to repaint pegheads and put a modern logo on and instrument that came in for repair. I used to have a Southern Jumbo guitar that had the original 1947 script logo...

    My "worst gig" story:
    We were booked one year to play for the last day of the season party at a popular local ski hill. It's a long drive up a steep, icy road, then the gear gets ferried up, little...

    Re: 4- vs 8-string electric mandos

    If you get an 8 string, you can always play it as a 4 string.

    Re: Mandolin missing 46 years

    You never know. Peter Frampton eventually got his Les Paul back after the plane it was in crashed in the jungle: https://www.npr.org/2012/01/07/144799712/framptons-dream-guitar-recovered-decades-later

    Thanks Bob. I play lap steel also, and have been working on some HC tunes, as well as some other swing standards.

    Re: puzzled by Gibson A at guitar show

    Gibson often added or updated a logo on the head stocks of mandolins that came in for repair/refinish. I used to have a '47 Southern Jumbo that had been back to the factory for repairs, and they...

    Re: Shadow bridge pickup?

    A friend is going to give me an old Fishman bridge that he hasn't used in a long time, so I guess that I'll be spending my money on a preamp. The Schatten mini is in my price range. Any other...

    Re: Shadow bridge pickup?

    This is why the bridge pickup seems like a good idea for this particular mandolin. My $50 Rover will sound just as good as a Collings.

    Re: Family heirloom early Gibson question

    It's a style A. An A-1 would have "The Gibson" inlaid in the peg head.
    Looks pretty nice from the pictures.

    Shadow bridge pickup?

    I just picked up a cheap Rover RM-50 mandolin with the idea of using it for louder situations, or other times when I don't want to bring my 100 year old Gibson. Since it's such a cheap...

    Re: Value of 1919 Gibson A-2

    I paid $1100 for my 1919 A2(all original with pickguard and case) from a local music store a little over two years ago.
  17. Re: 4-string emando, what’s the best out there?

    I have a 4 string mandola from Montana luthier Ryan Rukavina that I love. He winds his own pickups, and they sound great.176071

  19. Re: 1935 Gibson A1 Mandolin on eBay for you bargain hunters

    A-1. A-50's from that period usually have bound fret boards and pearl inlay in the peg head.

    50's A-50.

    Re: D'Addario Strings - Ask Us Anything

    No questions. I just wanted to say that I've been using your (non-coated) phosphor bronze strings for 35+ years, and I'm still very happy with them. Thanks for making such a good string!

    Re: Help identifying this Gibson Mandolin

    Definitely an A-1 from that period. Aside from the logo(No A-40s had the pre '47 script logo) it also has a maple back, which no A-40 had.

    Re: Mandocaster?

    I've had a couple of 60's Fender mandolins, and tome, they weren't that great sounding. I think that most of the price difference is collector "value".

    Re: Gibson A — FON 2542

    If the dark spots are where the pickguard used to be, they may be from the pickgard going bad.
