    Re: Troublesome Creek

    I love flattop mandolins. I started on a used Mid-Missouri and have subsequently purchased a Flatiron 1N, a Gypsy Vagabond, and two Redline Travelers. I even later custom ordered a Poe Scout with all...

    Re: Octave Mandolin Strings

    I have happily played TI’s on a flattop (Mittel) and an archtop / resonator (Stark), and willingly spent the ~$40 for the privilege. I don’t see me spending $100 just so I can toss the C strings when...

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    Sue, now that you have reached your third mandolin, it is probably the appropriate time to warn you that one's fifth mandolin typically costs as much as the previous four put together.

    Re: NMD Pomeroy Oval

    Expect to hear from Mike Black’s attorney. :))

    Seriously, that Pomeroy sounds sparkling and lively as well as full and meaty. I hope you find some other tunes in the bottom of it.

    Re: $1000 Budget

    It was more fun when your budget was $1500. ;)

    If I was interested in playing bluegrass, and had $1K to spend on an F5, I’d be looking for a Kentucky KM1000 like this one:

    With 37 bids already and over 2 days left to go, I’d expect a lot more movement before the auction closes.

    Re: 3 old tenors

    You have just described one of the primary reasons why I am drawn to modern reproductions. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that they also don’t typically cost as much as their vintage and pre-war...

    I would expect this mandolin to be valued around ~$4K if it were listed in the classifieds.

    I don’t know why one would subtract the tuners from the valuation or choose half as the depreciation. I’d think it’s worth 2/3 to 7/10 of its current replacement value, like most desirable but...

    Re: Flatiron

    My guess is that it’s a 1997 Flatiron A5, made after Gibson had purchased Flatiron in the late 80’s.
