    Re: Gig bag for pancake mandolin?

    Have you ever noticed how much pancake mandolins look like tennis racquets? :)

    Take a trip to your local big box sporting goods store. It's a real plus if your name is Wilson.

    Re: Gig bag for pancake mandolin?

    I have an Access gig bag. It’s a firm gig bag and you can buy pads for it to exactly fit your mandolin. It’s still a gig bag, but very protective.

    Re: Drop In Tuners For 1933 Gibson A

    I never thought about black until I just read your reply.

    It has an ebony bridge and fretboard.

    By golly, I'm gonna do it!

    Thanks, everyone. This is still the best forum on the planet.

    In the link for "Tuning Machine Maintenance" mine are the ones he says "never work well".

    Looks just like them.
  5. Re: A Strad-O-Lin almost identical to mine

    If it's as good as Sue's SOL, and I believe it is very similar, it should be one of the good ones, even if it is a laminated back. I had a solid top / laminated back & sides Orphrum branded SOL that...
  6. Re: A Strad-O-Lin almost identical to mine

    Got it! Paid one dollar and fifty one cents more than Sue did for her Clarence White Model.

    Tale of the Burgin and the Phoenix

    Last week I finally decided that I was too lazy (and getting perhaps a bit older lol) to continue down the rabbit hole of learning the octave mandolin. My beloved Burgin Shanghai needed to go to a...

    I guess they call it a Mandolin Acquisition Syndrome because sometimes you might acquire more than one at a time. 1921 A Jr & 1924 A Jr. Do you think my wife would notice that I got two? They look...

    3) have been found by the MC sleuths.
