  1. Re: Position available in full-time touring bluegrass band.

    I thought that was the bass player's job ...
  2. Re: looking for string recommendation for a rigel

    Rigels were, at least for a time, strung up with John Pearse strings before leaving Vermont.

    Re: Jazz 5 Roberts/Tiny Moore Mandolin

    Lynda, we'd love to see the photo of your dad.

    Apart from Tiny Moore, photos of Bigsby mandolins with their original owners are rare. A handful of Paul Buskirk, one of Al Giddings, a couple of...
  4. Re: Amazing Musical Instrument Company Electric Mando

    No way are there 263 of these mandolins. That has to be an overall instrument number.

    I came across a secondhand Amazing violin a number of years ago at Danny's Music in Everett, Wash., but I...
  5. Re: Bigsby/ Jay Roberts: How many made, any out there?

    Yes, Verne, I think you nailed it!
  6. Re: Bigsby/ Jay Roberts: How many made, any out there?

    Just gotta throw these photos up here, because after all this is a Roberts too, and these funky sparkly 8-strings haven't been properly documented.

    There was one other like this in the...

    Re: Jazz 5 Roberts/Tiny Moore Mandolin

    How interesting. So it would appear that Tiny had at least 2 of these "Tiny" Roberts mandolins; the other one is at Skip's Music in Sacramento.

    Note that the knobs don't match, the name "TINY"...

    Re: Jazz 5 Roberts/Tiny Moore Mandolin

    Hi Lynda, so your dad was Glenn Tarver?

    Jay Roberts made a few different styles of electric mandolin. The "Tiny Moore" is the best known and it's the Bigsby copy. The Jazz 5 looks a little...
  9. Re: First Time Cafe Seller - Returns Cost Allocation

    Yikes. Yes indeed they did.

    I just sent a buyer a $25 refund on a $525 purchase, for reasons I needn't specify here, and PayPal debited my account for the entire $25 -- in the past, that would...
  10. Re: Classical nerd roll call: Lyon & Healy archtops

    Well, I paid an embarrassingly small amount in a Craigslist transaction. The mandola has an ugly and poorly repaired headstock crack, but it's been stable for as long as I've owned it.
  11. Re: Classical nerd roll call: Lyon & Healy archtops

    Style A mandola, Style A and C mandolins
  12. Re: Shocking revelation! Lyon & Healy Style C on eBay

    Anyone tried looking inside your L&H with a mirror for a side-stamped serial number yet?

    Re: Kerman Mandolin status as of 2019

    Tim, you don't have to answer this, but it would be helpful to know what the cost of a Kerman is.

    Re: Kerman Mandolin status as of 2019

    So, a friend who's probably the best classical mandolinist I know personally ... who's on call for a particular major US symphony orchestra whenever they need a mandolin player ... some years ago she...

    Looks cool, but if you're the one selling it, it needs to go in the classifieds.

    Re: Rare Gibson-made Capital Electric mandolin

    Hm. Well, no truss rod cover there ...
  21. Re: Amazing Musical Instrument Company Electric Mando

    Well, I was looking at it too ... I probably would've tried to get a luthier to add a magnetic pickup to it. I think I recall seeing one other one that had been modified in that fashion.
  22. Re: Amazing Musical Instrument Company Electric Mando

    Well, there isn't much else to know. The instrument has just a piezo pickup, not a magnetic one. I think the body is the same one Amazing used for its violins, although of course the neck is...
  23. Re: What information is there about JWW Mandolins?

    That sounds right.
  24. Re: Shocking revelation! Lyon & Healy Style C on eBay

    Heck, I've sold a tailpiece cover alone for that amount. That is certainly one way it could go, presuming the buyer isn't paying someone else to do the work.
  25. Re: Shocking revelation! Lyon & Healy Style C on eBay

    Wow, it went for $818.08!

    I hope it was bought by someone with repair skills who will fix it because it's the right thing to do ... but at that price there's almost no financial upside.
