    Re: 75 Gibson F-5

    What would a revoicing cost? There are reasons, sentiment being one of them, to spend money on an instrument beyond what it’s value would be. I’d say if it was going to linger in a closet because you...

    Re: 75 Gibson F-5

    I have a '75 F5 which I purchased over 30 years ago. It had a dull sound with no projection, regardless of what strings I used, or how hard
    I played. But it was structurally sound, and attractive...

    Re: Magnetic Pickup Advice

    Kent Armstrong makes a very thin jazz pickup that I have put on mandolins and it sounds quite acoustic. If you use bronze strings it will only pickup the cores of the wound strings, but it still...

    Re: Magnetic Pickup Advice

    Is this an acoustic instrument currently?

    If it were me, I would go with single coil or humbuckers on a solid-body electric mandolin - as I would use that type of pickup for resistance to feedback...

    Re: A-String Buzz

    Every instrument has its own sweet spot as far as relief is concerned. Some will play great with no relief while others demand it. With the short scale length of a mandolin, a little relief is almost...

    Re: EM-150 questions

    Ok. I looked into treble side F-hole and looks like the number there is 703 C 6 (6 is in pencil, others are stamped).

    My pickup has been "compensated." Yours looks like it was cut down uniformly....

    Re: Any new pedals for multi-instrumentalists?

    I think it would be happenstance to find anything from a perfectly reasonable marketing stance. Say you have a hundred guitar players wanting a multi effects pedal. Pretty big market, but 30 of those...

    I have one of these—my only Regal instrument—which needs some help. I got it pretty cheap though. I have no real expectations that it will blow me away with tone, but I love the look and it has the...

  14. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    I bought one a few years ago to mess around on. Honestly, it's a blast. The first thing that hits you is that there is actually sustain. Good luck on four fingered chords :)

    I started out simply...
  15. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    tmsweeney is right about sharing a lot of sonic space with the guitar.

    I've been playing along to Eric Skye's "Kathryn by the Delaware" on the mandola. I can match the pitch of his guitar part on...

    I 've always been drawn to the dark side of the mando universe, and actually focused on octave for along time, the first mandola I bought (off of Larry Sledge -who played mandocello on Norman Blake's...

    Sometimes, the best you can do with those is to match the details to catalog pages, advertisements, or dealer spec sheets. Things like headstock inlay designs, fretboard extensions or lack thereof,...

    It is an octave 12-string guitar—tuned one octave above a standard 12-string.
