    Re: Gibson Post Mortem

    Thanks for the response, rcc56. The first thing I did check was the Gibson website. Then a few stores that I know used to sell Gibson and they listed none. Did some searching and did find...

    Re: Gibson Post Mortem

    Worthy question, but an exceptionally poor title, that regardless of intent, inflicts potential harm into a company. That's not what the Mandolin Cafe is about. I'm not a particular fan of the...

    Re: Ad bumping up - standard practice now?

    No, everyone is not engaging in this. Some do, most don't. But you make it sound like it.

    Being online at any place where instruments are bought and sold takes a bit of patience. It's not there...

    Sticky: Re: Loar Picture of the Day

    Here is a few shots of my all original December 1st 1924 Lloyd Loar F-5 #80191 also with a Virzi, from when prohibition was in full swing and the 20's were Roaring! I'm very happy with the tone,...
  8. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I was part of some of the efforts to protect their product, trademarks, etc by Gibson while I was there. There is a lot more to this than just emotions or wanting to kick the big dog. I was used as...

    Some folks offering comments on this thread seem to think that trademarks and patents offer clear-cut protections (they do not) and that copies are somehow equivalent to "counterfeits" (they are...

    Re: 1977 Gibson F-5 Questions

    Thanks to everyone for the info. The -L is definitely added just judging the difference in pen thickness compared to the serial and signature. Looks like it was done with a ball point and the rest...

    Blue Chip meltdown

    Good evening!

    I swore that I would NEVER ever pay 35.00 for a pick - unless it were solid gold.
    Well... I sold a small bass amp for 50.00 and in a moment of weakness, you guessed it, I held my...

    Re: Double Stop Fiddle Shop Lost to Fire

    It would be really cool for someone from Fretboard Journal to wait a brief period for Mr. Berline to settle a bit, and then interview him about this experience and especially this mandolin, to write...

    Re: Double Stop Fiddle Shop Lost to Fire

    I feel so sorry for Byron, and I'm glad nobody got hurt. He is such a fine fellow and wonderful fiddle player. I'm proud to have toured, played and shared the room with him for 4 weeks in 1994 in...

    Well first, let me say I’m NOT trying to pick a fight. Truly. I know there are many who will disagree with this. But personally, I don’t think it’s quite right to go into a shop, take up store...

    This is the money line:

    I’m a band guy – I’m not a leader. I just enjoy playing with a good rhythm section, and these guys have one for sure.
