    A former band mate of mine attempted to go to Woodstock, but got stuck in halted traffic for several hours before he and his friends decided to turn around and find the nearest bar.

    He missed...

    Re: Out of my league

    Unless I am mistaken, ANY musician who can afford a Loar can claim it as a business expense, and use it as a tax write-off . . . so, it can serve the triple purposes of being a player, investment and...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    It 'could be a collector's piece' . . . and I 'could be the King of Spain' - but neither is likely.

    I suspect that I, and even my kids and/or grandchildren, will be long dead by the time that...

    I think you might have a better chance of finding a cheap Gibson Loar than convincing your wife . . .

    Re: If You Don't Perform In Public....

    First and foremost - I do not own a high-end mandolin, and most likely never will . . . unless someday I come across a nice Gilchrist at Goodwill for $100 - but I'm not holding my breath on that one....

  11. Re: Check out this mandolin...... Thoughts, comments, concerns

    Well - that's . . . interesting . . . .

    Actually, I kind of like it . . . I just don't $6,700 like it . . .
  12. Re: What is the most mandolins you've owned at one time?

    I think I topped out at about 4 or 5 mandolins. On the other hand, my highest total of various stringed instruments at one time was 36.

    Yes, I have the same 'condition' as William . . . and...

    Re: Vintage Gibson oval hole

    Believe it or not, I got turned on to Gibson ovals by watching old videos of Dash Crofts of Seals & Crofts. It is something that I would like to lay my hands on - someday when I am worthy . . . .

    Re: General Mandolin Post

    For my quick 2-cents . . .

    Opinions and advice are great - but It's YOUR mandolin - so in the end YOU decide what plays, feels and sounds right to YOU.

    Play, learn and enjoy!

    I have never had the pleasure of visiting Elderly - but judging from Steve's post, I am quite certain that if I ever did have the chance to go, I would definitely leave the credit card at home!

    I have owned two 1929 Martin Style 20 mandolins over the years - and the first one came with the original case.

    Kind of reminds me of when I first starting collecting baseball cards in 1969 - I...
