  1. Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    I don't know. I think that the instrument is deceptively difficult though it sounds simple and the throat singing is not at all easy to master. Try it sometime.

    Re: Bowlbacks of Note

    That is very cool, Bill. I remember that one and probably also avoided it because of the ribs. It looks like someone say on it.

    Let me think on the case possibilities.

    I probably posted some of these on various threads over the years but figured I should put them in the photo section of the SOL Social Group.

    Re: Lombardic mandolin

    We in the classical department here call them mandolinos. Really they are sort of a hybrid mandolin, sometimes regional. More info here on wikipedia.

  9. Re: A question on a Century of Progress Gibson LC Guitar.

    I got my '35 neck reset and some other work on it by an excellent luthier. It now plays like a dream. Yes the mother-of-toilet-seat fretboard is a royal PITA.

    1927 Tipo B student model. Price is reasonable and it looks like it is in decent shape though is almost looks a bit too shiny especially on the bowl. It could have been refinished or oversprayed....

    Re: Guitar to mandocello conversion idea

    He did it on at least two. One was a Vega and I think also on an Epiphone archtop.

    I think the LH300 would probably be an excellent conversion candidate. Solid top, too. Probably would sound very...

    As with everything else, it is what you get used to. One friend of mine excels on the Anglo Concertina. Gets great rhythms for playing for dances.

    I am glad that the stars aligned when I got my A4C but I could have easily missed that one, too, like Mike had to. Life does, at...

    +1. You only mention bluegrass as another genre. I assume, though, that you are aware of plenty of other styles of music you might explore. I would even suggest going to one of the West Coast camps...

    Modern Embergher 5bis copy by Dietrich at Bernunzio. I am unfamiliar with this German Shop.

    Looks like this is the page on their website showing mandolins.

    Here are pics from Bernunzio's site.
