    Re: Finally Completed!

    Nice job! I love the maple binding, thatís a really nice touch! Just curious as to what material you used for the nut and saddle. And I canít really make out your headstock design, Iíd like to see a...

    Re: Who?

    Thatís hilarious! I was at a late night gathering about ten years ago and someone said my guitar playing was like Norman Blake on acid! I wasnít sure what to think, but I took it as a compliment! It...

    Re: Playing Solo..

    No official solo gigs, but Iíve done some ďbuskingĒ around town. (Quotations because I donít do it to make money) I stick to fiddle tunes and play them unadorned, just try to get a good groove and...

    Thereís already a lot of great advice here. Before I make any assumptions, what makes you ďthinkĒ you should have bought an oval hole?

    Oh Jeez! I knew I shouldíve waited until I saw a Jim Garber post! My post was based on heart, but Jimís is based on reason and experience. I would trust Jim.

  9. Re: Beautiful little shop find identification?

    Itís hard to make an assessment based on a single photo, but from what I see I wouldnít think twice about dropping a Franklin on this mandolin. Top looks solid. Buttterfly inlay is nice. Missing a...

    Re: $200 to spend on a new or used Mandolin

    I just want to say that my suggestion was not meant to undermine Allenís. I think the Rover is a fine choice within your budget. My suggestion is a bit out of the box and maybe a bit eccentric and...

    Re: $200 to spend on a new or used Mandolin

    Iím going to buck the trend and suggest a vintage bowlback. They work well with fiddle tunes in a solo situation and it would look really cool in your office when youíre not playing. Good...

    Re: Mandolin Mount Rushmore.

    There are too many greats past and present. My vote would just be Bill Monroe a la Crazy Horse.

    Re: Why is this Gibson being called an A-5?

    Ouch!!!! Poor Gumby!!!!!

    I kinda like the quirky look of this oddball. Itís priced a little too high for me to buy on a whim though. I did notice someone has it in their cart on Reverb.

    Re: The Obvious 12/26 Question

    Hey Hank,
    Is that the Billy Brown custom build? (All of that flamed maple is kind of a giveaway)
    I had my eye on that one, but I guess I was on the naughty list!
    Nice acquisition!

    I will twine, I will mingle my raven black hair
    With roses of red and lillies so fair..........

    Make any more sense?
  16. Re: What information is there about JWW Mandolins?

    I believe JWW mandolins were made by James Wilson before he started Red Valley Mandolins. If you go the Red Valley website you can contact James directly. Heí still building, but heís in Idaho now.
  17. Re: I put new strings on and positioned the bridge myself

    I know 3-in-1 sounds a little crazy, but itís actually been recommended by Martin on their guitars. Iíve been using it for over 20 years on all of my rosewood and ebony fretboards. I guess food grade...
  18. Re: I put new strings on and positioned the bridge myself

    I use 3-in-one oil at least once a year when I have all the strings off. A few drops on a cloth and work it into the fretboard. I like to do the bridge too.

    Some like to use lemon oil. There are...

    Re: Metal-Clad Fretboard

    Travis Bean built electric guitars with an aluminum neck that ran through the body. The bodies and fretboards were wood, but the pickups were mounted into the aluminum creating a unique tone. Jerry...
  20. Re: I put new strings on and positioned the bridge myself

    I wouldn’t worry about the scuffs. To me that’s honest playing wear. Good Mojo!
    String changes are a matter of preference, though three years seems like a long time. But that’s just me.
    My concern...

    I should have stated in the OP that Iím not asking the pickguard question because I want to purchase this mandolin. Itís out of curiosity and to make myself more knowledgeable. I added the Reverb...

    It does look similar, but I think the one in the Carter photos is possibly a Washburn.

    Thanks Nick, I see now that the OPís tailpiece is a slider, a bit of an oversight on my part.

    I agree that it looks rough and appears to be on top of the finish. I did notice in the Martin book that they did do some non inlaid pickguards on guitars for Montgomery Wards (Like the one in post...
