    Re: Mojo on beloved Daley mandolin

    I like the looks of pickguards but prefer to play without them. I find that using an armrest changes my string attack enough that I don't get the pinky drag wear. Easy to try and easy to remove if...

  6. Re: What sort of instrument is this and what is it worth?

    I bought one at auction once out of curiosity. I did a neck reset on it, not a typical dovetail neck joint reset, lol! This one had newspaper cartoons glued in for lining reinforcement.

    Re: Advice needed for this seam separation

    To me it looks like the binding has pulled away, as in shrinkage. Is that what I'm seeing? I would certainly speak to the builder for their input on the matter.

    Re: Tuner replacements

    I've been considering the 309's to replace the really slopping gears on my F5L. I wish the Grovers had slot screws (like mine) in the gear as well as slot screws for the plates. I suspect getting...

    Re: for people who don't have deep pockets.

    Look more closely at the A-9 on Reverb, it does not have an integrated fingerboard. I used to own a first generation A-9 like this one. It had plenty of bark and tone that one associates with Gibson....
