    Re: Expensive mandolins

    Long story short - I have always wanted to get the mandolin tone that Bill Bolick had with the Blue Sky Boys. Several months ago I was digging through some old cassette tapes and found one that...
  2. The new (old) mandolins of long time reader.

    The vintage subforum says to post about instruments from before 1945, so I figured this would fit better here. My name is Niki and I have been a long time mando cafe reader, easily since 2009. And...

  5. Re: Anyone near Camarillo want to make a few bucks?

    Oh, I've gone back and forth with this individual already. He does not wish to lift a finger to ship these cases.

    This guitar: Nano-Guitar

  7. Re: How did you feel about your new build Mando?

    To be totally honest, some people shouldn't take this plunge. Simply ordering a custom built instrument might not make you happy and I'm sure every custom builder would rather have a customer coming...

    Re: Are Eastmans a keeper?

    I have an Eastman and a Collings. They are both keepers for different reasons. Almost all of what I hear is the player not the mandolin. With eyes closed, I can tell this is Sam Bush playing, I...

    I had a chance to play one of these today at the Fretboard Journal HQ. I offered to write a review, so I'll have to be tight-lipped here until the review is posted.

  18. Re: Bouzouki built for under $1k? Any thoughts?

    I think that the best deal in bouzoukis is Phil Crump (http://www.pwcrumpco.com/index.html). His zouks...

  20. Re: How much does a Northfield actually cost to make?

    Northfield builds its own mandolins. Eastman has its own people and factories. What people fail to realize is that Eastman has been building violin family instruments for decades. Their top of the...

    Do a little more research on the economic costs of outsourcing. Look at what is happening in places like China where wildcat strikes are a common occurrence in factories. So, manufacturing costs in...
  23. Re: How much does a Northfield actually cost to make?

    Northfield is not an "outsourcing" organization. Their business model is nothing like that for The Loar, Kentucky, Morgan Monroe and others you apparently wish to lump them with. This has all been...
