  1. Re: 1923 Gibson "Lloyd Loar" F-5 Mandolin-Storied Sounds Demo

    And relatively 'click' free picking on an intact Florida. It can be done... just not by me :(

    Re: Marty Stuart's Mando

    Started out with JR Cash carving his initials. Once it had been de-virginized a lot of other artists followed suite. At least that's the way I heard the story.

    Re: Gigs Cancelled - Health and Safety

    I believe the run on TP is mostly driven by the fear of being confined to the house for extended time, either due to illness or quarantine.
    Regardless of the symptoms, that's one commodity that's...
  5. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Yes. It's called L.F. (Lester Flatt) sleep.
  6. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    That opinion is shared by many. One of the reasons you can't buy a Loar for the price of a Derrington M.M.



    That's an interesting statement. Have those scientists been able to control for...

    Re: Hoffee vs new Calton vs Pegasus vs ?

    I have a shaped F-style Pegasus. I like it. Where it really counts (for me anyway) in a travel/flight case, it shines: Structurally strong, good fit (snug, but with good clearance) and very effective...

    Browser Inconsistency

    To whom it may concern:

    Just noticed that M.C. Forum opens up beautifully in Google browser.

    Not so much in Brave. Looks like this:

    Re: Pinky independence

    "I have been playing this mandolin for a year now".
    That's what I tell the people who hear me play. It's less humiliating than telling them how many years I've really been at it.

    Stick with it;...

    Re: Chris Thile's Loars

    I think Chris Thile was enthusiastically explaining how L.L. went out of his way to make sure every detail was just right for his own personal F5 mandolin.

    The phrase is pretty subjective though....

    Good plan!

    I tried to be truthful about it but didn't want to rain on your parade if you'd already bought it.

    Re: Kentucky unknown model

    All I can say is that I've not seen one like that. The tailpiece cover looks to be genuine a Kentucky article, but I don't recognize any other similarities to the Kentucky mandolins I've seen. As far...
  19. Re: Early flatiron mandolin prices rise help?

    Hmmm... the OP is "thinking of selling" his Carlson signed 1984 Flatiron. These 1984 Flatirons must be rare birds, the seller in the Classifieds refers to his as a "hen's tooth''.
    And both the OP...
