  1. Re: Identification of two mandolins (no markings)

    The other question would be about the neck joint on the Kay. Is it still solid?
  2. Re: Compatibility of Grover A 309 Tuning Machines with Kentucky m

    There are a few Kentucky models where Saga used a tuner set that didn't have standard spacing. You need to check the distance of the posts center to center and compare that to whatever tuners you are...

    Re: An evening with the Martin harp mandolin

    Thanks Polly, we usually don't get that much information about the owner of a vintage instrument.

    For posterity we will add the photo and the page identifying the owner for the next person that...
  7. Re: Three Early Kentucky Mandolins Made In Japan

    The Saga Music website is here. Try contacting them. It doesn't hurt to at least try going to the source.
  8. Re: Identification of two mandolins (no markings)

    The top one with the F holes is indeed a Kay. That was their headstock shape. They used that headstock shape into the 50's. The bottom looks like a United.

    Post a picture of the back of the...

    Re: RIP Jerry Jeff Walker

    I saw him in the 70's at a concert in Portland, Oregon. He was already the soundtrack of my life at that time. Tried to name my first born Gerald Jeffrey but my wife was having none of it.

  18. Re: Help..problem with strap and looking for ideas.

    The Hans Brentrup method is my favorite and in my mind a simple and elegant answer.
  19. Re: on Reverb: When a scroll isn't a scroll, or is it?

    They had to work real hard to get the F holes in the right spot for the bridge. Being a lump scroll is bad enough, the rest is a little strange, right down to the tuners. Almost like copies of a...

    Re: Waverly tuner repair

    There is an e-Bay seller that sells Gotoh tuners at a really good price. You'll need to know if they are worm over or worm under and also if it's A or F style tuners.

    Re: Waverly tuner repair

    Honestly, unless you're a glutton for punishment I'd just replace them. You can probably move your buttons to the new ones.

    Those are either Gotoh tuners or the fake Saga Gotoh tuners that came on some Kentucky products a while back. When you pull off a button is the post square or round with two flats and are they A or...
