    Re: Latest build electric mandolin

    Well, he is in Jersey :)

    He should have got one of those Revlon lipstick tubes for the pickup cover. They were in New Jersey at the time as well. :cool:

    Rick Turner would probably appreciate...

    That I never thought of but it would make sense. Thanks.

    It was great. A whole lot of old mandolins flashed across the screen. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

    Re: 1915 Gibson A Pickguard issue

    They are tedious and on occasion will let go from the pickguard and stay in the neck. As Bob said, they are just small nails. Pretty easy to replace if you lose one. Take a look at Paul Hostetter's...

    Re: Shade Tree Mando Repair

    I actually had a piece of bicycle inner tube that I had cut and sealed the ends to raise up a crack in a Strad-O-Lin so I could glue a crack. I couldn't get it exact but it worked. I was really...

    I suspect that Ricky is playing the Dave Harvey copy of the Monroe mandolin that was built a few years ago.

    Ricky Skaggs on NPR

    Earlier this week I caught the end of what I assume was a bit of a preview of the Ken Burns documentary on country music that is set to air on September 15th. At the end they brought out everyone...

    Re: What's up with USPS?

    Everything I've ordered has showed up early lately but I'd either call the shipper or take a trip down to the Post Office and let them look for it.

    Re: Regal Wendell Hall Guitar?

    I haven't seen one of these either but the tuners take it way back I would think unless Regal was sweeping the floor for parts. If I bumped it that I'd buy it.

    Re: Rick Stone mandolins

    Really only one mention but it was by a Cafe regular. It appears he has passed on but there are a few articles about him out on the web. This one stood out.

    You might have hit it when his hosting company was doing some maintenance or it might simply have been a MOT (a Mystery Of Technology).

    Re: Soares'y Electric Tenor

    That's kind of why you would have it custom made. Most good luthiers can make a pickguard no matter what the shape or dimension. If you can order it off the shelf it really isn't custom made.

    If the holes have no taper you just got handed an easy way to seal the holes and redrill.

    I always have a tuner on my mandolin headstock when I'm on stage. I value being in tune a bit more than somebody being able to read the logo on my headstock. I do use internal tuners on my guitars...

    Re: Tonegards

    I just looked at my Gibson F5G. No dents and that thing probably hasn't been off 5 times since 2005. The only time it comes off is if I'm dropping it off for work someplace. Your mileage may vary....
