Thread: Stiver mandolin registry

    Default Stiver mandolin registry

    I'm wanting to gauge if there is any interest in setting up a registry for Stiver mandolins. I am happy to set something up if there is some interest. I haven't quite thought of the structure or what kind of information it would include but I'm sure we can come up with something. What do you think?

    I am interested. I have a lovely A model in natural finish with a custom ordered wide nut. I'll post the serial number for reference soon.

    Be great to have this - does it exist? I have #353 - an F finished in June, 2015. Bought it April, 2018 from Elderly - it was on consignment. Lou Stiver told me via email that it was originally ordered by Elderly. Flat fretboard, 1 1/16 pearl nut. It was a little tight when I took delivery. Swapped out the J74s with 75s, raised the action a bit, and have been playing it hard every day - it's opened up beautifully. Plenty of bark and belly, and a lovely, balanced tone up and down the neck. Love this mandolin.
