ID:	188868I have an old Kentucky mandolin. I’d like to pay a luthier to make a head block and neck for it. I’ve given up on making the repair myself. I can give you the mandolin body and a maple neck blank. <Removed by Moderator. Please limit commerce to the Classifieds.

    I'm sorry to say this but the shipping cost to a luthier may be close to future value of the mandolin after repairs. The cost of the repair (especially after failed attempt to replace the head block) will likely exceed price of similar mandolin in good or perhaps new condition.
    Just sell it as DIY project and buy something functional.
