    I can't wait for your site to be back up. I to have 98% "no pics" and am really wanting to see more Loars. Good luck and thanks for doing this.

    73752 seems to have more redish hue to it. Almost like a teens Red Burst but I guess it could be the lighting?
    on a side note...

    Skinner has a 27 fern coming up on the block this month. And from the catalog it looks like it isn very nice condition. Hmmmm sell the house buy plane ticket. Pay for fern...probably not a good idea.

    my favorite thread...thanks and I cant wait for the Gibson project.

    On a building note and I may post this question over on the building forum.

    On most vintage F5s it seems like the rim of the f-holes are slightly champhered or rounded over just a bit. Not a real 90 degree cut..is this the way they were new or is this the result or wear?

    Wow, these mandolins are so beautiful I can hardly stand to look at them. Like someone else said, they are just about enough to make a grown man cry.

    Geesh, no lie... it's a love/hate kinda thing. Love looking at them, hate the fact i may never get to hold one in my hands. At least i can love 'em from afar thanks to this thread.

    I don't understand the "flat spot". could you hilight it or show pics of one with and one without? the 16 fret seem almost past the scroll. my modern fern has somewhat of a flat spot too. I wondered if it was intentional. very impressive!

    It's somewhat difficult to describe, and these are not the best examples..pic 1 is a Loar..the next two are ferns

    88144, Fern..Although a poor photo, you can see the flat spot irregular scroll a mile away (note how large the F-holes are on the '28/'29 example) This is one of Dave Appollon's Ferns, note the removed fret, his signature modification for hitting a certain high note

    when did the dot at the 3rd fret start on the ferns? I can see it on the Apolon mando but not so much on the others. Also the internal point of the scroll in the binding points down more on the loar. Is this a consistant trait?

    Yes on the way the mitre point on the Loar vrs the Ferns. The dot at third started around 1927, but this attribute is quite inconsistent until about 1929

    Hey Darryl,

    Very interesting stuff here. Interesting incosistencies in the Ferns and Loars. Is this attributed to template changes or ...? Hey, I asked if you had a picture of Bill Monroes "other" Loar. Do you still have that? I am very curious as I never saw him without his one and only. Thanks Darryl. MandoRyan
