  2. Hello,

     

    I need some education re: this one as it offers payment through PayPal. I have been under the impression that this was not a form of payment utilized by the scamming crowd. I do notice that there is no PayPal assurance on this listing. Anyway, any instruction will be most helpful.

     

    Be Well,

  4. I know absolutely nothing about this. That said, I find the fretwork interesting and attractive as well as distinctive. Such a shame that it is in its present condition.

  5. LAURIE WILLIAMS F5 MANDOLIN

     

     

     

    It’s time to sell this exceptional and rather rare mandolin as I am not playing it as much as I used to.

     

    I am the original owner and the mandolin is in as-new condition with no flaws of any kind.

     

    This is a completely hand-built custom instrument by world-class New Zealand luthier Laurie Williams. Here is a link to Laurie Williams web site. If you are unfamiliar with his work, it’s worth a visit:

     

    http://www.guitars.co.nz/

     

     

    Here are the details:

     

    •Year Built: 2004

    •Back & Sides Wood: Ancient Flamed Kauri

    •Top Wood: Kauri

    •Fingerboard: Ebony, bound

    •Bridge: Floating Ebony, Adjustable

    •Headplate: Tarairie, Bound with beautiful Vine inlay

    •Pickguard: Figured Tarairie

    •Top Perfling: Black/White Lines

    •Bindings: Ivoroid

    •Tuners: Gold, Pearl Buttons

    •Fret Markers: Abalone

    •Tailpiece: Gold

    •Case: Hardshell

    •Body Length: 12 ¾”

    •Body Width: 9 ¾”

    •Max. Body depth: 2 ½”

    •Scale: 13 7/8”

    •Nut Width: 1 3/32”

    •String Spacing: 1 17/32”

     

    This tone of this mandolin is rich and full, bright and mellow. The overtones and harmonics are exceptional with excellent sustain. It is an extraordinary melody and two-and-three note passing chord mandolin. It performs jazz, classical, ethnic/world/gypsy and old-timey music with ease. It is superb for Irish/Celtic and Django-style music. It lacks a little in the "chops" to be an ideal bluegrass mandolin except for solo breaks.

     

    Selling price is USD $5500 including shipping and insurance.

     

    Current new price including Kauri wood and inlay upgrades is just under USD $8000.

     

    I may be interested in the right trade involving a Stefan Sobell mandolin or a Wheatstone Aeola Crane/Triumph Duet from the right period.

     

    Please e-mail for additional photos, with questions, or thoughtful trade possibilities.

     

    Be Well,

  6. Hello Stephen, et.al.,

     

    RE: I suspect that this miniature is probably pitched with the core in C, with the addition of the one accidental C#? (At least, that would be normal.)

     

    I offer the following information about my own mini for your (re)consideration of Elizabeth's assessment:

     

    12-button Wheatstone English G-to-B (LH: G,B,D,F,F#,A ... RH: A,C,C#,E,G,B)

    8-fold bellows

    5" wide closed bellows

    2-3/4" across the flats

    Perfect mechanically

    All reeds sounding on press and draw

    Unrestored original as-new (virtually unplayed) condition

    Original case including two keys

  8. David,

     

    RE: This is the ultimate subjective question.

     

    I couldn't agree more. That's why it's so potentially interesting.

     

    Just looking for opinions - unqualified and filled with experientail bias - to appreciate the range of tastes and diversity of concertinas among the concertina.net community.

     

    Simply hoping to open a fun dialogue - not achieve any definitive declaration(s).

     

    Be Well,

  9. Hello All,

     

    I am always fascinated and intrigued by conversations about value (ref: current Wheatstone Linota thread) and usually wonder to myself, "What would be considered to be the finest concertina all things considered: quality, builder, components, tone, rarity, etc., and what might the highest premium price it would fetch from an informed buyer be?"

     

    So, this time, I've decided to ask the masses here and see what variety of suggestions are offered.

     

    What is the ultimate concertina and what is it worth?

     

    Assuredly, the matter of Anglo, English, and Duet will immediately come to mind as a consideration; however, perhaps, we can suspend that distinction and replies can be based on whatever system is the respondents preference or bias.

     

    I am hoping that replies to this question will produce an interesting, informative, and entertaining compilation of opinions and perspectives.

     

    Thanks.

     

    Be Well,

  10. Hello Paul and Daniel,

     

    Paul, thanks for noting.

     

    Daniel, thanks for responding.

     

    This one is mine and it's quite legitimate. Seems one never can know for certain these days, though.

     

    Be Well,

  11. Hello,

     

    I am looking for a Crane/Triumph Duet in excellent or better condition.

     

    If anyone has one with which they are willing to part - or is aware of anyone who is - please contact me.

     

    It will be provided with a good home and lots of affection.

     

    I am in the US.

     

    E-mail is: danersen@aol.com

     

    I'll appreciate any assistance anyone can provide.

     

    Be Well,

     

    Dan

  12. Hello dand1usa, Chris, et.al.,

     

    I am near Denver, Colorado. You are most welcome to visit.

     

    This is the same instrument and I am the same owner in the post Chris notes. Hard drive crash ... new e-mail address ... and I couldn't easily locate any of my previous log-in records, so I just started over.

     

    I placed the Oct 2005 post shortly after acquiring a 20's amboyna, but almost immediately had serious after-thoughts about parting with it and pulled the post. Now, that some time has passed, I think I am ready to let it go.

     

    It is beautiful - visually and aurally - certainly part of the difficulty in parting company with it. It's a superb concertina not often available in the US.

     

    Be Well,

     

    Dan
