I have been processing and wrapping and welding and programing and .....Well I just took some pictures! I am looking at this as a spring cleaning opportunity. So first off:

I have about 40 or 50 sets of 2A or so Archtop Mandolin sets. Since we now have a Mando subforum I thought I should start with these. Let's move them out for $18 per set. Great practice, awesome for bursts and actually are just fine clear coated as well...although Hesh would paint them black laughing6-hehe !

I have at least 4 (and probably a few more) WRC Arch mando sets as well. $20 each.

Next, I am getting overrun with orphan and "issue" sets. These are great for back strips, soundhole patches, even classical fan braces. I am selling these for $7 per pair. Some may be matched sets others will be orphans and I won't be sorting (except the real ugly ones will make firewood). I have over 200 or more of these. Remember that shipping is a minimum of like $15 and up for a package that would be 4 pieces so ordering one of two will cost you more in shipping. Many of these sets will have defects that won't allow any guitar pattern, some are near mastergrade orphan sets, all will make for usable pieces in guitar making!

People are regularly asking about nice typical Honduras Mahogany back and side sets. Well how about these: I have about 40 sets ready to go. The nice cleans ones are $70 and I have some with worm holes (black CA or epoxy is the fix!) that I will let go for $50.

More in the next post.

Next a bunch of bangin' bubinga at blow out prices (I need a loud polyester suit [xx(] )

Anyway, these are wonderfully figured sets of premium tonewood. I only have a few still with sapwood. But I do have about 65 or so sets of this stuff and I only advertise it on the swap meets so far. But now I could use the space for other items I am thinking about so I have priced these to move.


***NOTE*** I have written the price of each set in white chalk right on the back. Make the picture larger (double click it) and the price is there. If this isn't easy for you I will post the price on each set. Thanks...... oops_sign

Hi Glenn,

I wrote the prices right on each set. When you enlarge them to see the fine figure the price is there as well in white chalk. Would it be better if I just wrote the prices below each set? Maybe I will do that anyway!

Thanks to you and Joe White for pointing out my poor salesman ship laughing6-hehe . Oh well....

Still laughing (at myself!)

Shane

You bet Zach. Do you want this wrapped and shipped or do you want to wait a bit and see what else I end up posting? I am sending a bunch of packages tomorrow and the next shipment will be later in the week.

Thanks

Shane

Thanks Mark and Michael. I have those items marked as yours. I will hold for a couple of days and then send PM's for shipping info and payment arrangements. I will be adding more stuff over the next couple of days.

A couple of more items!

First up some Sperzel tuners, these are very nice and a few acoustics makers use them but a LOT of electric makers really like these well made and light tuning keys. I have 3 sets of gold and one black. $30 per set.

Attachment:
Sperzel.jpg


Since we are on tuners, who about a few sets of Gotoh SG381's, 4 chrome (at $28 each) and 3 gold (at $35 each). Note that one of the chrome sets has "Gibson" style buttons (second from left).

Attachment:
Gotoh pegs.jpg


Next I am moving away from Gotoh truss rods as I am starting to make rods myself and will introduce a double acting rod soon. So there are two sizes, 15.875" overall length and 16.875 overall length. I have 20 long ones and 11 short ones. $9 each!!

Attachment:
Gotoh rods.jpg


Last on this post are a set of radius dishes made especially for vacuum presses. I paid over $500 to have these made but have decided to stay with go-bars as I will be making a bunch of different radius dishes and searching for the radius I like. Plus I just like my go-bar deck. Anyway, I am taking a big hit by selling these 3/4" acrylic premium CNC made dishes for $385. There is a 15', 25' and 30' radius. There are two tops, one with fabric that has a crack in a corner joint and another one piece one that we made but that does not have fabric yet, you will need to do that. They have never been used, only tested.

More stuff coming later.

Which Sperzel tuners are they?? Are they the trim locks? ie: locking? Or just the standards? If they're the trim locks would you be willing to do $100 for all 4 sets?

They Are the standard ones Chris. I have a couple sets of trim locks but I am keeping them.

I'll take the black set and a gold set of the Sperzels. Maybe you can get them in the other package that's heading my way today?
Thanks.

I promised myself I was either going to stay out of this swap or unload some stuff to bring in some cash, but what the heck… Shane, do you have any Gotoh mandolin tuners? I’m interested in both A and F-style ones, ivorid knobs if possible.

Arnt, All I have on hand is one gold "A" set with black buttons, but in the spirit of the meet and since you broke down barriers to get here I can order you some in with ivoriod buttons either "A" or "F". Gold would be $75 and Nickel would be $60. Those are even cheaper than LMI's "multiples" prices.

Thanks

Shane

You got it Keith. They will go out in about 45 minutes! So you can send the $60 in the same manner as the last funds if you like.

Thanks

Shane,
What species are the mando cuts and what are their dimensions and grain direction? They appear to be slabs and not wedges... is this typical of the lot?
thanks,
chris

Hi Chris, these are slabs, .875 x 5.875 x 16 (approx). I have been supplying regularly to Roger Siminoff for about 6 years and this is his preferred format. These are all lutz spruce and quarter sawn for the most part. Some may be a little off quarter but not too much (that is one of the down grading factors) but most just have a colour or wider or uneven grain lines, things like that. If these were figured backs wedges would be better so that you could capture the book match better, but as these are spruce with little to no figure wedges have little advantage and take longer to process. That is my thoughts anyway and they mirror those of guys like Roger (for mandos) and Peter Hopkins and Mario Beauregard (for archtop guitars). Anyway that is what they is and why they is!!

Thanks Chris

Shane

What I'm looking for are some inexpensive tops that are ukulele size. In fact, I believe others are looking for the same. Looking for 14" long and 10"-10.25" wide. Two pieces or one piece of Lutz, spruce, cedar. I can accept some color as long as the tops as stiff. Looking for clean wood with no defects since I won't be painting mine black like Hesh.

Philip


Philip,

I just sent a few sets off to Kerry Char for Ukes. So here is the deal. I have about 50 or so sets that have an issue for guitars but they can be reprocessed to uke or mandolin sets. I saved a bunch for some projects I am thinking about as well. Anyway, they are $15 per set and some will make mastergrade small instrument sets. Since I will not be reprocessing these they will be shipped in guitar sizes so shipping to the US will be a minimum of $15 so buying one set may not be the way to go.

Thanks

Shane


Shane,

I would like 4 sets please. A PM is also on the way.

Philip
