Basic Music Theory For Banjo Players

Photo for Ad 129384

This book is a "hands-on" approach to music theory with lots of playing examples for the banjo. Music theory does not have to be mysterious or difficult. In fact, taken a little bit at a time, it’s easy and fun! Each of the approximately 50 lessons in this book has a limited scope, but by the time you complete them, you will have a thorough understanding of the basics of music theory as applied to the banjo.

While a single book can't cover everything in so vast a subject, the author has tried to choose topics that will address the needs of most beginning banjo players. These include: scale theory, reading tablature and standard notation, key signatures, accidentals, transposition, time signatures and note values, intervals and chord construction, the three kinds of minor scales, pentatonic scales, and more. In addition, each chapter features playing examples and review questions to both test and clarify understanding of the materials presented.

Rather than proceeding from chapter to chapter, as each individual banjo player is likely at a different point in their musical journey, the reader is encouraged to “jump around and spend more time in those areas that interest you most.” The important thing about the journey is to begin.

Includes access to online audio and video.

Gilchrist Model 5 Reduced

Photo for Ad 129383

This is an extremely nice 1995 Gilchrist Model 5 Mandolin. Tone bar bracing with Sugar Maple back and sides and a Red Spruce top. Slight radius to the fingerboard. Mandolin is very, very clean. Dark Cremona finish. It has the vintage Gibson sound that is hard to find in a newer instrument. New Waverly tuners. Fresh setup by Lynn Dudenbostel and it plays and sounds amazing. This is a superb instrument. $17,500 OBO. Would rather deal with someone in person than ship. Thanks!

Collings Om1 A Jl Traditional - Julian Lage

Photo for Ad 129381

This Collings - OM1 A JL Traditional - Julian Lage Signature is in a word, special. A signature model based on a collaboration between lauded guitarist Julian Lage and the late Bill Collings, this OM1A JL reaches a new level of vintage-inspired design at Collings. Featuring a distinct, focused, open tone - even more so than the usual Traditional models - this OM1 A JL is resonate and dynamic with a clear fundamental across the fingerboard.

A part of the growing new Traditional series, this JL is highlighted by traditional style bracing and tone woods which are adjusted, weighed and voiced to produce particularly warm, rounded highs while maintaining a full, rich low end. The extra thin Nitrocellulose lacquer finish, hand rubbed to a Satin appearance, is applied without a polyvinyl sealer, making for a lively, expressive top that has the feel of an old vintage guitar. The Traditional Series tone is further enhanced by the use of Animal Protein glue, which can dry harder making every joint of this OM1A JL that much more resonate and powerful.

This particular Traditional OM1A JL features a gorgeous Adirondack Spruce top that produces tons of volume with plenty of head room. Combined with a classic Mahogany back and sides making this is one full sounding OM. The neck features a Custom JL profile which is based of scans and measurements of Julian's 1939 Martin 000-18 and features an extremely comfortable rounded fretboard edge.

This model truly sounds unlike any Collings guitar we've had through the shop and makes for a very exciting expansion of the Traditional series. Includes the custom built Collings Traditional case, and a free setup from our luthiers.

OM with Extra thin Nitrocellulose Hand Rubbed Satin Lacquer finish with Wood and Tortoise-style binding
Custom Traditional Pre-War Scalloped bracing with no tongue brace
Adirondack Spruce top with Tortoise-style pickguard and toner
Mahogany back & sides back and sides with a 1-style walnut backstrip
25 1/2" scale length
Mahogany neck with Custom JL profile based on Julian's 1939 Martin 000-18
Ebony fingerboard with 14" - 26" compound radius, 20 Medium 18% nickel-silver frets and Gold Mother-of-Pearl microdot inlays
1 11/16" nut width, bone
Bone Drop-in saddle with 2 3/16" string spacing

Trade 2009 Gerald Anderson D-18 For Mandolin

Photo for Ad 129378

2009 Gerald Anderson D-18 - Trade even or +cash for a mandolin; A or F model with 1 3/16th wide nut.

For those unfamiliar with Gerald Anderson, he is a southwest Virginia luthier who began making instruments over 30 years ago in Wayne Henderson’s guitar shop. So, he learned from one of the Masters. He shared a workspace with Henderson until the spring of 2005, when Anderson moved his tools and instruments into the bottom level of his own home in Troutdale, VA. Over the past 30 years, Anderson has made over 110 guitars and over 160 mandolins.

The guitar is #62. Sitka spruce top, mahogany back, sides & neck, tortoise pickguard and body binding, open-gear Grover tuners, and a rosewood fingerboard & bridge. The neck is on the slimmer side and with a 1 11/16" nut width, making it very comfortable for playability. Careful attention to detail on the build, aesthetically pleasing, and the guitar has been well-cared for cosmetically. Comes in a hardshell case.

Phoenix Bluegrass $2850

Photo for Ad 129377

The Phoenix Bluegrass was made in 2000 by Rolfe. I just recently had a fret job done on it so you get brand new frets. Has a k&k pickup professionally installed. Comes with originally hard case. It sounds great and has an amazing chop. I had one professionally repaired small crack that was on the top of the mandolin you can hardly even notice it. I'd say its in pretty good condition but it just has been played cause it's a great mandolin. If you are serious about buying i'll answer any questions or send you any pictures you request. Here is a link to a guy playing this exact mandolin they give a good description too. https://youtu.be/C70bjnbYG5I

Pava A5 Mandolin - Sunburst Satin - UK

Photo for Ad 129376

This beauty has absolutely incredible tone! Its one of the best sounding mandolins I've ever played. It has remarkable volume and achieves that rare feat of having fantastic depth and resonance at the same time as clarity and cut (bluegrass players please note, the chop is outstanding).

No question here of what styles of playing it is suitable for, it will do everything from quiet and gentle to loud and aggressive.

1964 Gibson Lg1 Guitar

Photo for Ad 129374

(Serial No. 216537) Excellent condition with a replaced pickguard. Well played and structurally sound small body Gibson with more volume and tone than you would expect for the size. It has the typical finish checking and shows some playing wear. I took this down to a old time jam here in town and it has good volume and the right tone for old time. The LG-1 was introduced along with the LG-2 and LG-3 as a lower-end student model during World War II. All three models were very similar, and the LG-1 featured mahogany back and sides with a spruce top. As an entry level guitar, the LG-1 used lateral or ladder style bracing. Eventually, the LG series was supplanted by the B series as Gibson's main student-level acoustic flattop. The ladder bracing gives a different tone than the X braced guitars, not quite as punchy. Everything is original. Sunburst finish, traditional ladder braced Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides, Brazilian rosewood fretboard with pearl inlays and a Brazilian rosewood bridge. Has the standard Gibson nut width of 1 11/16 inch. The Kluson tuners are original and work well. The frets are in good shape and the neck is straight. Nice tall saddle but still a comfortable action. Frets are good, neck is straight, neck set is good. Comes with a newer foam hard shell case...USD $1850

New Waterloo Wl-Jk DLX

$2,610.00

Case: Waterloo case

Description: Lowe Vintage is an Authorized Dealer for Waterloo Guitars!

Full-bodied in both tone and stature, the aptly nicknamed "Jumbo King" is the largest size offering in the Waterloo line and a modern day tribute to jumbo-sized guitars of the early 1940s. Originally manufactured by Regal for the mail-order enterprise Montgomery Ward, this slope-shoulder body size was designed to provide performers of the era with enough volume and power for professional radio work. The WL-JK accomplishes this and more by employing a full five-inch body depth and a slightly narrow waist to enhance both the bass and treble response.

This WL-JK DLX features a spruce top with mahogany back & sides as well as added "DLX" appointments that include added bindings, true-to-era "valve cover" tuners, and a full-body sunburst finish. It also features vintage inspired x-bracing, a prominent v-shaped neck, and a fully adjustable truss rod. All Waterloo models are handmade in Austin, Texas.

In excellent shape- requires nothing. Original finish, no touch-up. Original tuners, original ivory nut, original pickguard. Pre-war scalloped bracing, Adirondack spruce top with no cracks, Honduran Mahogany back and sides. 1 11/16” nut.

And here is something special: it has an original, full-height, never-shaven-down ebony bridge and original maple bridge plate in excellent condition. Long saddle. The neck is properly set-- the angle is exactly right- plenty of saddle. The frets are new and to vintage Martin spec.

Fat bass, clear trebles- you’ll know this sound. And it’s pretty darn loud. It vibrates against your body- you can feel it. The serial number #776XX, was stamped on May 8, 1941 and cleared final inspection on June 10, 1941-- a true pre-war.

What’s not original? Not much! Here are the details:

-There is a filled jackhole on the side lower bass bout.
-The tailpiece once had a ¼” jack installed-- this has been restored-- no longer original.
-The pins and the saddle are not original.

There are two cracks on the shoulder, treble side. They are repaired, stable and ‘good to go’. Except for that, there are no cracks anywhere on the instrument. Comes with a contemporary Martin hardshell case.

Plenty of honest playwear and mojo, but nothing extreme. Fingerboard is original- the divots have been filled and levelled. It’s got a big sound, plenty of bottom, top, and middle- a very nice example of a pre-war D-18. Hi res photos and videos are available.

Price REDUCED to 17,500 plus shipping. It is a true beauty, but I just never really bonded with it, and would like to free up the cash for when I see something I’d like more. Please note I'm in the SF Bay area. You are welcome to check it out personally for in-hand inspection, or ship to you.

Thanks!

1991 Kentucky KM 1500

Photo for Ad 129360

1991 Kentucky KM 1500

As new, unplayed, serial number 91XXX; built in Japan during Kentucky’s golden Sumi era. This one has a flat fret board, gold hardware white top binding, white-black-white side binding and fern headstock inlay. Two-piece flamed maple back and a scooped fretboard extension. It has the original Superior rectangle case, in almost new condition, which still has the protective plastic on the label.

A wonderful example, as if you bought it in 1991. This one has been stored since new.

$2,400 plus your choice of shipping.

Turtle Hill Bluegrass Woody 5 String Resonator Banjo

Photo for Ad 129359

Extreme curly maple wood;

Honey, satin finish;

Tony Pass Lost Timbre rim;

Kirschner tailpiece;

Gotoh tuning machines;

MOP inlays

Excellent sound with lighter weight - It weighs 8 lbs.

Spikes at frets 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12.

Small amount of fret wear, nothing serious near the nut

Currently strung with GHS PF150 strings. Extra set will be included.

The only issue (if you can call it that) is there was a sliding 5th string capo on the banjo that has been removed. You can see the fill marks in the side of the binding but cannot feel them.

Access Hardshell case

Banjo now has a Sosebee .656 bridge instead of the bridge shown in the pictures. I think this improved the sound and the playability

There is a review on BHO under Turtle Hill banjos

Best I can determine it was made in 2006, as were all the Turtle Hill Woody banjos, so there is a limited number of them available.

I have a video and more pictures for the serious potential buyer.

$1,450

"As New" Eastman F5 Model 515Cs w/Case & Free Delivery

Photo for Ad 129357

Just in the shop, an "as new" Eastman Model 515CS taken as a trade-in. According to the former owner, this Eastman is only about 30 days old and its' appearance certainly backs up his claim....there's not a mark or sign of wear anywhere on this mandolin.

The mandolin has a flamed maple two-piece back, sides, and three-piece neck. The body and sunburst spruce top are finished in nitrocellulose lacquer. Hardware consists of a nickle-plated, cast tailpiece, nickel-plated tuners w/ pearloid buttons, adjustable ebony bridge and 1 & 3/32" bone nut. The fret board is radiused and has medium weight, nickle-silver frets.

Just a really good mandolin, no matter the intended use....it has a great set-up and is easy playing. It has lots of volume, a big bluegrass chop and sounds great.... way better tone, than a lot of mandolins costing significantly more. Eastman's suggested retail price is $1,250.00. THIS MANDOLIN IS PRICED AT $850.00, including the factory hard case and FREE DELIVERY.

1964 Martin D-18 Ex+ $3750

Photo for Ad 129355

This guitar is extremeley clean and in exceptionally fine all orignal condition, with the exception of a newer saddle and a recent neck re-set. It sounds great and plays wonderfully. There is the common B string crack and the orignal pickguard is curling very slightly at the edges.

Staff at TR Crandall here in NYC inspected the guitar and told me the frets and bridge plate were original and that the guitar has had a pro neck reset. They also said they didn't see any overspray or refinish anywhere.

More than happy to provide complete detailed pics.

Non original vintage chipboard case -- can source a hard case for shipping if desired.

Price is $3750 paypal, insured FEDEX shipping to CONUS included. Local sales encouraged!

Thanks!
