Hey TF,
You made a huge contribution to this site. 
Thank you.
I know how when things go awry one needs to go to ground and deal with the issues.
As you can see, there are many  that care and are here for you.
Wishing you all the best,
Jim

Well done Russell!  Nice production work too.

Thanks for sharing,
Jim     

You can also fix the issue right here if you have saved the song into your songbook.
The edit function lets you right into the raw song code. 

Usually the issue is missing brackets [around the chord] but if you find the chord is in the wrong place - or the wrong chord altogether, you can move and correct it as you please and make any other changes  you deem to be necessary (add/fix lyrics?).  This affects only your songbook so you aren't messing anything up for anyone else - I just tested it again and my changes were not reflected in the original.
The code is fairly intuitive so give it a go...

Good luck wink
Jim

It's been a long while since I even pretended to be an active member of this forum but I see a friend from back then has come to my support (Thank you, it means a lot) so I figured I'd share the story with the rest of you old and new.  This is an incredible bunch of people.

Following a 5 year ordeal with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer, my wife's struggle ended - thankfully, peacefully at home last Friday.  We were lucky to have the resources to both retire and do pretty much what we wanted when we wanted for the past 5 years.  The health system was amazing and the local cancer centre staff couldn't have been better.

I expect I'll be a while processing things but hope to be back here with a comment or two in the not too distant future.

Thanks for being here and all the best!
Jim

Thanks TIG et al,  it really is a beaut.
I think I've found a home for it in my "old stuff" corner by Dad's rolltop desk and a garbage sale cuckoo clock.  I'll post a pic when I get a hanger installed.
Interesting that back in '64 even, intonation hadn't hit the radar (?).  The stain where the bridge was set originally coincides with the catalogue pic Mr Funster shared.  At that angle, it would be in tune at the first position only (at best)  Angled as it is now, the intonation is pretty good all along the neck
Cheers!

Sorry Richard, it's set to public on my Facebook post.
Don't know what else I can do.  I tried to imbed it here but couldn't figure that out.

Framus mando profile

Maybe someone more tech savvy will come to our rescue lol

TF you are right, that skinny fretboard is a bit of a challenge!  Oh well, I'll pick away at it some and see if I can get anywhere with it..

Not really either (?) - I haven't been able to find a picture of any other quite like it.

Hey all, sorry to be such a stranger for so long. 
Lucy's "chemo trail" just seems to take everything there is.
I thought this was a great opportunity to say hi and share some good news... a new Mandolin!
Apparently this was leftover inventory from a guitar shop in Vancouver back in the day.  It's been around the block a couple times but still very pretty.  Now if I could only play the darned thing.

Thanks Roger,

I don't really use the lists much but I thought it was a glitch Per might want to know about.
I get the same trunchated list as you unless I scroll down as far as possible before opening the list.

I am always impressed with the effort you mods put into this site. 
Again, Many thanks!

Hey Roger, sorry so long getting back to you.

I have no idea how to get a screen shot loaded onto here.  Any suggestions?

I find that to see the whole list of songbook filter options, I have to have the screen scrolled up to where the the category twistie (is that really the term?) is right at the top of the screen.

The list I get is
All Songbooks
Absolute beginner
Blues
etc etc etc...
I also have the No Category option.

Hope that helps some,
Jim

Thanks Roger,
Looks good for all filtered files - campfire, misc., etc but still wonky for the "all songbooks" option.
10 songbooks show up but at the bottom indicates "showing 1-0 of 0 public songbooks" and no way to get to other songbooks.

Cheers!
Jim     

Wow, nice job T! That's beautiful.
Love the walnut grain around the bridge and pickup.
Happy pickin'
Jim

Hey Bill!  I was thinking of you earlier today as we wandered the smoke filled streets of Vanderhoof BC.
We came across the following and I thought you might get a kick out of it.

The whole of BC seems to be ablaze and as we travel further east toward home in Prince George it just gets thicker with every mile (Kilometer to us;) 

All the best!
Jim

Greetings!  I’m away from home for a couple days in Haida Gwaii (bc) and really don’t know much about this software but it’s free and seems to have some decent recording functionality.  Traction version 7   I did a search and didn’t see this posted already but my apologies if this is redundant

LOL I wish...  Sadly the Kingman was one of the troubles I had to endure - the banjotar as well.  Wherever we go no, my friend seems to find there amazing deals.  I pick em up for him and  he resells at a pretty good profit.  Wish I knew so much about the vintage market. 
Interesting bridge on the Kingman, each string is intonated individually with an adjustment screw.

Thanks Beamer!  Its nice to have that information. 
Story goes, it was a gift from a visiting diplomat or business contact(?) to the previous owner.

Zurf, I'll get a photo one of these days maybe a sound clip too.
Jim
