D'Addario EXP74CM Strings's perspectve on the Year 2014 In Review.

Serious neck crack but still cool: this 1907 Gibson F-2. Non-original TP cover. We'll call it a "project."

Stolen: in Rome, Italy, three mandolins. Additional pictures posted on our forum.

New, would be a good source for choro fans: Classics Of Brazilian Choro Benedicto Lacerda.

20% off Mike Marshall's School of Mandolin subscriptions. Enter MIKE20 at purchase.

Rest in peace, Bill Crahan, a very good friend and gigging partner of 25+ years left us only 12 hours after playing tunes for him.

If old mandolins could talk, the stories they'd tell us: where ya been, '25 Gibson F-2, one owner?

Lots of interesting highlights, new music and more from our 2014 Year In Review.
