Re: New mandolin - push-back from spousal unit
Brian and I are in the process of working out some kind of mutually acceptable arrangement. He's a thoroughly good person.
In addition, I've decided not to go for a top of the line instrument. $6200 fell out of the sky and I don't think I want to spend more than that. I'm a consultant to a large company that's in the process of "re-structuring", so I don't know what my working future holds.
I still feel entitled to spend manna from heaven, but not to dip into savings.
So we're looking at the Collings MF and Webers in the same basic price range.
Keep ya posted. (And notice that I haven't parenthesized anything?) Uhhhhhhhhh. Oooops. :-)
