Thanks guys, I just got this mandolin from John Irvine. I used to play a Kentucky SM180S, which is nice, but can't compare to this Gibson.
I'm new to MandolinCafe, but have been posting on banjohangout for several months now on the nowhereradio link. I've also got a website you can check out called panthercreekstudios at http://mysite.verizon.net/dknechtbanjo71. On it I've got a new CD of mine called "The Panther Creek Sessions" for sale and you can sample a few songs on it. I used my Kentucky on that recording, except for "Cherokee Shuffle" a great picker named Ashley Lewis played her Dearstone on that one.

Hello Doug,

Great picking! I enjoyed all the tracks. Your F9 is defiantly more pleasing to the ear.

Good luck,
