Glad to be a new member. I love the posts.
I bought a WA Cole Banjo Mandolin needing work. A cleanup, new skin, new Ebony peg head veneer and a new nut and bridge later and she tunes up pretty good - except - the 7-8 string don't ring after the 10th fret. 1-6 ring nicely all the way out to 15.
Thoughts are appreciated.
