    Re: Brought home a Buckeye!

    Hey, ManjoMan,

    Thanks for giving another long term update on your Buckeye. I'm just amazed at how #87 plays and sounds so much better after he made the requested "tweaks" to it. That kind of...

    Re: Brought home a Buckeye!

    The finish on the neck has a "speed neck" like feel to it. I thought it might have been lightly sanded but Pete says his finish is three base coats of shellac then lacquer on top. The neck is...
  3. Re: Nut Width for new build - how important, really

    Well, technically, only through natural selection. Ouch!



    As mentioned in the "Brought home a Buckeye!" thread, my fingers typically adapt to just about anything given enough time. But, this...
  4. Re: Nut Width for new build - how important, really

    Hi Shaun,

    I believe that you and I are in the same Flinner class. I'm with Jim Garber in that thickness of the neck may have more to do with things than the width of the nut. Check out my...

    Re: Brought home a Buckeye!

    I moved from the Eff El Lay to the 'Scon after getting engaged to my wife. I lived and practiced in Madison for about a year and a half before we moved to The Land Of Fish Tacos. One of my FPR...

    Re: Brought home a Buckeye!

    Not only was it loud upon first tune up, but it sounded like it had more bass with the mids being rich and gorgeous like never before. While before it had the woody and bright sound of a tone bar...

    Re: Brought home a Buckeye!

    I wanted to give an update on The Buckeye Mandolin #87 originally built for Timmy Jones of Carolina Blue Band. This is a long read so you might want to grab your favorite beverage and settle in. ...

  10. Re: All I want for [insert seasonal holiday of your choice] is .

    For Xmas, I'd like a copy of Homer & Jethro's "Playing It Straight." I know it's not classical but it kinda is for me. For Festivus, I wouldn't mind learning to play on Mandolin "Cello Suite No. 1...

    Wow, Lauren is tearing it up on that Buckeye!
  12. Re: Classical nerd roll call: Lyon & Healy archtops

    It appears that you are right although I was thrown off a bit by your recent text message mentioning the recent acquisition of the L&H in response to my mentioning that I had got my Buckeye back from...
  13. Re: Classical nerd roll call: Lyon & Healy archtops

    Congrats, Hoss! I can't wait to get my indelicate digits all over that thang! Bring it with you the next time you visit the Left Coast. I think you're going to like my new Buckeye F5 a whole lot...
  14. Re: Article: New Music from Mike Compton & Norman Blake: Gallop T

    Well, I was hoping for either standard notation and/or tab for guitar as well as this looks like something my wife and I might enjoy playing together. I'm guessing, based on what Blake is playing in...
  15. Re: Article: New Music from Mike Compton & Norman Blake: Gallop T

    Thanks. I'm looking forward to giving some of these songs a go.
  16. Re: Article: New Music from Mike Compton & Norman Blake: Gallop T

    I think it's also fair to not compare them.



    Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.
  19. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    I dunno, but I had a great big grin on my face a few weeks back when I suddenly found myself hearing Thile and Siouxsie Sioux playing and singing a straight forward rocking cover of Led Zeppelin's...

    Done. I dub thee "Caleb's Law."

    I imagine that the Wikipedia entry will read something like the following:

    I'm aware of several folks who've done something similar in regards to tailoring their degree towards mandolin. I believe that David Benedict of Mandolin Monday's and Mile Twelve fame did...

    I've had iReal Pro for awhile and have mainly used it for practicing Swing Guitar and Gypsy Jazz. I recently did a search on the iPhone App and found that they have new rhythm tracks...
