    Re: Daily Cleaning Routine

    I tickle the strings as often as possible to keep it awake. Other than that, I'll take a little polish to it every now and again if it feels grubby. That might happen once or twice a year. I...
  2. Re: Something unique: Phoenix Custom 'Blue Mahoe'

    Man. Beautiful craftsmanship and I'm all for innovation, but the tone doesn't appeal to me at all. Maybe it's the moosebone nut. It reminds me of a Mid Missouri I briefly owned.

    Re: One Mandolin - forever...

    This question is irrelevant to me unless y'all want to send me your extra mandolins. I'll even pay shipping. Maybe.
  6. Wow. Wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing that.

  7. Re: Amazing video of Josh Luttrell finishing an Ellis

    Just what I needed to see today. I love the inlay on that headstock by the way. That's one of the prettiest I've seen, even from Tom Ellis.
  8. Re: Old Time Jamming/music around east Dallas Tx

    Sounds great. I would enjoy the heck out of that.
  9. Re: Old Time Jamming/music around east Dallas Tx

    I don't know if it's still going on, but for a long time they used to have a Monthly or weekly (I'm not sure which) jam on the Garland town square. I went once about a decade ago and it was a really...

    Re: Octave Mandolin suggestions please

    Have you considered Pono's line of guitar-bodied octaves? I've got a mahogany bodied one (a MND-20) that is terrific. I'm sure it's a different animal than either of the ones you're looking at, but...

    Re: "blown away by this mandolin"

    Thanks Subby for making my GAS/MAS seem tame. Well, maybe not tame, but at least not wildly out of the norm. Congrats on the new wood and wire.

    Re: What's your new fiddle tune?

    Those are both on my to-do list. I learned Chinquapin Hunting last year on guitar and really like it but haven't found anyone to play it with. Just learned Flowers of Edinburgh on mandolin last...

    Re: Delfest Postponed

    Steve Kaufman has had to cancel his acoustic Kamp in Tenn. this year, which is also a bummer.

    Re: Happy Birthday Norman Blake

    Norman literally changed my life from almost the first note I heard on "The Essential Norman Blake." I'd never heard anything like it, and instantly knew I wanted to chase after it. Going on two...

    Re: Reduce costs pleased

    Technically that would be a run on fiddles, and a run from accordians and banjos.

    Great thread. I may send Grant Gordy a note. He's phenomenal.
  18. Re: Do You Play ALL of Your Mandolins Regularly?

    I've started putting my guitars on weekly rotation. Each week, I play one designated guitar for the week. I've only got three mandolins, not including the ocrtave, so it hasn't come to that yet...
  19. Re: #TBT Mando Madness at Nacogdoches, Texas bluegrass festival!

    Fantastic pictures! I'm surprised Kelly Lancaster and Dave Peters aren't somewhere in there. At least I don't recognize Kelly. I didn't know Dave.
  20. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    My first ever mandolin was a Rouge I bought off of amazon for about $50 new. It was a contender for the worst instrument I ever owned (although was maybe edged out by an unplayable Washburn travel...

    Re: Learning to play with one less finger

    Best wishes on a quick recovery. I'd think learning to compensate on mandolin would be easy compared with the challenge of mastering mathematics in base nine. Good luck on both!

    Re: Why do people only sell the great ones?

    I sold a Collings MT I'd love to have back to fund a custom that didn't sound nearly as good to my ears. I don't know that it was the best I've ever played, but it was mighty good.

    Re: Anyone seen an Eastman El Rey?

    It looks neat. Sort of like a little Les Paul. That said, I wouldn't trade my Pono octave for one. It's killer.

    Re: In case or on stand?

    At home most of of my guitars and mandolins are hanging on my wall, with a couple of exceptions that don't get played a lot. The easier they are to reach, they more often they get played. I live in...
