    Re: Carbon Fiber Mandolin

    I have the Glasser 4 and 5 string fiddles with a pickup. The 4 string without the pickup is quite light. Glasser does a great job, even over those buildersí instruments that are thousands more. ...

    Re: Ellis F5 Fern at Gryphon

    It would be less apt to slip off wherever you placed it. Rough surface of the strings versus the smooth back.

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    They may dial it back, as they did with the guitar models, but right now I’d say it’s a shade heftier than their MTO necks, which is a wide round profile. If you are looking for something more like...

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    Itís nothing like the Collings. Remember, itís a recreation of the Kalamazoo. Very rounded and heftier.

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    About five or six years ago, there was a guy down in Florida selling vintage Kalamazoo guitars for over $3k, which I thought was insane. I just took a quick look on Reverb, and there’s a few at $2k...

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    There’s no margin left for dealers after the recent changes to “deal”, especially with free shipping. $1750 is THE price.

    Instruments are costing dealers more now, so unless their stock is from...

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    I received mine today from TME. Totally what I expected from Waterloo and Collings. If you are expecting something akin to their MT2 oval holes, this is not for you, but if you are looking for that...

    Try getting insurance or being able to get another policy after filing a few claims. Those signs put everyone on notice, and if they are not enforceable, criminal damage is still a crime. Depending...

    Re: Ellis F5 Fern at Gryphon

    Stores will get stuff and give their regular customers a heads up. I’ve bought plenty of instruments that never made it to the store’s websites. So, the Artist models may just come in and go out.

    Re: eBay sales tax

    It’s sad, because there are so few stores in New Hampshire that sell mandolins, especially high end stores. In fact, I believe only Northern Lights in Littleton sustains any kind of inventory, and...

    Mike, if you live in N.J. and buy from a company in NH, you are required to pay N.J. sales tax. Thatís always been the law, but the seller was never required to collect the tax when they collected...

    I have played the Calhouns. I think if you play one of these and play the Calhoun you will understand the price difference.

    And yet if they were at another dealer, they might be gone. I’ve seen mandolins on dealer sites I’d love to buy, but have no desire to deal with that dealer or their shop.

    I have a pack of these Fender picks. Not bad, but I went back to my Wegens for mandolin. I like the RADEX for guitar. Has anyone tried the Fender Tru-shell picks?

    Whoever has been voicing the mandolins recently has really hit their stride. I got a new MT2v, all torrified, a few weeks back which is probably one of the best mandolins I have played from them. ...
