    Re: Setup, Setup, Setup!

    It was a modification. I never meant to suggest anything else. But, I think this modification—including the several modifications Bruce made to my mandolin—all come under the heading of a setup....

    The truth about Eastman octaves

    This is a PSA. If you don’t want to sound like this, avoid them at all costs!

    Re: RIP Jerry Jeff Walker

    Aww. Too bad. Great songwriter. He had a good long life, though -- longer than I would've expected. I guess he's finally off of the LA freeway.

  11. Re: PRETTY Collings Custom MF FLAME looks like a real auction on

    Your right again. I consider $975 a lot of movement, but at $3700 that's a real good deal. I haven't seen any priced that low.

    I've been a fan for decades. I was sorry to hear of his passing. There's actually a Facebook group devoted to Michael if anyone is interested.
