    Re: Breedlove AM OF

    I had a Oregon made KF for a while. I liked the plain finish and design. The neck was pretty substantial and rounded. I didn't think it sounded any better or worse than my Eastman F Hole mandolin. ...

    Re: I don't like F styles. Anyone else?

    I'm willing to bet that if we presented people with 10 instruments built from the same woods by the same builder, same neck/body join, same soundholes with 5 being A shaped and 5 F shaped, no one...

    Re: Eastman 805 Review

    Variety is the spice of life. But a good solid reproducible cuppa Joe is a delight. I have a mandolin I think I will keep forever while I could let any of the others go. I wish I could say the...

    Re: Bardic inspiration for role playing games.

    I'll second the music from Allan Alexander. I have several of his books. They are easy enough and you can get the idea enough to add ornamentation if that's your thing.

    Re: Newbie from Texas says Howdy

    Welcome to the Café! First mandolins can cover a lot of ground. I wrote this 10 years ago and it still applies. Maybe use D'Addario EJ-74s (rebranded) and make it $10 on picks. As a guitar...

    Re: Info on this Mandolin

    To my (not too refined eye) it looks like one of the massed produced mandolins from the early 1900s made in Chicago (going by scratch plate) they were often rebranded under many names. Can you post...
