    Great Random Purchase

    Hey everybody!
    I bought this mandolin from the ol' eBay about three years back. The ad listing was so basic. I believe it was listed as "8-String Mandolin." The description was nearly as vague! I...

    Re: Accurate Electronic Tuner?

    Re: What luthiers were engineers first?

    Howard Morris (Morris mandolins) does not use truss rods in any of his builds, that I'm aware of. I read somewhere that he feels no need for them, & of course it keeps costs down. I own #192, built...
