  1. Re: Varnish finish vs lacquer - durability question

    Buy what you want and play the hell out of it! You've seen Monroe's Loar? Or Mike Marshalls? Willie's Trigger? Don also offered excellent advice on using a thin, clear piece of plastic where you...

    Stunning!
  3. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I seem to recall a pretty famous acoustic musician saying "It's a Gibson, it'll have to do...." Kinda sums things up IMHO!

    As an aside, the Harvey built mandolins I've played have all been fine...

  13. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    So no one should ever make an F5 except Gibson? I reckon we should stop all guitar builders from using the dreadnaught, OM, 000, 00, etc. body shapes too???
