    Re: No pickguard finish scratches

    The ebony guard on my mandolin is worn a lot and would be really bad on the top. 10+ years of gigging and a lot of playing/jamming when not gigging.

    Re: Shop goodwill flatiron

    I thought it might be a reflection too, but it's the same reflection in two different shots. One only showing the bottom of the neck near the heel, but the same gloss in the center.

    Re: Shop goodwill flatiron

    It could be someone has sanded the sides leaving the middle glossy. Not sure why they would do that, but if they grafted in new wood why spray only the new wood and not the whole neck? Looks weird...

    Re: more accurate clip on tuner than Snark?

    Unitune is the next best thing to a Peterson. It can be a regular tuner or a more accurate strobe tuner. They are also not too expensive, $28.99 at Sweetwater. The Polytune is more expensive and not...

    Re: 1917 Gibson A "Mint Condition"

    If you have a different gauge of strings, or the humidity has swollen the instrument and changed the action, the intonation will change even if it was right when you bought it.

    Re: recommend me an acoustic bass

    A 1/2 bass will sit in the seat like a person if you do it right. I could get it in my Honda civic. They sound quite good and are loud enough, especially for just a mandolin.

    Re: glue for temporary attachment of copper inlay

    Nearly any glue will release with heat, especially on copper. Copper heats easily and evenly. Thin any glue, hide, titebond, whatever and heat will even more easily release it.

    Re: Gibson String Height

    Per my post above it should be 2/64 on the E and 3/64 not 32 on the G. I usually measure in 32's and didn't make the change when I typed it, sorry.

    Re: Gibson String Height

    I have mine setup low, but I wouldn't do it this low for everyone as it can get finicky with humidity changes. I am willing to do what it takes to keep it low. It is just showing the line at 2/32 for...

    Re: Which Budget Fingerstyle Guitar?

    The New York Martins were one of the few wider neck acoustics available at the time, other than a classical guitar. They made a few 0 and 00 both in the NY model. I think they had a 1 7/8' nut if I...

    Re: Which Budget Fingerstyle Guitar?

    When these were made there weren't a lot of smaller guitars suited for finger style. You would have to buy something old. When I quit dreads I bought a 1924 0-28K Martin. Never played anything bigger...

    Re: Which Budget Fingerstyle Guitar?

    I like a 1 3/4" nut, it gives you more room for your fingesr to move. I use chord shapes and play melodies so using more fingers at a time than flat picking. I also like a 12 fret neck and small...

    Re: Resoldering k&k twin foot?

    Be sure to tin the wire, if you strip it, before you solder it to the disc. If there is solder on it simply resolder it.

    I think you can buy a single if it doesn't work for you, it should tho.

    Re: Resoldering k&k twin foot?

    Well since it doesn't work now I would try and solder it. Be careful and use a good technique. It would actually be an open, not a short.
