    Re: Seagull S8 Owners Thread

    I just picked one up. It needs new strings, and I am wondering what Seagull puts on, or what others use. I am thinking a light gauge, not my usual J74s.

    Well, it is back up for sale by the same person, but my reply has gone unanswered for more than 24 hours. Very odd that the owner did not get back to me or anyone else last time, and seems...

    A really nice tune I heard on Outlaw Country today. I found the chorus particularly evocative, even if it runs contrary to the conventional wisdom around here.

    Re: Just staring in to the figure

    The flame on the back my old Hopf violin and the back of my Weber Yellowstone (as well as the medullary rays in the top) are trance inducing indeed. Even the grain on the top of my KM-150 gets me...

    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    So a couple weeks ago I returned the MIM Tele (I had put it in the basement to make room for the Christmas tree, and it was not getting played much). I thought I was over my momentary electric phase....

    Re: Can never enough "Orange"

    I too love Mandolin Orange, and I do like their name. However, when it was noted by someone around here that it might be a play on words (an aspect of the name that had completely eluded me), well,...

    I saw that on a spec sheet but have not seen a photo of of a 300 with the cast tailpiece yet. That would be something.

  12. Re: New player and I need lesions suggestions.

    I have not seen his Bluegrass Mandolin 101 advertised around here recently, so I am not sure if he is still offering it, but from what I saw of his lessons in the open access versions a few years...

    Re: Help deciding on a new mandolin

    Don't know about the Kentucky 505, but $250 is a good price for a KM-250. I love my KM-150, and those go for more than $250 used right now. Not sure what makes the KM-250 and upgrade (looks like a...

    Re: Help deciding on a new mandolin

    Good luck. I love the look of the finish on that 505.

    My 505 was the mandolin that made the phrase 'bell-like tones' make sense to me. A real instrument.

    One more cosmetic difference is the 505 has a bound fingerboard.

    Re: Help deciding on a new mandolin

    505 has a nice cast tailpiece (I really like the Eastman tailpiece) vs the generic cheapo on the 305.
    slightly better tuners I believe on the 505. I think the rest is pretty much the same.

    Re: Help deciding on a new mandolin

    I think $500 is a great price for that 505. I had one and it was a very good mandolin. I think 305's are very good, but you can get them for ~$400 pretty regularly. I would jump on that 505.

    Re: Not all Collings hold their value
