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

    You should try being a violinist. So limited on design, so little choice.

    How is the spacing? The spacing on the first Warren Ellis tenor was quite wide.

    Strings for magnetic pickups

    I have an El Rey electric mandolin with magnetic pickups. My question is: do different string metals make a difference as to magnetic response? Should I avoid brass/bronze metals?

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    The Godin A8 might be more of what you are looking for if you want a more acoustic sound. I have both and would chose the El Rey over the Godin if I had to pick one.

    Re: Tiny Moore electric 5-string lesson

    I'm digging that 5 string too. I'm guessing I'm not the only one that had trouble with intonation on the 5th string. The fanned frets seem like a great idea for 5 stringers.
