    Re: Straps

    I’m not a big fan of looping a thong around the body under the fingerboard on an A style mandolin. I assume you’re referring to your Collings...if you don’t want to install a pin, go to the headstock...

    Re: Toning down a bright instrument

    I won’t belabor this but so there’s no misunderstanding, I did read the thread before my earlier comment... and my point is that it would have been nice to know the mandolin was a freebie and why it...
  5. Re: Gibson Master Model vs. Ellis F5 with all of his highest opti

    Agree completely. At the time I purchased my Ellis F5 I owned an earlier numbered (1500 range) Collings MF5 blacktop (probably should have kept) but nevertheless I spent about 2 weeks or so with them...

    Re: Toning down a bright instrument

    I always recommend contacting the person or company who made it first and resolve it that way rather than taking it to an open forum like this. So much can go wrong with this process...

    Okay, I’ll bite on a 12 year old thread because I like the tune as well. Here’s the Forward Backsteppers from Oz a few years back.

    Re: No mando content: Remembering Ginger Baker

    What more to say. One of the all time greats, maybe the greatest... can’t help being reminded of Jaco, his undeniable musical genius and intense struggle with his own personal demons.

    Re: Dots or no dots

    Clean fingerboard on my 5jr. I can’t actually recall when (if ever) I looked to locate a marker on the fretboard.

    Re: Pre Gibson Epiphone Mandolin

    Total respect, I’ve been a fan of the machine for years. His current lineup kills.
    There’s a great story that accompanies that guitar btw when Rawlings was living in LA. It’s part of his DNA.

    It’s a combined sense on a cold instrument, I can hear it as well as feel it as it’s warming up.

    Re: Collings MT2 Review

    I would agree with your conclusion. The greatest noticeable changes I’ve experienced with early playtime is increased depth and roundness in the lower and mid register.
