    Re: Gibson BANJO. NMC

    Check the classifieds on www.banjohangout.org

    There are several comparable Gibsons for sale at prices ranging from $2800 - $3500. I would think that $3000 is a fair price depending on condition.

  7. Re: Easy small modification to Eastman 305 fretboard extension

    Steve,
    That looks nice! There is always more than one way to skin a cat. On another note, I really liked John Prine and am totally bummed out that he is gone!

    Re: mass produced instruments & size variations

    I should have added that I got it from The Mandolin Store. When asked, in their opinion, the Eastman was a better choice. Great service, advice, and a very nice setup on the instrument, too.

    Re: mass produced instruments & size variations

    I have never played a Kentucky, but I really like my Eastman 305. I've had it for about a year now, and am still impressed with the workmanship and materials. The tone (IMO) is very good as well.

  13. Re: Ukulele Chords Played on Mandolin: Something is Wrong

    If I understand your dilemma correctly, yes you just need to use mandolin chord shapes to play each as shown on your music site. If the guitar chord is "G" then you use a mandolin "G" chord shape on...
