    Epiphone Mandobird VIIIs, too.

    Jim, you rock! Thanks!

    After hearing it: It's got a bit of Lonesome Fiddle Blues about it, that's for sure.

    Oh, here's a link that embeds the start time:

    Re: What's your new fiddle tune?

    Has anyone ever come across a fiddle tune called "Flight to D.C."? (Yeah, try searching for it. Nearly impossible.)

    a Dm tune, I believe.

    Found this one vid, but wondering if anyone has seen...

    I ran the Pono through its paces for a couple of weeks. I really loved the tone and the body shape, and the...

    Re: Pono - KR Strings Octave

    Well, I went ahead and got one of these from Kilin Reese. I love it. Great tone, really bell like. Having a blast with it.

    I love the guitar body, and it really balances well with a strap.

    But...

    Re: A-string intonation issue?

    The A-pair is notorious for being finicky (where the A strings are out of unison), and plenty of theories abound. If you search for "finicky pair" on the forum, you'll find multiple threads on the...

  12. Re: Mandolin case question -- is the sheet necessary?

    The Bobelock that I got with my Sprite has it.

    Yeah, it makes for a dramatic reveal; plus, tucking it in is a nice ritual when returning the mandolin to the case.

    Re: Collings MT2 tone guard ?

    For a tone gard on a varnish finish, I agree with this:



    And yeah, for an A-style, strap under the fretboard extension. It's the right thing to do. Wear, yeah, maybe a little. A little.

    Re: If You Had A Gibson Lloyd Loar Mandolin

    The dollar value is one thing, but is the instrument so sonically amazing that it trumps every other mandolin in the stable that you'd be obliged to bring it to jams/gigs/fests? I've never played a...

    Re: Tom Ellis A4

    Yah, that's a beauty, for sure.

    I'm not saying Tom doesn't build them, or that they don't exist, but I don't know that I've heard the term "A4" to describe them. That's all.

    Re: Tom Ellis A4

    No worries! I'm sure the terms have become interchangeable, with all ovals being 4's and F-holes being 5's. But I rarely see a longer-necked oval-hole using the "4" designation. That was the whole...

    Sorry, I didn't mean to compare tone/playability/fit-finish/workmanship between Tom Ellis' mandolin and an old Gibson. Totally not the point of my post.
