    I owned one of the first GoldTone Mandocello's in the country, and the action at the nut was very high. It did not have a zero fret, it was equipped with a Zero Glide nut which are a very poor...

    Re: Mando Uke conversion

    Re: LH Pain with Hora OM

    Having it setup by an experienced pro will make a lot of improvement, I'm sure. But if the neck is big - use your thumb, and arch your wrist like playing a guitar. Talk to your luthier about it...
