    Re: Bolt-on neck for f-hole mandolin

    Joining using a Stanley No. 7

    I found all the parts to an ancient Stanley No. 7 that I bought off eBay many years ago. I had planned to clamp it to a bench and use it ala Bill Bussmann.

    Will braided polypropylene rope mar the finish of a mandolin? I am thinking of using it for a strap.
