    There was a question about the tailpiece on the new Waterloo mandolins. It's one piece, strings attached, and manufactured by Collings specifically for this model.

    I don't think you can make a fair assessment of the mandolin from a low resolution picture taken at an angle and posted on a website.

    Re: Why old time and bluegrass are not the same.

    I have to disagree with that. Nothing is "dying out" and being replaced by free-form sessions and jams in my part of the USA, anyway. Maybe you're just located too close to Berklee? Too many young,...

    Re: Why old time and bluegrass are not the same.

    Irish trad sessions can suck just as much as OldTime or Bluegrass jams. We just call them "modes" instead of keys. It gives the guitar player a little more excuse for being confused.
