  1. Re: What to do about a big increase in my mandolinís value?

    Great philosophical question. To wit:

    My 1988 Traugott acoustic guitar I bought from Dexter Johnson at Carmel Music is a great example. It was an early Traugott, and the only neck inlay he ever...

    This. Your sound should not be an after thought. When you complain about bad sound and then refuse to pay for some one good, you are just adding to the lack of respect for folks who are good at...

    Re: Webers now go to 14

    Next time you are in town, come to the winery for a visit. It's good fun and the acoustics are great.

    And yes, I have been trying to coach Ben along. For 30 years now.

    Aw man, that was mighty sharp of you to catch that! I better tone things down a bit before I cause too much treble.

    Re: Webers now go to 14

    At this point, I have to bring up the Rigel naming. Their Highest tier instrument, the G-5, was so named as it was a whole step above the F-5. Suits me,

    Re: Phoenix Jazz Mandolin string choices

    The Jazz is definitely made for Starks.

    When I purchased mine from a nice gent in Az, he had Mittels on it and complained he was not bonding with the instrument. I could see why. It really...

    Re: guitar discussions

    Yeah, those guys are missing two strings! It's gotta make it tough to play anything worth while. Also, they don't spend NEARLY as much time tuning as we do.

    Re: Best years for a luthier?

    By odd coincidence, my 2 mandos are both 2005 vintage.

    In the case of the Rigel G5, the 2005 was a year before they had to close doors, but at the height of the boom. It is one of few, maybe 18 or...

    Re: Bach by Thile- Choice of The Gibson Loar

    Well, at least we can all agree on that fairly rapid down turn in tone that happened when he stopped playing his Rigel CT110.
