    Rick Stone mandolins

    A custom-made Rick Stone A style mandolin showed up at a local pawn shop in town. I see that he was a luthier in Western North Carolina who made a variety of instruments. I can't find much specific...

    Re: Standing position

    Re: choosing a mandolin for playability

    I have an inexpensive Washburn (M1S-DLTR-A) and I don't really have any problems with the playability. I'm not saying it has the best tone or anything, but the playability is at least pretty good...

    Re: Ricky Skaggs arm injury ?

    We saw him at Festy on Oct. 8th. He was not in a sling but was not picking. He said it would be 4-6 weeks until he would be picking again.

    Thanks for the recording. It gives me the kick in the butt I need to tackle it.

    Hello,

    I bought this instrument, which appears to be a baglama or saz. I bought it because it was for sale cheap at a second-hand store and I really liked the way it looks. I can barely play a...
