    Re: A request of builders

    This is a good thread on an important topic. If I commissioned a build and it came through with a bad fret job, it would go right back to the builder. I am aware that fretting requires a skill set...

    Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    Amen to that, Jim. This musician is amazing. I was surprised to see him using a Western-style bow, but have seen it before in this style of music from time to time.

    I'd love to be able to do...

    That's funny! I'm still saving the picture to use in my defense.

    Re: Did someone say PICKS?

    Hey Bratsche,

    Thanks very much for posting this photo! I've got to save this as 'exhibit 1' for the next time my wife says I have too many picks! I am an incurable pick-sampler, always trying...

    Re: Bourgeois Guitars Partners with Eastman

    I hope this works out for Mr. Bourgeois. If the Maine location can continue to turn out high-end instruments and Eastman can expand the penetration into a lower-end market, I see this as a win-win. ...

    Re: D'Addario Strings - Ask Us Anything

    I love D'Addario strings. I hate those sticky paper tags. I am hopeful that they will re-think that labeling method. And seriously; can't we just look at them or feel them and know which is which?...

    Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    Thanks Mike, that's pretty funny. I am used to being confused with others, including a criminal at one point (and the Police took some convincing. . .) because of my common name. In this case, you...
  9. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    Hey Frank,

    No need to feel bad, this has been a great thread with a really productive exchange of ideas. In the past, I would have argued your same position right along with you. Other threads...

    Re: Need a safe wall mount mando holder

    Hi Nancy,

    Might it be possible to rig a simple gate on the String Swing? Perhaps a very heavy elastic band, cut and tied to the right length, could stretch across the opening when you have the...

    Re: What instrument is the hardest? My experience

    Forget the instruments; Tuvan throat singing seems pretty difficult to me.

    Congratulations, Dan. I always enjoy your posts, and seeing your good-looking dog off to the side.

    Best wishes for another thousand,

    Re: Rubner tuners are back

    I love mine, that's for sure. If (OK. . .when) I order another custom build, Rubners will be specified. No doubt about that.
  14. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    While I admittedly am still in that infatuation stage we tend to go through with new instruments, I have to say that I am really digging this Ovation. Had it plugged into an old tube amp last...

    Re: eBay sales tax

    Now that's funny. "Marketplace Facilitator States"? Talk about spin. Sounds like they are doing something to help the marketplace.

    Re: Old Gibson A mandolin copy?

    Gee, Mike, did you really have to point that out? Now I am really feeling old. I still think of the 70's as just yesterday!

    We may be getting older, but it sure beats the alternative (or so I...

    Hello and thanks for all the replies. This has been an interesting read and informative, too. This story ends well. The two packages arrived together, yesterday. Both were in perfect condition. ...

    Re: No Wires ! Joe Walsh w/ Molly Tuttle

    It is an incredibly beautiful performance by two of my truly favorite musicians. I don't think you can really extrapolate from that, though, that all performances should be done just that way. We...

    Really cool instrument, and I think it is great that you are willing to share what you have learned. Very generous.

    For today's tracking update, still no arrival of either package at any depot. I am heartened to hear all the positive stories about the USPS success rates, but in this instance, they are zero for...

    I just came back from the local post office. They tracked the packages and said it looks odd to them, too. It would be one thing if we were in the dead of winter and the middle of the country was...

    What's up with USPS?

    Is anyone else having issues with the USPS? I have two packages en route that are overdue and the tracking system has given up predicting a date. It basically says they will get there when they get...
  23. Re: Looking for opinions of Big Muddy mandolins

    Good luck, Leslie. Like Jamie, I am a big fan of flat-tops and will never willingly be without one (or two. . .). I think you are making a great choice and I wish you all the best with it.
  24. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    Yup, I did it. Have an Ovation MM68 (US made) heading my way. Bought it from a Cafe ad (of course). Funny thing is, it was this thread that convinced me to finally get one. I'll report back on...
