  1. Re: Gender and age distribution of mando players

    D'oh, that's exactly what I read wrong.
  2. Re: Gender and age distribution of mando players

    I'm confused by this number, or is it unrelated to the pasted graphic breakdown? According to that table, 77.21% are 45 or older. 14.71+19.37+21.23+21.90 = 77.21.

    Re: Ritchie Blackmore's octave

    Yeah, that one looks different than the first video, different soundhole, different bridge. But if you're focusing on the (IMO ugly) art, that's a different question.

    Re: Informal Poll

    I think "headstock envy" likely refers to the name of the maker. Not to be confused with "scroll envy."

    Me, $5K is probably about the most I would ever pay.

  24. Re: Emando players: What do you want in an amp?

    I think you've misunderstood the topic Bob. This is for solid body instruments with magnetic pickups. Electric mandolins, not amplified acoustic mandolins.
