    Re: $199.00 solid F style mandolin

    Pasha, you're not the only one who doesn't change their string regularly. I heard a story about George Harrison and his famous Gretsch. After a number of years of playing he was having difficulty...

    Re: Northfield new pricing

    Don't be put off by the place of manufacture. Have you ever seen the quality in an old Ming dynasty vase? Etc etc
