    Re: Thank you Scott and Dan!

    Nice save! On a related note, David Ayres, a Zamboni driver, got tapped to be an emergency sub in for the Carolina Hurricanes in Toronto. He is 42 and helped the Hurricanes win (oldest goalie to win...

    Re: Can This Be Saved?

    Re: Chris Thile's Loars

    I'll say this about Loar sounds. When I had a brief minute to strum one (Steve Martins) I sounded just like me. I fully get that these well made instruments have huge potential but, unless you have...

    Re: Hello from Delaware

    Welcome. I wouldn't call that a common issue with Ibenez mandolins (at least it hasn't made the boards here often). Good luck with the lessons and have fun!
