    Congratulations John! Beautiful mandolin, you're going to have a lot of fun with that.
    All works of art, very nice.
  6. Re: Is it wrong to correct a poster's spelling or grammar?

    I wouldn't correct people but I see where you are coming from. I think some people could get offended, I have seen it done though.

    Re: Sentimental about your first mandolin?

    My wife bought me my first mandolin so it's important to me. It's a Fender but I had it set up and still play it once in awhile. It's something I'll always have and play because she bought it for me...
  15. Re: New strings. How fast do you tune up to pitch?

  18. Re: Do you take your mandolin out of the house?

    Mine have never left the house but are not gently used. I lost touch with the musical friends I had and don't have a lot of chances to go to jams. I have been content to play and enjoy my mandolin by...
