    Re: Just a reminder

    Boy is this so true (not noticing worn tires.) I will check my mandolins, and this kind of goes with the "back to basics" whenever my playing starts to not work as well - recheck the obvious!

    Re: Hey

    Round bales are available all over NE Ohio also. We use banjos to keep them from rolling away though.

    Re: Trying to make a modest leap...

    If you happen onto a used Kentucky KM805 (they are not made new anymore AFAIK,) they are an improvement, I got mine for $600. But I know what you are saying about expecting a significant improvement...

    Re: I can’t play now

    DocT, there are "adaptive equipment" items made to help with dressing, there is an item that you put the sock onto, put your foot on the sock, and pull the equipment out. And wanting to get back into...

    Re: Montana mandolin field trip

    I love my Weber Bitterroot A that was made shortly before Weber went to TOH. I hope to meet the Webers someday also. Thanks for the pics and the field trip report!

    Re: Collings MT Prices

    I bought a used MT Honey Amber a year or two ago (pretty much perfect - no dings that I have ever found,) paid roughly $2200 for it, and it's not for sale. I consider it a very good value, and if I...

    Re: Found this old mando in a bookstore

    Looks like a newer case - that alone would be worth $50 (presuming the mando came with the case and you didn't provide it!)

    Re: Who knows? He might get lucky…

    Interestingly, the header on the top of the ad says "$8" and then you get into the ad and find out he actually wants $8000 - quite a difference. It would likely sell in short order for $8.

    Re: New mandolin for an old man

    I'm getting older (64) but refuse to grow up. I just started mandolin 4 years ago, but progress is slow as I am still working full-time. You can do this! Find a nice instrument and give it a go!

    Re: Would someone please buy this

    It is, and if I had the money and wanted an F-style, it looks like the F-style twin to my A-style Collings honey amber. It's tempting but I am not in a financial position to buy it now.

    Re: Shopping! Or...Playing Around

    I live in a mandolin desert - no mandolins available under a 2 1/2 hour road trip, and the places MAY have one or 2 low-end mandolins. Internet shopping all the way for me!

    Re: Any arguments AGAINST MAS?

    I agree with this, but now that I have excellent mandolins I have no excuse NOT to work on getting better on the mandolin!

    Re: Would someone please buy this

    It's lovely, and would make a nice match with my honey-amber A-style Collings, but since I am an A-style person, I can't really help you out. You'll just have to buy it.

    Re: Shopping! Or...Playing Around

    If you are up in the $2000 range you are in the Pava/Weber/Collings/Gibson/Northfield-actually most lower-end of the mid-range market range (especially if you are willing to look at used.)

    The 3 who ADMIT it are women - men tend to "fake" it (as in "Oh honey, I was listening to every word you said" but can't tell you what you said to him.) Just sayin......LOL!!
