    Re: NMD: gretsch new yorker.

    +1 for the NYer. I have a 9320, got her cheap and I love her to death. More than enough to keep me busy for a long time, while I save those pennies. Enjoy!

    Re: Gretsch parts?

    Re: The Dark Side (Banjo)

    As a matter of fact, I have a mandolin banjo as well! I don't know why but in my mind it's more mando than banjo (could be the short neck). I inherited it from my grandmother, and it's what started...

    Re: The Dark Side (Banjo)

    Interesting, I've found myself wanting to get my hands on a banjo as well. I'm trying to resist, as I've only been playing mando for a few months and I'm afraid the novelty of a new instrument might...
