    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    I was told the El Rey has a real Mandolin sound. What is best, an acoustic amp or an electric guitar amp?

    How much would it cost to buy from the Mandolin Store and have it shipped? I know they ship overseas.

    Re: Eastman El Rey?

    I am really interested in one of these. I am saving my pennies and one day this year I will break open my piggy bank and get one. Too cool. :cool:
    I wonder how it will sound with some distortion?...

    Re: Informal Poll

    I wouldn’t pay that much.

    Perhaps if I were a rich professional musician, like Bush or Skaggs, I would. Otherwise, no.

    Taylor guitars says the instrument changes as it ages and is played. That certainly is my experience with my Taylor and with my mandolin.

    I met him several times when I was a kid because he was a regular at a local place. He was nice, as I remember.

    Lakeland used to be a great place to live. I’ve not been there in nearly twenty years.

    I’ve never heard of Stiver, being a noob. Any website?

    I’m sorry to read about your finger. I had an accident last year and I still can’t use my left pinky well or without pain. I hope you heal fast and play well.

    I love trees. There is nothing better than walking amongst them, or lying under them.

    I get irritated at the city because they’ve never seen a tree they didn’t want to cut down.
