    Re: Mandolin vs. Mandola?

    I tried a Kimble mandola and an older Gibson mandola at TME back in August. I went in expecting to leave with one of them—low end tone but shorter stretches—but, compared to cello and OM, there just...

    Re: ISO: Case that Fits a 1930's Regal Resonator

    Don’t know for sure, but what about a National RM-1 case? PM me the measurements (because I tend to be poor at following threads once they fall off the frequently happening page), and I’d be happy to...

    Re: The Kentucky

    My first mandolin was a KM 675-S built the first year Saga moved production to China. They were still working out some kinks, and it had some issues, though all were admittedly not Saga’s fault (it...

    Lol, Mike, I can remember being thrilled when I got a CD player that would play through the tape deck in my old Tacoma back in the late 90s. Plugged into the lighter for power, and could almost make...

    It may be worthwhile to have it checked out the next time you’re in your fav music store (can’t remember offhand if you’re near Dusty Strings or Gryphon?). I like jumbo frets, but felt like I had to...
