    Well, I decided to follow up and share the end of my thread. I was a little reluctant to do so, just for the personal nature of it and for the generous liberties I took to complete my mission. I'll...

    Re: This Gibson legit?

    Jacob, that is very interesting fact and relevant I would imagine. So I'm testing this by sitting here and quickly wiggling my index & middle (separate tendons) and then wiggling the middle and ring...

    Re: Tremolo

    Hey Jon - I'm no expert, but in my years of development this is without a doubt true. And I would add to that, that the wrist also should be loosened up. Another little self discovery for me . . ....

    Re: 1st fret playability on your mando?

    Using Rob Meldrum's set-up manual - he calls for an ideal E and A string height of .011 at the first fret. Of course, the rest of the setup is just as vital, but you shouldn't need to press any...

    Re: Strings Catching on Higher Fret

    My two cents. Explore and get to know your instrument. The mandolin responds in remarkable ways sometimes to the smallest, yet appropriate tweaks. A great place to start is emailing for a copy of...

    Philphool, you're right it would most likely have been quite entertaining, but I would have been the one not entertained. So, I've decided to remove the TP with the next string change. I know for...

    Re: James tailpiece question

    One last question. I think I'd much rather take the top off rather than the whole TP. So, I'm going to get a proper tool w/ handle, I've put on a spot of lube. My question --- can anyone offer some...

    Re: James tailpiece question

    Thanks, I understand. I'm thinking that having the bronze exposed, then darkening, won't be a bad thing at all. It's going to be a simple thin script similar to the traditional "The Gibson". I think...

    Is there an advantage to measuring at the 1st fret with the strings depressed at the 3rd fret - as opposed to just measuring at the 1st fret without depressing the string? In Rob Meldrum's popular...
