    Re: buying first mando without playing?

    Re: Heiden vs Northfield GOM

    On GOBM - Mowry and Girouard are excellent! Have not tried the Heiden. I did try a Northfield and I do not think it was as good as the Mowry or Girouard. But it could have been the particular one.

    Re: Lets Talk Eastman Line.

    I am confused by all this talk about nut width. Many of the Eastman mandos have a 1 3/16 inch wide nut. What the heck is the issue here?
