    Re: Drop In Tuners For 1933 Gibson A

    My Gibson Teens oval allowed a perfect drop-in of the "Golden Age" tuners. Everything lined up down to the last screw and the bushings. I am not sure if they would do the same with the 1933...

    Re: Thomastik Medium Flatwound Strings

    Re: Mandolins with Deeper Necks

    I like a nice V-shaped neck. I also enjoy a rounded full neck, which fits in a bigger hand. Great choice on the MT!
