    Re: Collings MF5 - Any years to avoid?

    I ran across one of these and alluded to it in an earlier post: 2009 at the late great FQMS in Louisville, KY. It was a very plain MT and the most amazing mandolin I’ve ever heard or played. We had...

  3. Re: Possible Transition from Light to Medium Strings

    Murphy’s is a good shop ran by good people. I’m down the road in Euless, not many exits from there.

    If you ever want to try someone else, I highly recommend Kerry in Hurst.

    I see you’re in Irving. I’m curious what luthier you use?

    Re: Collings MF5 - Any years to avoid?

    I’ve been following Collings’ work for a long time and they don’t do anything halfway. The instruments themselves show this, but a tour of their shop (around 2010 in my case) would quickly remove any...

    Looking to have some pearl inlay work done.

    I'd like to have a name inlayed into the truss rod cover of my Collings MT. Can you recommend someone who does this type of work?

    Re: more accurate clip on tuner than Snark?

    Back in the day I had an original Intellitouch and it worked better than anything I’ve had since. Even the smaller (square) versions they made were great. Not sure what happened to the company.
