    Re: John Prines mandolin player.

    Not sure what there is to dislike about John's mandolin player. Seems like a great accompanist in the video clip. More importantly, best I've heard John sing in years. Prime is a national treasure.

    Re: Ibanez M522s F style

    I bought an Ibanez F style with a solid top and it played awful. Gave it away. Thuddy, awful sunburst finish, nut cut incorrectly, I could go on. Run away from Ibanez!
