    Re: Help with Martin Style 20 at GC Brooklyn

    Dang! Did you order it? I just tried to send it to my local GC and it’s unavailable now. Seems like a good buying situation to me. A very easy buy and try without shipping hassles. Good luck if you...

    Re: Help with upgrade, please

    Yup. Unfortunately the MD404 is similar to the old Ford Model T. You can get it in any color you want, as long as itís black!

    Re: Help with upgrade, please

    I hope I don’t get hit with the ham sandwich, but I just want to throw out the option of an Eastman 404. It has the same features of the 504, but it has mahogany back and sides and it’s priced about...

    Re: Should Bryan Kimsey scallop my guitar?

    Back to the OP, I would say no. No disrespect to Mr. Kimsey, but I prefer the tone of the natural top. I wouldnít do any further modifications. I honestly like the difference in tone between both...

    Re: Fingering Technique

    For me it all depends on where I’m starting. If I’m starting on the second fret it would be I M M R. Starting on first fret it would be I I M M. Third fret M M R R. I would probably not do I M R R if...

    Re: Dylan on bluegrass in the New York Times

    Itís not bluegrass, but I would say itís deeply rooted. Legend has it that Mike helped Bob get into songwriting by doing traditional songs better than Bob could do himself. So Bob thought he might be...

    I aquired this Martin from the classifieds last week and I’m quite smitten. Rare, but not too valuable. It plays nice with a light touch, but the frets are quite worn so there’s some...

    186616Thanks for the name drop and review! Hereís a pic of my 404 in a big clunky gator case that I use for another mando. It might work for the 314, no guarantees or financial interest on my...

    Re: Dylan on bluegrass in the New York Times

    I donít think Bobís knocking anybody. Heís simply answering the question asked. ďHave you ever thought of recording a bluegrass album?Ē I think his answer is out of respect to bluegrass, the Beatles...
  13. Re: Eastman MD314 F-Style Oval Hole Mandolin Discontinued?

    Congrats Chompa! Just curious, but is there a significant difference in volume between the 305 and 314? I would expect a difference in tone, but is one louder than the other?

    Re: Blue chip picks

    I donít own a BC, but if I put it into perspective I think itís worth it. I could easily spend the price of a BC on a pizza and a 6-pack and they would both be gone pretty quickly. It might be worth...

    Thanks! I stumbled across this one back in the fall when I was thinking about getting a Waterloo from TME. Didnít pull the trigger on the Waterloo, but now this Martin is back in my radar!

    Re: "Brain Flatulence" when playing

    Very fine example of a clunker! I wish the late great painting instructor Bob Ross was a mandolin player/teacher. We could all just have happy mistakes!

  25. Re: Eastman MD314 F-Style Oval Hole Mandolin Discontinued?

    I canít help with an evaluation of these two models and it seems like the 314 is a bit of a rare bird so maybe not many others have been able to make this comparison either. I havenít played either...
