    Re: David Benedict quit Mile Twelve

    I have been taking lessons about once a month with David. He’s a great teacher, and I love his Patreon model. He and Tabitha are enjoying their new house and I expect to see and hear great things...

    If you are going to “play” in that market you need to do your homework.

    Re: Loars at Carterís

    When you talk banjos things get murky over switched necks, tone rings, etc. And there are like five people (most of them dealers) who are considered “players” in that game. You really have to know...

    As for violins, different...

    I am not sure what you are saying; are you saying that these are merely outliers? I do know that last summer several really nice ones changed hands for well under $100k, very quietly. I am not sure...

    Re: Loars at Carterís

    Lots of instruments are not making it as far as the store floor or websites. Many shops have in store inventory that they have no intention of listing.

    Re: Loars at Carterís

    The market for vintage guitars has always been stronger. Lots of non-players out there buying as well as ďthree-chordersĒ with $$$$cash.

  9. Re: Waiting for a Northfield Big Mon (Wide Nut/Red Spruce)

    Your paperwork would indicate that the top was from this stash. It is really kind of interesting, because it’s got a lot of volume. I’m wondering if it’s stiffer, because it doesn’t have the same...

    Re: RIP Arthur Stern

    Looks like it was sudden. His Facebook page had a posting on the 21st of September. I am shocked. Haven't seen him here in a bit, but it's very sad to hear that he is gone.

    Re: Punch brothers

    At a certain point the transition from phenom to independent-thinking artist has to take place. I’m actually enjoying Bels Fleck’s approach more. Chris lost me about five years ago.
