    Re: Naked Bridge Post Is Shredding My Palm

    A little late to the game but- I had a sharp edge on the tailpiece of my 1929 National mandolin that was chaffing my arm. I used a piece of moleskin- like you would put on a foot blister. It had...
  2. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Well, I thought I'd add my two cents worth. I watched every second of these shows and really thought is was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Ken Burns does such a good job of research and...

    Re: PBS documentary on the history of Bluegrass

    I also thought the show was wonderful. I'm not really a bluegrass fan- kind of like it for a bit, but not a steady diet. But I learned so much history from the program, as well as much behind the...

    Very cool Benski. I thought the part of the movie when Santana starts playing Soul Sacrifice after the rainstorm was one of the highlights. I, of course, had to get every Santana album ever made-...

    Re: Woodstock

    Santana was unknown outside the Bay area at that time. Woodstock helped put them on the map and propelled them to the greatness that followed. Don't know if anyone saw the PBS special on Woodstock...

    Woodstock

    So, today Aug. 15 is the 50th. anniversary of the first day of Woodstock in 1969. I believe I made a similar post 10 years ago for the 40th. anniversary, so we'll see if 10 years later we get any...

    Re: The D.Gilchrist in the classifieds

    Wow, nice looking mandolin. I'm not quite sure what warrants that extremely high price. There are some wonderful well made electrics out there at a fraction of that $$.

    Re: Bob Venn Tiny Moore 5 String Electric Mandolin

    Yeah, that's way more than I'd be willing shell out for that mandolin. I actually like the Roberts design better ( and own one).

    Re: 4-string emando, what’s the best out there?

    I've played a lot of electrics, and most of them were great. For the money, I highly recommend J.L. Smith. A mid priced instrument with excellent workmanship and sound.

    Ditto on Ted's comment. John makes great instruments and is easy to work with.

    Re: 1953 EM-200 original red or refin?

    Looks refinished to me. I don't believe they made an EM 200 that color. Or any other mandolin for that matter. I'm not sure how they can justify asking $12,000 for it.
  13. Re: 1952 Bigsby inspired 5 string Electric Mandolins

    Eddy- those are awesome looking. If I only needed another mandolin. I should really stay off this site. It's cost me way too much money over the years. Keep up the good work.

    Re: mixer for three instruments to one amp

    I play fiddle and 2 or 3 mandolins when I gig. I use a Baggs Venue. It allows you to use one cord for all instruments in that when you hit the tuner foot switch, it cuts the signal off so you can...

    Re: Mann mandolins?

    I've had both the SEM and the EM. They were wonderful instruments, but like a dummy, I moved them on to new owners. Mine were both 5 strings. Tone was very clean if wanted, but I'm usually on a...

    So, I was gifted a beautiful Martin mandolin from my niece for Christmas. How cool is that? She's had it for years and hasn't played it for a long time. She thought it was from the 40's, but wasn't...

    Re: New to me JL Smith 5 string

    I did the review 10 years ago, if indeed that is the same instrument, so it's at least 10 years old. I believe it was new when I got it. You could probably check J L Smiths website for more...

    Re: New to me JL Smith 5 string

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe I used to own that mandolin. I think that's the one I did a review of for Emando.com years ago. It was a sweet mandolin. I've had 4 of John's mandolins, and they were...
