    Re: Tied notes in TablEdit - How?

  12. Re: Armenian (soviet) 1970's electric mandolin monstrosity

    What a beautiful mandolin.
    Is it left handed?
    The seller just needs to add that it’s being sold by Django Reinhardt’s grandson -that would add a couple of thousand to the price.

    Re: Shout out for Ronny Harrison straps

    Here’s a photo from a site, nice, these are Ronny’s straps, I believe.
    The question I’d ask, though, is what’s with the wear on the guitar under the strings -someone practices without strings? ...

    Re: Leather straps: flat or braided?

    I’d probably save the leather that you have, use it for something else.
