    Re: New Tenor guitar

    I like the bridge at the widest part of the bout, and a trapeze tailpiece. You can obviously vary the neck placement and cutaway to get playability and the tone you desire. Don’t know if that’s...

    Re: In praise of mandolin builder Matt Ruhland

    My buddy picked up #42 yesterday. Won’t leave the house for a while, but I know the way there. She’s waited a while since she missed the last batch, so I’m very happy for her. Tammy and the...

    +1. Got a lovely 000-18 from him a while back. Such a pleasure to deal with, not that I needed another guitar😊

    Re: Tonegards

    Re: String journey on a Collings MT

    I've played the Labella 770M and 880L on my F5L, trying to copy David McLaughlin. My hands tended to kill the sound a little too quickly for me but I sure love his playing with those strings.
