    Re: 'A' String Intonation Question

    Part of it may also be that the smaller string on a 12 string is tuned an octave higher than the larger string. The varied finger pressure on each string may compensate for the difference in tone. ...

    Re: 'A' String Intonation Question

    Have you checked to make sure that the 2 strings are of the same size? One may have been mislabeled. This happened to me once when I bought an old Stradolin that had the G and D courses each using a...

    Small world...just picked up my first F style yesterday at The Music Emporium...an MD515cc!!!! Love to look and feel. I was never a fan of a lot of bling, and I really appreciate the natural beauty...

    Re: Seagull S8 Owners Thread

    I bought one of these a few years ago and really like the feel and sound of it. I have the natural finish version, and you can see that the instrument is actually made of 3 blocks of wood, one that...

    Re: Chance Stradolin Purchase

    I keep going back and forth about replacing the tuners and tail piece, but the current tuners work fine and the scalloped tailpiece with its bit of corrosion is original (I think). Im leaning...

    Re: Chance Stradolin Purchase

    I guess I'm equating "chance" with "low expectations". I wasn't really expecting to find anything. I wasn't really interested in Stradolins. At first site, I wasn't expecting that I would buy it. ...

    I know this might seem extreme to some, but ask your doc if you could have an xray done. I had pain in the same place (left hand) and after an xray, it was determined that my wrist was really...

    Re: E string issue ?

    This happened to me as well, but not quite as bad. The 12th fret at the E string is probably just a little high, so when you press down on the lower frets, the string hits the 12 the fret before...

    Re: Rhythm guitar player seeking mandolin advice

    Also...the great thing about the mandolin is that it is tuned in 5ths. This means that you can change keys and use the same fingering just by shifting up or down to the next string, or up and down...
