    Re: Pono MND-20 Tenor size Octave Mandolin!

    Since I'm used to playing a 000 size guitar with it balanced on my leg, the smaller body size of the MD-20 just wasn't ergonomically a good fit for me. It sounded and played great though, and if...

    Re: Nut question

    Sounds like you're on the right track.
    I'd shim under the nut and test it out. If that fixes the issue, you can just leave the shim and be done. Or you can remove the shim, fill the nut slots and...

    Re: Adjustment for Eastman Tuning Pegs

    Re: Nut Width for OM

    Needs more room for thicker strings, and you need more room between strings to keep them from interfering with each other.
