    Re: Aubrey Haynie's Gilchrist

    Do you have any videos or audio of it? I'd love to hear it. That's a fairly unique build, particularly post #500 or so where most are red spruce and hard maple. I've got 670 and 522 and they're...

    Re: Trying to make a modest leap...

    My personal preference puts the Kentucky 900 and 1000 line well ahead of any of the Eastman and The Loar mandolins I've played. I recently had (briefly) a superb KM900 that was a much better...

    Re: Old Ellis F5 vs New Ellis F5

    #464 was the subject of a recent Facebook build thread. I believe this is either the most recent at TME or the NAMM mandolin.

    Re: How Much Better Does It Get

    Oh yea. I played that one and a matching mandola at Fiddler's Green when they were hanging about. Really impressive instruments.

    Re: Signal Channel

    If there's a sound guy and they're running the PA as an acoustic band setup:
    Mandolin --> SM57Beta --> House PA

    Small house PA with no monitors
    Mandolin --> DPA4099 --> AER Compact60 or Acoustic...

    If Crusher is on the list of availables, I'll stand in that line. Best instrument (of any fiddle, guitar, mandolin, etc) I've ever played.

    If you truly love F style bodies, then it's possible you will never be completely happy with an A. That being said, you can readily find a used Ellis A in your budget. They are phenomenal...

    It still is :)) It is just a hair over 1", but the neck shape is very abrupt from the fingerboard down to the V.
