    Re: Eastman 515 V - wow

    Hopefully not highjacking the thread.
    I also had a similar experience. I bought a used Pango/Afanti on eBay. SUPER cheap price. Thinking I could turn it around to someone else for the same price if...

    Re: Leon Redbone - RIP

    :(
    So terribly sad.
    I remember seeing him when I was “just a wee lad” while watching SNL with my childhood babysitter. Glad dad and mom stayed out late.

  16. Re: Moving past my F9...looking for recommendations.

    The Collings I have is a wide neck MT2. It has a warmer sound than the Gibsons I have played. It does though have all the loudness of Gibsons. It also has an ease of playing that is really nice, in...
