    Re: Any arguments AGAINST MAS?

    I think that you have identified the only satisfactory resolution. Yes, there are arguments against MAS for oneself. No, there are no arguments against MAS for someone else.

    Re: Would someone please buy this

    Bring only enough money for the strings. Leave all credit cards home. Keep your hands in your pockets and look straight ahead not at that wall. Oh, yeah, don't sell your car.

  5. Re: IMO - Why red spruce is the loudest top wood

    I think one thing is missing in this discussion and that is what do you mean by "loud". Is it the amount of energy in the sound waves radiated by the mandolin (the physics view) or is it how we can...

    Re: IMO - Why red spruce is the loudest top wood

    On average, red spruce is said to have the highest stiffness to density ratio of spruce species. That does not mean the every piece of red spruce is stiffer than every piece of Euro, Engelmann,...

    Re: IMO - Why red spruce is the loudest top wood

    Writing as a physicist, achieving a loud mandolin is certainly a matter of physics, but I cannot agree that it is a matter of "simple" physics. In fact, I only wish it were that simple. Alas, it is...

    Re: IV "In the White" F5 model

    It's all solid wood so it's ahead of the Rogue, closer I would imagine to a solid Rover F style mandolin.

  11. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    For those that feel this signals the end time for Gibson I can tell you this is by far not the worst PR Gibson ever brought upon themselves. The brand will survive.

    Re: Mandolins on Gibson web site?

    You actually might be able to find that 2016 information on the site. Nothing new. People have to understand what a small part of Gibson's business the mandolins are. It's an after thought.
  13. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I was part of some of the efforts to protect their product, trademarks, etc by Gibson while I was there. There is a lot more to this than just emotions or wanting to kick the big dog. I was used as...

    Long story short - I have always wanted to get the mandolin tone that Bill Bolick had with the Blue Sky Boys. Several months ago I was digging through some old cassette tapes and found one that...

    I have a feeling that an "atomic force microscope" would cost considerably more than a Blue Chip pick. Makes a BC seem like a real bargain. :)
