  1. Re: Martin Krajicek and "unusually octave" mandolin.

  5. Re: 4-string emando, what’s the best out there?

    I have one of the new Fender Mandocasters with the pickup replaced with an Almuse pickup and it's great.

    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    I agree, Hybridize your obsessions! That's what I did. :)
