    Re: No Wires ! Joe Walsh w/ Molly Tuttle

    It is an incredibly beautiful performance by two of my truly favorite musicians. I don't think you can really extrapolate from that, though, that all performances should be done just that way. We...

    Re: Latest build electric mandolin

    Really cool instrument, and I think it is great that you are willing to share what you have learned. Very generous.

    Re: What's up with USPS?

    For today's tracking update, still no arrival of either package at any depot. I am heartened to hear all the positive stories about the USPS success rates, but in this instance, they are zero for...

    Re: What's up with USPS?

    I just came back from the local post office. They tracked the packages and said it looks odd to them, too. It would be one thing if we were in the dead of winter and the middle of the country was...

    What's up with USPS?

    Is anyone else having issues with the USPS? I have two packages en route that are overdue and the tracking system has given up predicting a date. It basically says they will get there when they get...
  6. Re: Looking for opinions of Big Muddy mandolins

    Good luck, Leslie. Like Jamie, I am a big fan of flat-tops and will never willingly be without one (or two. . .). I think you are making a great choice and I wish you all the best with it.
  7. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    Yup, I did it. Have an Ovation MM68 (US made) heading my way. Bought it from a Cafe ad (of course). Funny thing is, it was this thread that convinced me to finally get one. I'll report back on...

  9. Re: Musical Instruments To Be Exempt From Restrictions

    Maybe not for tone wood, but how about for fretboards? It is good and hard, based on its use in flooring. And it seems pretty stable.

    Re: Prettiest Peghead Inlays Ever

    This, to me, is absolutely beautiful; very much to my taste. I have to admit, the torch and wire-type aesthetic never did appeal much to me. It's not that I dislike it, more that it just doesn't...
  11. Re: Hypothetical high dollar mando purchase question...

    I agree with Mike. As I said in another thread moments ago, the instrument that gets the most play-time from my small collection is actually my least expensive instrument. That doesn't mean I don't...

    Re: Looking for a GOOD flat top mandolin

    I have had my Crystal Forest for seven years now. I am a strong proponent of flat-tops and love this one. It probably gets more play than any of my other instruments, despite being the least...

    You know, I think sometimes people are just trying to make conversation and really aren't thinking that much about the connection between instruments that may or may not exist. I've been asked all...

    Re: New case option

    The outside pocket looks huge. The pocket on my Gator will hold my IPad. Looks like this one is even bigger. This seems like a great option at a very reasonable price. Thanks, Jim, for posting...

    Re: Some days are like that . . .

    Good for you, Fred. I am glad your mandolin gave you the escape you needed. I don't know what we would do without these little wonders to see us through. Know why the world is so messed up? Too...
  16. Re: A likely contentious opinion on electric mandolins

    Hey Joe,

    I was just playing my short-scale Weber OM through my Schertler Guilia, using Schertler's stick-on pickup. This is not really the set-up I was thinking about in my earlier comments. ...

    Hey Diptanshu,

    Playback seems to be disabled.

    Good luck with your new EP.

  20. Re: looking to move, but I have no clue where ?.

    Jamie is making a good point. The greater Philadelphia/Wilmington area has a lot going for it.

    I moved from New England to be near Philly for four years (Vet school for my wife). That was forty...

    Re: Sellerís Remorse - 2008 custom Weber Fern

    I, too, am missing a long gone mandolin and hairline. The mandolin was an 'old wood' Weber Vintage A.

    I finally figured out how to offset the complete lack of hair on top of my head; I am...

    A factual answer to this question is attainable, as Marty points out above. But it requires a lot of work, and I don't see a whole lot of use for the answer. I always try to know what I will do...

    Hi Diptanshu,

    This is a funny instance of different word use in different contexts. In the cat world, the color of the cat you are shown with at the start of the video is called 'tortoise shell'....

    That does shed a bit more light on it, but your Luthier's thoughts are based on photos, not an in-hand exam. Would the seller allow an in-hand exam by your Luthier as a condition of sale? Might be...
