  2. Re: Some variations on the Sorensen Sprite Two-Point

    I've loved the look of the Sprite since I first found your website, and love the tone on mine. Wish I could afford a "Flight" of Sorensens!

  5. Re: Learn to play multiple instruments at once?

    I added an order for several - although I usually use a BC, these will go in my pick pouch on my keychain. Harder to loose if you drop them!

    I couldn't find the thread on a cursory search, but I seem to remember that many of the pre-truss rod Gibson mandolins look like they have a 3-piece neck, but it is not a true 3-piece lamination,...

    I'll join in the expressions of gratitude and the kudos bestowed on this site. The Cafe is a daily cruise for me, and I don't know what I'd do without it.

  17. Re: Amazing video of Josh Luttrell finishing an Ellis

    Glassweb - it also illustrates why I would rather admire and play those mandolins than try to make one!

  19. Re: Amazing video of Josh Luttrell finishing an Ellis

    The finish on my Ellis A was a masterpiece - starting with selection of wood and a finish that really brought out the 3-D figure on the back and sides. This video emphasizes the master craftsmanship...
