    Nice job and your Eastman sounds great.
  3. Re: Last Train Home on my Tyler White mandolin

    The White sounds really good. To bad you are having issues with carpal tunnel. We have heard enough from you to know that you are a much better player so it must be really bothering you. To ban you...

    Re: Which mandolin to buy

    I agree with the others, get the Morris in Charles post and don't look back. That is a good price/value. You should get your money back down the road should you decide to sell. Eastman and Kentucky...

    Re: New Member Old Questions

    I understand the draw to and F5 but I was cured when I received a special A5 mandolin a few years ago. For me it is all about tone and playability. Tim O'Brien seems to have managed fine with an A5...

    Re: Looking For A Decent A Style w/Oval

    Not trying to sway either way but Gibson mandolins did not have adjustable truss rods until 1920 or 1921. That is a lot of mandolins and they are 100 plus years old. I guess that is one of the ways...

    Re: Looking For A Decent A Style w/Oval

    I would guess 1 1/8" and a flat fretboard. You could msg the seller and find out for sure.

    Hopefully you were able to have yours removed before it ruptured. I was out on a Saturday bike ride with a group and started feeling bad. We usually went to a bakery or deli after the ride. I got off...

    Re: Mandolins outside

    A mandolin will carry a long ways outdoors, indoors as well. It is surprising how far you can hear a mandolin.
