    Re: I don't like F styles. Anyone else?

    If Bill Monroe would have seen a A5 in a barbershop window in 1947
    This would be a very different conversation!

    Re: Chinese made mandolins (Northfield?)

    I said in my post, I might be narrow minded.
    Eastman is a good mando for the money
    But from everything I've heard the Northfield
    Is in A totally differently class!

    I have a mando and I want it painted black
    No sunburst anymore, I want it to turn black
    Cheers,
    Rick

    String change frequency

    I realize there a wide range
    Some change strings every 3 weeks,
    Others every 6 months.
    I know how often most guitar players (often) and banjo players (less often)
    But mandolin players???

    Re: Favorite A style mandolin?

    If Bill Monroe had never found a mandolin for sale in a Tampa barber shop in 1942, y'all would be playing A5's
