    Re: Cherry Mandolin color suggestions

    I might put a lite red finish on the spruce to match the cherry. Although it looks good the way it is now in the white, so maybe just leave it blonde.

    Re: Fingernails getting in the way

    I keep my fingernails cut as short as I can without causing pain. Even with this my nails are too long also, so I tilt my fingers back a little so my nails dont hit the fretboard.

    Re: Finger Infection

    I agree with the Epson salt, then some Neosporin (triple antibiotic). Or, if you listen to the Greeks, Windex fixes everything.

    Re: Return of MAS? HELP!

    Sorry about the MAS, unfortunately there is no cure as far as I know. Only temporary fixes, luckily I just got a new mando yesterday so my MAS is under control... for now.

    Wow Keith, that cool! I never realized how big an octave mando was until now. So I'm doubly impressed.

    Re: changing strings

    On an instrument that has a fixed bridge or one that has been set up, yes. If the open note and the 12th fret note are out of tune, that means the bridge position need to be adjusted.

    Re: pernambuco as a finish coloring?

    Use that pernambuco wisely, its an endangered species and you probably wont be able to find more for a while.

    Re: Looking for an upgrade

    Re: Looking for an upgrade

    http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/msg/2934280062.html I just found this on my local Craigslist page. Is this a good mando? If it is, is $700 a good price for an old Aria Pro II mandolin?

    Both the classic and the classic sunburst finishes on the Eastmans look very nice, I'm just not a big fan of the shape of the neck and the radiused fret board on them. I also like the finish of the...
