    Re: Practice cutting dovetails by hand

    I was on the Isle of Barra, one of the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. I was told to take the first turn after I pass the trees. I asked which trees? It turns out they are the only trees on the island. :)

  10. Re: Help me understand mortise and tenon neck joints

    Charles E. and pops1 - I always thought is as HoGo states. I'm not a luthier but I like to read and I've only seen it referred to as a mortise. That said I defer to more knowledgeable people :)
  11. Re: Help me understand mortise and tenon neck joints

    Actually they use mortise and tenon not dovetail.
  12. Re: Replacement for Eastman Mandola Tailpiece

    Does your mandola have the cast tailpiece? If so I don't think it does have the "standard" screw pattern. If it has the standard stamped tailpiece with the slide on cover then it does use the...

  20. Re: First Mandolin - is this model a decent choice?

    FYI - There is no difference sound wise between an Eastman F and A as long as the A has F holes. The 605 (The A equivalent to the 615) would be the way to go if that's the level you want. You'll save...

    Re: anyone built this mandolin kit ?

    Re: Allen tailpiece holes vs. James?

    Hey David,

    Lawrence now uses James tailpieces but he used to use the Allen MR-2. Wayne's A and his F5 are both Allen. If you don't mind the Allen you can always go with a silver Allen. Other wise...
