    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    Collings has not reopened yet, and probably won’t be up to 100% capacity for a long while. These are available through any Waterloo dealer. A dealer can order one for you, but there’s going to be a...

    The blonde one is maple. The others are mahogany. I believe they’ve only made one maple one so far.

    Re: Are People Buying Less Mandolins Now?

    The problem with the Deering Goodtimes is they lack a truss rod. For a while there were a lot of complaints about bowed necks.

    I just saw a Bart Reiter Special on BanjoHangout.com. It's a 2016...

    Re: Northfield is simply nailing it lately

    Steve,

    I think the delay is probably compounded due to the virus and the shut downs all over the world. They could very well be just waiting at the factory where they make these for hardware or...

    Re: Are People Buying Less Mandolins Now?

    I feel that way after I've spent a few hours restringing. But I have kept my fiddle buying down to a minimum. The mandolins just seem to jump out and stick to me, kind of like they are on velcro.

    Retirement income is affected. The market is a little crazy right now, and lots of retirement income, including pensions are tied to the market.
