    Re: The winner of the Collings MT2 Giveaway

    That is not the point, and I find myself in agreement. Personally, I did not think I would win, but I would hope the winning results were good. But the humor was crude and not well thought out, nor...

    Re: Fretless Mandolin

    I do not believe so. Maybe a bit bigger than a mandola.
  3. Re: If you DIDN'T win the MT, what was your actual entry?

    Mine was "Jazzby"
    I thought that mandolin had a sleek look, sort of like a jazz instrument would have. Jazzby was also a picture I drew in English class a year ago with a mechanized man smoking a...

    Re: Fretless Mandolin

    I made a thread about it a while ago, but got little information. I know there are some out there, but no sound clips or videos. I am sure defretting a mandolin is no harder than doing so to a bass...

    Re: In Case of Theft.

    Well, all three of my instruments would be fairly easy to track down if pawned. I have the serial number of my Gibson acoustic, and inside the tone hole, there is no label or anything, so it would be...

    No, it sounds like deedle-deedle-plinky-plinky, if I'm not mistaking.
  9. Where can I find a nice, but cheap, tenor guitar?

    While saving up for a mandolin, I want something new to mess around with to pass the time, and I have found myself always admiring the cheap Kay archtop tenors I see every so often. Of course, now...

    Re: Whats up with dead strings at shops?

    That Guitar Center in Louisville is one of the nicer ones I have been to, nice and spacious.
    Anyways, GC is notoriously bad with mandolins, from what I can tell. I have played a few mandolins...

    I was talking about what I knew getting into mandolin. I have always either seen it in bluegrass or folk, more so bluegrass, once entering. And down here in Charleston, where the music scene is...

    Re: fretless mando hybrid

    The first one was awesome, especially because I asked a while back about a possible fretless mandolin.
    But that second one, please, is it for sale?

    Not easy at all. But Gibson clearly did it, how come no one attempts to now? A new innovation in the field of mandolins, violins, etc.

    Re: the mandolin in bluegrass?

    The mandolin, to me, seemed much more primarily a bluegrass instrument, and never thought about it being used in many other genres of music outside of folk and various country. The mandolin in...

    You took it from me! I had my eyes on that one, and the second I saw it pulled off the site, I was heartbroken. Good luck with it, it looks like a nice instrument.

    The best places online to buy a mandolin are right under the website banner.
    As for a good electric-acoustic mandolin at around that price:
