    Re: Kent 836

    I have a Kent mandola but not that shape -more of a lop sided SG( the model 744) in sunburst, anyway it has great tone and sustain and is a joy to play, I think for solid body electric they are...

  8. Re: David Grisman - The Story of Crusher | Fretboard Journal

    He talked about Crusher (recorded most of Dawg 90 with it, and to Journey Bear's point, not really a traditional BG record) on a pre-pay video thing he did during the lock downs, he also played the...

    Re: Wide neck Mandolins ?

    I've always prefered octaves and mandolas to mandolin and I'm pretty sure its because the 1 1/8th nut width is a challenge for my clumsy fingers, I did pick up a 1920 Gibson F4 which has a fretboard...

    Re: Cover of Gillian Welch's "Acony Bell"

    great tune, sounds nice
    We used to play this one all the time at the farm jams.
  14. Re: How does it work when people are playing together?

    Re: What kind of financial sh to make use?
