    Re: Used Gibsons

    My reason for selling off my Goldrush, is as much as I love it, my Duff does more of what I want an instrument to do for ME.
    Although if I only owned the Goldrush, it would be a lifetime mandolin...

    Re: Gary Vessel F5 #94

    I wish....that was taken while the wife and I were on vacation in Mendocino County.

    Re: Mando and guitar string question

    Round core strings are generally less tension for a given gauge.

    Newtone strings masterclass mediums have as much, or close to, the same tension as Daddario lights.
    Curt Mangan also makes round...

    Re: Help Identifying Galiano Guitar

    I have never heard of a Galiano Regent, but that's not to say they aren't out there.
    Pics would help immensely.

    Re: 1984 vs New Duff F5 Style Mandolin

    It used to be Mason William's guitar.

    Mark and Tyler are incredible pickers.
    I've met and picked with Tyler. Super nice fella and incredibly talented on just about any string instrument.

    Re: Monel strings

    The Mangan monels have 99% of the volume of J-74's in my opinion. I noticed the Martin monels seem a bit more subdued.
    I use the Mangan's on my '13 Vessel F5, and really love how they sound on that...

    Re: Point of Diminishing Returns

    Agree with all the above.

    Stop and do something different, scales, arpeggios, etc.

    I find a lot of my playing on any instrument relies a bit on muscle memory. When you get fatigued and start...

    I have worked through Steve at Cumberland Acoustics to get an EVO refret and custom pickguard in the past.
    They did a stellar job. The action was perfect and immaculate work. They are a little bit...

    Yes you do!!! It's a great and entertaining read.
  16. Re: Wrote me another song... and recorded it.

    I think it sounds terrific...and I really like the vocal delivery....reminds me of Terry Allen. (check him out....interesting cat)
    Mando sounds great as well as the guitfiddle.

    Good job man!

    Re: Matt Flinner on Duff

    Yep...Midnight on the Water.

    It's a Luke Thomasson fiddle tune.
    His son Benny was a legendary Texas style fiddler.

    Re: Jazz 5 Roberts/Tiny Moore Mandolin

    Very cool that you mention your Father playing at Wills Point Lynda.
    From the few photos that have survived, it looked like a very happening spot for live music, and the pool out back for the kids...
  20. Re: Thoughts on starter fiddles/transitioning to fiddle

    When my fiddle curiosity got the best of me, I picked up my wife's 30 year old fiddle she played in high school orchestra.
    It's decent sounding, and more than good enough for me.
    I had a luthier...
  21. Re: Of your favorite instruments that qualify for this site...

    My personal favorite for playing around the house, and with small groups is a Gary Vessel F5.
    Superb tone, and handles all styles of playing with ease.

    Re: Like this site but for guitar....

    AGF and the Unofficial Martin Guitar Forum are the ones I visit daily.

    I tend to prefer the UMGF.
