    Re: Moon Wood

    I'm wondering if that marketing blub is mainly a garbling of something traditional that may actually have potential merit.

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    Ha! I would really like to hear what the dendrologists among us think of this. Sounds like marketing for those of a certain esoteric mindset.

    Is it harvested on a certain full moon, ie. the "Full...
  8. Re: "banjo-mandolin" and "nice sounding": an oxymoron?

    Sounds like you are more motivated to give this one the TLC it needs :)

    Mine's been modified to have 4 strings, has foam under the bridge and inside. I like the sound of it, but neither my DH nor...

    Re: Post a pic of your cat sleeping in your case

    Between those photos, I see at least 5 instruments out, so it seems that if they wanted a case to themselves, it should be available. I'm envious that your cats are bonded. Mine would never share a...
