    1) What bothers me most about this video is that the message violates the camaraderie and the cooperative nature of the luthiery community. Gibson is taking a go-it-alone and...

    Re: My new Airline Electric Mandola

    Hi Joe,

    You've done what I would have done to start: get a new set of strings. Old strings can be a source of a lot of weirdness.

    Have you had the instrument set up?

    Ivan,

    I'm speechless, and so sorry for you. I've been sitting on this reply for a few days not knowing what to say.

    I wish you the best possible outcomes and a long life.

    Hi Michael,

    Chet Atkins's tone was very clean, Jerry Reed often played a nylon string guitar (as does Willie Nelson). You can play country music with your set up.
