    Re: NMD: Howard Morris A-4 #430

    OK, so: photos. And apologies right up front, because they're awful in that they don't come near doing this instrument justice.

    This a a seriously sweet little axe. I wondered what a cedar top...

    NMD: Howard Morris A-4 #430

    New, as in straight out of the extremely well-packed shipping box and just tuned up.

    This is a beauty.

    More info and (I hope!) pics to follow shortly.
  3. Re: Please talk about your experience with the Mandola.

    I have an Eastman DGM3 (i.e. Lyon & Healey knockoff) mandola. It gets played less than my mandolins, but enough to keep it around even after I get an octave. To my ears, the mandola meshes better...
  4. Re: For All Of You On The Southeast US Coast

    Thank you, NDB.

    The US Coast Guard have descended in force and are now conducting constant SAR missions. As a fuller picture emerges it's unlikely to get any prettier. This was apocalyptic. Those...

    Re: What has your mandolin been called?

    Ukulele, banjo, and wuffo (short for "wuffo you play that funny-lookin' little guitar?").

    Re: Northfield Marshall Mandolin Summit

    I'm mostly chiming in to second everything slinds said.

    Go if you can. The Marshall Mandolin Summit is worth it and then some.

    A more personal take: most of what I've done on mandolin so far...

    How many bassists does it take to change a lightbulb?
    None. The keyboard player can do it with his left hand.

    Re: NMD: Northfield F2S

    I'm not sure what kind of burst it's called; maybe tobacco? Personally I think it looks like milk chocolate and honey. It's a lovely finish. :) I'll be more than happy to post photos as soon as I can...

    Re: Who played

    Blowing pretty hard down here for the past few days, but the temperature is nice and rain is intermittent so a handful of us had an impromptu jam on the deck at the neighborhood Bait 'n' Brew.

    Re: Who plays a mandolin worth.......

    I don't, but only because currently I don't own a car. I'll cheerfully pay more for a mandolin than for a car, and intend to do just that in the next few months. (Minor detail: I refuse to buy a car...

    Re: Florida Luthier/Mandolin Store

    Wolfe Guitars in Jupiter are, as their name implies, guitar-centric, but I've seen them stock Breedlove and (IIRC) Weber mandolins including some pretty nice ones. If you're looking to have work done...

    Retro-progressive Caribbean Gothic surf punk alt-country doomgrass. Or something like that, if I feel like trying to make their eyes cross.

    Re: next instrument fantasies

    It may be a little pathological, but recently I retuned a 6-string dreadnaught to C-G-D-A-c-e just to get a feel for whether I could adapt to mandocello fingering. The high c and e were arguably...
