    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    lflngpicker - your budget is right in the sweet spot for a lifetime A5! It is unfortunate that I can't recommend that you take a trip to Carter's or Gruhn's in Nashville at this Covid time to sit...

  7. Re: Some variations on the Sorensen Sprite Two-Point

    I've loved the look of the Sprite since I first found your website, and love the tone on mine. Wish I could afford a "Flight" of Sorensens!

  10. Re: Learn to play multiple instruments at once?

    Re: Clown Barf picks available

    I added an order for several - although I usually use a BC, these will go in my pick pouch on my keychain. Harder to loose if you drop them!

    I couldn't find the thread on a cursory search, but I seem to remember that many of the pre-truss rod Gibson mandolins look like they have a 3-piece neck, but it is not a true 3-piece lamination,...

    Glassweb - it also illustrates why I would rather admire and play those mandolins than try to make one!
