    Re: James tailpiece on a Northfield F5S?

    I'm such an idiot. Eyeballing the two and taking some rough measurements, it appears to be a direct drop-in (excepting the jack drilling). I'll leave it to one of our luthier members (or...

    Re: James tailpiece on a Northfield F5S?

    Interested in this as well. The stock tailpiece is ok, but once I got my Kimble, I realized how much easier string changes are with the James.

    I'd need to have one drilled out for a K&K jack,...

    Re: Newbie needs equipment advice

    Congrats! I think you chose wisely. Make sure the instrument is set up properly (either from the seller or from a shop).

    While you should definitely look for an in-person instructor, you can...

    Re: Dreaming of a Great A5 under $6000

    Probably can't go wrong with any of the instruments listed. I was able to play all of those (except a Kelly) as well as Gibsons, Northfields and others, in one splendid afternoon at Fiddlers last...

    Not sure what's 'fragile' about a 1/2" thick piece of maple....

    I wouldn't use it to hammer a nail, but frankly, it would probably work ok for that. Love my F5S like my children.

    Re: Strap Recommendation

    I have one each:

    Lakota (braided elk)
    Sully's (flat saddle leather)
    Little Satchel (braided kangaroo)

    All three are great. None are cheap. Current fave is the Little Satchel.

  17. Re: I have read other threads and i am still confused- newbie man

    I think your math is backwards. Using the formula above (and it's a good rule of thumb), a $150 mandolin would be equal to a $75 guitar (not $300).

    You may be able to find something for $150, but...
