    Without a doubt, I would get in touch with Bob Jones in Brooklyn (Park Slope). He is super-knowledgable on vintage instruments and very competitively priced. If it's going to be too much, he'll let...

    As a fellow Dawg mandolin owner, I would love to see some other instruments from the set (mandola, mandocello); someone has to have some pictures on their hard drive or something. It seems we only...

    Beautiful mandolin - and already with a killer sound. I could only imagine how it will project in a year or so!. While I respect Glassweb's thoughts on the "Florida," is it me or is this extension a...

    Re: Martin Backpacker Mandolins

    Hey Mike,

    I've played a couple of Martin backpackers - both mandolins and guitars - and have always felt that they sounded very frail and thin. While it's not meant to be a monster of a mandolin...

    Re: Grey Fox 2009 Cafe Meet and Greet?

    So...I have a feel this is not going to happen if we don't solidify something soon here. I think 4pm on Friday was mentioned - at the D'Addario tent? Does that work for everybody? Bueller? Bueller?

    This logo looks great. As a big fan of F-style mandolins, I give it a thumb's up. Either a small, left-side placement or full-size front alignment would look good in my book. Please...

    This is quite an interesting thread! As someone who grew up in the late 80's/early 90's (I'm 26), I was exposed to a lot of hip-hop before I even knew what a mandolin was. I am not sure if this album...
