  2. Re: Refinishing the top: pros and cons

    Shore is purty! Thanks for the tip!
  3. Re: Refinishing the top: pros and cons

    Aha. What happens? Does alcohol melt finish? What am I looking for? Is this instead of sanding? Is the idea to wipe the finish off or to move it around?

    =O.
  4. Refinishing the top: pros and cons

    I just bought a '34 Gibson A Junior with an extremely beat-up top. (It has no bridge or tailpiece. Yet.)

    I can just leave the top alone. It has as relicky a vibe as I could ever hope for. And zero...

    Yikes! I thought Springsteen was covering the Band!

    Thanks for keeping me honest.

    Re: First Mando Buying Advice

    I learned the hard way that, for some reason, the most finicky part of a mando is the nut. So if you get one and find that your hand or arm hurt or are going numb, have a good luthier take a look at...

    Re: Is this a good deal?

    Buy 'em and mulch 'em. Four fewer banjo books to worry about.

    Re: Z Mandolins

    Carbon fiber guitars sound just like guitars, so that mando probably sounds just like a mando.

    It looks just like a bottle opener.

    Re: What has your mandolin been called?

    It reminds me of what someone said in a nearby thread: Walk into a bank with a violin case and people panic because they think you have a machine gun. Walk in with a banjo case and they panic because...

    Re: New player and instrument

    True and important! And when you're posting here, never refer to a mando as a little guitar. You'll get eaten alive.

    There is one handy guitar connection, though. When you're sitting on your porch...

    Re: Woodstock

    Jimi and Pete were friends (see Lambert and Stamp), but Pete knew they were different kinds of talents. That's what sent him in the Tommy direction. He wanted to do something different with the...

    Nice! I have a couple of friends who still have their tickets. One has his framed. Last week, the other friend told me about his. I said it was valuable. He was amazed. (And pleased.)

    You would have fit right in - and gone home psychedelicized.

    On the way up, we picked up a couple of Tennessee mountain hippies whose truck had broken down. There was just barely enough room in...

    Re: Woodstock

    No, just drums. (Just? That's like saying Hendrix just played guitar!)

    I went to high school in a New York suburb, so going was no sweat. Seemed like half my class was there.
