    Re: Help me understand

    Iíve owned a Weber Hyalite OM that was carved top/back with an oval hole. It was a rhythm machine but the 22.5 inch scale length was too much for me to cleanly play melodies without a ton of...

    Re: New Mandolin case, a perfect fit

    Always nice when that works out! My Kelley came in a Golden Gate. Agree that they're nice cases for the price. Much better fit than an older (2009-ish) TKL case I used to have.

    Re: What if I bought the wrong instrument?

    Other than flat top guitars, the only 2 oval hole instruments I’ve owned are a Flatiron 1N and a Weber Hyalite OM. I loved the flatiron tone, but Dennis is correct, the F hole style really can play...
