    Re: New Vessel Loar A5 tribute

    Ummm...there was only one Loar A5...so yep.

    Violin makers have been copying Strads and Guarneri's for hundreds of years...it's a tribute......you get it or you don't....unless a builder passes it...

    Re: Early 90's Gibson A5L

    I got a Duff A and that was the game changer for me.

    I would of been completely happy with the A5L, but the Duff is on a whole other level.

    Re: Early 90's Gibson A5L

    I owned this one for a few years. It's a good one. Decent volume with a woody tone.
    The pickguard and EVO frets were done by Steve at Cumberland Acoustics.

    Re: Mando and guitar string question

    Round core strings are generally less tension for a given gauge.

    Newtone strings masterclass mediums have as much, or close to, the same tension as Daddario lights.
    Curt Mangan also makes round...

    Re: 1984 vs New Duff F5 Style Mandolin

    It used to be Mason William's guitar.

    Mark and Tyler are incredible pickers.
    I've met and picked with Tyler. Super nice fella and incredibly talented on just about any string instrument.

    Re: Iluak Ivory - gone??

    I know last year they took some time off, and were back within a month.
    Hopefully that's the case again.
  13. Re: Wrote me another song... and recorded it.

    I think it sounds terrific...and I really like the vocal delivery....reminds me of Terry Allen. (check him out....interesting cat)
    Mando sounds great as well as the guitfiddle.

    Good job man!
  14. Re: Of your favorite instruments that qualify for this site...

    My personal favorite for playing around the house, and with small groups is a Gary Vessel F5.
    Superb tone, and handles all styles of playing with ease.

    Re: First pickguard Attempt

    I think it looks great!

    Very cleanly cut and matches the aesthetic of the instrument very well IMO.

    Re: No more EXP74's?

    I believe the XT's are taking over from the EXP's.

    The XT's sound pretty good and just a little different than the EXP's. Like they're a little bit "broken in" out of the box.

    Re: Finger Ease

    I did a few clinics in the past with guitar player Kenny Smith.
    He said the first thing he does when he picks up an instrument, is to warm up using only the slightest touch with his fretting hand,...
