    Re: Lafferty LF-5D

    I have a Lafferty as well - a mahogany body octave. Really nice tone, although I wish it had an adjustable truss rod, as I'd like to drop the action a tiny bit more but there is just the slightest...

    The difference in arrival date from Amazon has to do with what shipping option you specified and whether or not you are an Amazon Prime member. Well, the difference in arrival date once it is...

    Silk and Steel or Bronze?

    Trying various strings on my mandolins to see the tone differences. I see GHS silk and bronze and silk and steel strings - what is the difference between them - other than you can't use bronze...

    Not directly, no. (There are some complicated quasi-legal ways to do it, but it involves several bits of software and some finagling.) In a bit of staggering ball-dropping from Apple, iTunes books...

    Re: Instruments (as carry ons ) on airplanes

    You need to know your planes - my roll-aboard is 19"x9.5"x13" European spec (actual measurements, not manufacturer spec, because they all lie by not including wheels and handle) and it doesn't fit in...

    Re: Women with Mandolins

    Interesting - G C E A tuning, with the G and C as octaves and the E and the A as unison, like a mandolin. Bet you can't run down to Guitar Center and buy strings....

    I've sold things on Craigslist without a problem, although usually in the sub-$100 range. When I tried to sell my 4 year old Mini Cooper S (for considerably more than $100), the scammers came out of...

    Re: Mandocaster Case

    While we're on the topic, does anyone have a recommendation for the smallest gig bag that a SAGA tele-style fits in? I've tried my cold tennis racquet bag and it's not a good fit.

    Re: Best Mando under $700???

    For just under $700, I bought an Eastman 504 last year (oval hole, probably not what you are looking for). For $795 I bought a 1918 Gibson A off ebay (also oval hole). I spent a lot of time reading...
