    Re: Sierra Hull tour

    I was having lunch with Sierra at Fur Peace Ranch when she glanced at her phone and said, "Hey, you live in San Diego. Ever heard of a venue called Art Power?" I sheepishly shook my head no. ...

    Re: Three mandolins at once

    Jack is four years younger than Jorma. I mentioned in another thread that I saw them at The Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach. Jorma and Jack sounded great that night and I loved Jorma's eclectic...

    Re: Solo builders

    I agree with others here in that not only are you veering but you're starting to contradicting yourself. While everyone, including shop owners and other players, will admire your desire to not be an...

    Re: Solo builders

    There is so much more I would like to say in regards to this thread as I do think it's veering away from the OP's original question even if it is the OP who's helping to do the veering. I could...

    Re: Solo builders

    I agree that a good used instrument is the way to go. As mentioned in the "Brought Home A Buckeye!" thread, my 1931 National Duolian is my most played, treasured, and gigged guitar. It wasn't in...

    Re: Solo builders

    I posted my experiences in dealing with Pete Hart who makes The Buckeye Mandolin. It wasn't my first time "jumping into the unknown" and I tried my best to convey some of the feelings that one might...

    Re: Guilty - Aaron Weinstein

    Today I can't think of any other mandolin player who can trump the chord melody stylings of Aaron Weinstein.

    Re: Just so excited!!!

    One of the joys of getting a luthier built custom instrument is getting to see photos and interact with it's maker as it's being built. It can occasionally be nerve-wracking and a cause for second...

    Re: Monteleones in the Denver Area?

    That GA 10-String Monteleone looks tempting. There is a photo of a less ornate but even more tempting one on page 115 of Walter Carter's book "The Mandolin In America." I too would worry that...

    Re: Brought home a Buckeye!

    Hey, ManjoMan,

    Thanks for giving another long term update on your Buckeye. I'm just amazed at how #87 plays and sounds so much better after he made the requested "tweaks" to it. That kind of...

  18. Re: Nut Width for new build - how important, really

    Hi Shaun,

    I believe that you and I are in the same Flinner class. I'm with Jim Garber in that thickness of the neck may have more to do with things than the width of the nut. Check out my...

    Not only was it loud upon first tune up, but it sounded like it had more bass with the mids being rich and gorgeous like never before. While before it had the woody and bright sound of a tone bar...
