    Re: Stiver Mandolin Experience

    Good luck with the wait! My last custom order was expected to take 1.5 yrs...time stood still! Then the Luthier announced to me that I’d jumped up in line and I received delivery at 10 months. ...

    Re: Did someone say PICKS?

    If that was a pile of blue chips, you could really impress me:disbelief:

    What would the shipping be if that was the pick sampler? And how long would each member take to sample!?

    Re: Insomniacs? Asians?

    As a gigging musician, I frequently get home late and can't just fall asleep. I try not to post late, as my "cafe correctness filter" doesn't work well when inhibitions are lowered:mandosmiley:

    Re: Dots or no dots

    Even when I was at my heaviest, I've never seen the fret board while playing my mandolin. Side dots get used every session.

  14. Re: Decision Time for wood type - Is the difference big?

    My Weber is POCedar, it is rich and bell like, not woody, not a woofy chop.
  15. Re: Decision Time for wood type - Is the difference big?

    I have a cedar top and an adi topped, one with red maple one with big leaf maple(I think)...they are different. That being said, they are from two different master builders, so what is causing the...

    Re: Sounds descriptions

    I have two nice mandolins, both have toneguards. The 12 year old Weber has had one since it was six months old. No dents or marring. I suppose denting could happen from rough handling.
