    Re: Mando upgrade - opinions sought

    IMHO, this question has little to do with value, sound, craftsmanship, affordability or practicality! It's all about MAS! Quit trying to justify; buy!

    Re: Regal Deco Mandolin Circa 1939

    Thanks for posting that link, Nick! Although not a Lloyd Loar or an Embergher (sic), that Regal is a great looking period piece, even if just as a wall- hanger! Love to have it!

    Re: Storm videos

    Wow! Thanks for the videos, Carl! Glad you came through with little damage! Not much like that here in Towson, MD; did watch "Twister" the other day! Scary, where you are!

    I wake up each morning and shake out my wits.

  20. Re: Looking for info on F body built by Jim Harvey of Western MD

    Great looking mandolin! Real homegrown craftsmanship! I'd be anxious to have it set-up, only to improve its playability and, perhaps, sound. One-way-or-another, I'd be happy with a purchase like that!
