    Re: What tune is this?

    Jacob, I'm with you on building mandolins being addictive! I spend way more time working in the shop and have very little time devoted to picking.

    Re: New Kelley A model violin style

    Bernie, the labor is about the same. Instead of a dovetail neck joint, Iím using the V joint as demonstrated in Siminoffís book. It is fitting with the violin style. Also no celluloid binding. But,...

  14. Re: A little info on this prewar Martin guitar.

    That's what I was thinking about the bridge area. It looks like scraping, sanding and then an attempt to blend the finish in.

    Jim, the bracing is parallel tone bars.

    Will, the tune is Fishers hornpipe. I can play it better if I’m not recording. As soon as I hit the record button, I start messing up!
