  1. Re: Paul Shippey and The Best Mandolin in The World

    @Gortnamona - thank you for taking the time to read my post and comment - I know everyone's very busy, so it was kind of you to do that. Cherry and sitka sounds like a lovely instrument: was this...
  2. Re: Paul Shippey and The Best Mandolin in The World

    @ Rob Beck - thanks for taking the time to read my post and comment: I've not located your thread on here, but I had *already* seen the videos you posted, and when I saw them I thought "if I can...

    @lflngpicker, br1ck, usuallypickin and Ivan - thanks for the support and well-wishes, guys, which are earnestly reciprocated.

    @Ron McMillan - thank you for your encouragement, which I take as high...
  4. Re: Paul Shippey and The Best Mandolin in The World

    Hi Dave - thanks for taking time to read my post! That's *quite* the collection of instruments you have listed there - very tasteful indeed. Is this a side-effect of your proximity to the Music Room...
  5. Re: Paul Shippey and The Best Mandolin in The World (Again)

    Hi Brendan - thanks for taking time to read my rambly post, and for being so kind about it! :) You would have to be a better player than me - just statistically, it would be hard not to be! I've not...
  6. Re: Paul Shippey and The Best Mandolin in The World (Again)

    Hi Al - thank you very much for your kind words, I feel genuinely uplifted by them and by the overwhelmingly warm response I have received here on the Mandolin Cafe :) It feels odd, after all these...
  7. Re: Paul Shippey and The Best Mandolin in The World

    Thanks, Gtani! I'm not sure how I would go about a full length blog and I'm sure my writing has limited enough appeal. On the other hand, I know Paul will have plenty of pictures from throughout the...
  8. Re: Paul Shippey and The Best Mandolin in The World

    Thanks, Mandoplumb: you're right, I am a very lucky fellow indeed and wish there were something I could give back to the world in exchange. However - as I said - I am a man of limited talents, so I...
  9. Re: Paul Shippey and The Best Mandolin in The World

    Thank-you, Chuck! This was especially exciting - the last New Mandolin Day I had was when I impulse-purchased the Gibson, so I didn't have to time to build it up! This one was a long time coming...

    Re: Here's an interesting one

    I like this: one of my favourite maxims came from the founder of Judo, Dr. Jigoro Kano, who said "failure is *not* trying".

    Maybe I have my doubts about the finesse of this instrument, but it's...
  11. Re: Paul Shippey and The Best Mandolin in The World

    Thanks Mark! :) you're right - I am fortunate! I didn't mean to crow, so much as to spread the word - especially to the similarly afflicted out there. I will do some videos, but I need to get my...
  12. Paul Shippey and The Best Mandolin in The World (Again)

    *I just posted this on "Builders and Repair" but I'm not sure if that's the right place?*

    I'm a looooong time MandoCafe ghost, but I've just been hanging out in the corner making that one cup of...
  13. Re: Paul Shippey and The Best Mandolin in The World

    Thank you, David - that's kind of you to say that. It's a great experience that inspired it, though :)
  14. Paul Shippey and The Best Mandolin in The World

    I'm a looooong time MandoCafe ghost, but I've just been hanging out in the corner making that one cup of coffee last ~o) since about 1997 ;)
