    Re: A Bridge too far

    Just use both hands and pull the bridge saddle back towards the tailpiece.
    Then check intonation.

    The bridge is not fixed so intonation cabe adjusted by moving it back or forward.
  5. Re: Ken Ratcliff of SilverAngel Mandolins - hand injury!

    Ken,
    So sorry to hear of your accident. Sometimes stuff just happens. Usually for a reason. Maybe while you are recuperating, you will paint your most famous painting.
    I still love my angel...

    It has a very, very slightly canted top. Flat back
    It looks identical to yours. It even has a similar bridge.
    I could email you pictures.
  9. Re: Are these 2 photos enough to identify this mandolin?

    It looks exactly like my Supertone mandolin except mine has a clamshell tailpiece
