    Re: is 17" scale adequate for electric OM?

    My 5 string emando from Jonathan Mann has an 18.5" scale and, though it isn't floppy, it's loose :grin:

    Re: Has COVID affected your MAS?

    I started out collecting banjos & them moved to guitars & then to mandolins :grin: Actually, violin preceded all of them so I s'pose tuning in 5ths was my gateway :mandosmiley:
  8. Re: Northfield F5S consistency (or buying without checking)

    I try to keep my expectations low in situations like this but mine were exceeded in spades! I think the waiting tends to go faster when woodshedding but YMMV :))

  10. Re: Northfield F5S consistency (or buying without checking)

    I bought a flat top OM & Big Mon online & both are spectacular. It's admittedly a small sample size but I'd be confident in Northfield's consistancy :grin:

    I use a VintageGard on mine. I also don't use my case so fit isn't a concern.
  12. Re: Looking for a Mandola and I need some advice.

    I liked the Eastman's I've owned for the price but found them to be a little thin on tone. I haven't played a Sawchyn but I'd prolly go for that or a Flatiron if I had the choice.

    Re: Tone-Gard and Big Muddy Jumbo Mandolins

    I have a VintageGard on my flat top Beard. Tony didn't think a Gard would fit due to the hips. I tried one of the ones I already had & it fits fine. It's a little off center compared to my others...

    Re: Armrest for a Northfield Big Mon

    For me, the only difference is the length of the barrels used. I like McClungs so ordered the longer barrels when I bought them. The ones on my Mon are 1 1/16". The trick to buying them online is...

    I had an Eastman OM for a little while with a strap button on the heel & didn't have any problems with neck dive or balance.

    I don't have the micro adjust version but I do have the 3 bearing guide on the same setup. I bought a floor model from my local Woodcraft at a good discount & upgraded the guide when I bought it. ...
