    Re: Eastman 315

    If I remember correctly, they were Grover 309's.
    Really, the 315 as it comes is a great mandolin and should give you no trouble. Just play it and enjoy it!

    Re: 61 F5 at Carters

    I have not heard this mandolin but it seems to me that for over 4K one could easily find a much better sounding and built mandolin than a 1960's Gibson. And at Carters at that. They are in the...

    Re: Nice Looking F4 at Music Folk

    Congratulations on a beautiful F-4 JB! I have never played a 20's F-4 with a trussrod only ones from the teens. They certainly have a certain mojo about them. How does the neck on your F-4 compare to...

    Re: A couple odd tenors on ebay

    JB, I agree, to me the Yari sounds very tinny and thin. I would like to hear the leather clad Les Paul tenor though.

    Re: A couple odd tenors on ebay

    Given the geometry and bridge position on the Yari, I doubt it sounds very good.

    Re: Quick Question on Eastman Finish

    Some builders use a base coat of shellac on instruments and then spray lacquer over it. Shellac is a varnish.

    Re: Not Mandolin butů..

    Your video is showing an error and will not play.
  21. Re: do you own/have experience with a Martin Style 5 Terz?

    If you are interested in the Pono, The Mandolin Store carries the Terz size octave mandolin. You might ask Dennis if the six string Terz is available.

    Good hunting!
  22. Re: do you own/have experience with a Martin Style 5 Terz?

    I hope I did lead you astray, I can't find a single Pono Terz guitar for sale and the Pono website does not appear to work.
  23. Re: do you own/have experience with a Martin Style 5 Terz?

    If you are reluctant to spend the $ on a Martin, Pono makes them.....

    Wow! I have never seen a Paramount tenor guitar. Any way we can see the whole instrument front and back? :grin:
