    Re: Should I pay for damage caused?

    Jeff,

    Agreed unless the instrument was carelessly parked.
    In which case the owner has some responsibility/liability.
  6. Re: Article: D'Addario Announces Launch of D'Addario X Mandolin S

    XT Mandolin Strings are listed by two of my favorite on-line dealers at $12.99. None available locally as yet.

    Re: Removing the Florida extension

    If you don't play above the 6th fret... why not scoop from the 7th and be done with it.

    Oh, that would be limiting? So is removing the extension for many players (currently and historically) who...
  13. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Gibson's corporate objective, by my observation, was, and is, to increase the value of the stock/shares.

    Re: Remove Frets & Scoop

    Fully fretted, always.

    I find it curious that the affectation of removing frets and scooping hasn't hit the guitar world but seems to be prevalent with mandolin and banjo (frailing/clawhammer)
