  8. Re: If you always wanted one of those sunfish style mandolins

    Looking at the two I can't help but see the early Simpsons (Tracey Ullman Show) and the tamed down later Simpsons drawing. Brash and then smoothed out and less likely to offend.

    Well, it depends on what you mean by "a good tenor guitar", "a pretty penny" and "cheap enough". Then there is the hope that your luthier won't cost too much.... Definitely ask what they'll charge...
