    Re: Trying to make a modest leap...

    As you get closer to the $1000 range, the Eastmans and Loars do get better in quality, I can't say the same for the Kentucky or Washburns.
    My first "upgrade" was to an $800 Washburn, but alas I...

  14. Re: Mando Acquisition Syndrome and the Mandocello

    I have a Ratliff F4 with the oval hole, which has a narrower fretboard than the Goldtone, so the stretches are slightly easier.
    I've posted examples of both in the CBOM section.
    It was more than...

    Re: Storage: Case vs Hanging on the Wall
