    Re: New tenor

    I had one. It was a nice guitar. I agree it’s a bit overbuilt. It sounds good and the neck is nice. It is not on the level of a high end tenor, obviously. It handles GDAE well. I also had a Kala,...

    Re: Light vs. Medium vs. Heavy Picks

    I think that’s a ridiculous argument. It’s all about what tone and feel you prefer.

    Re: NK Forster Parlor King

    Thanks Nigel. That is probably the only video I didn’t watch. The Parlor King sounds wonderful too. Amazing tenor guitars. I play GDAE, and a 22 inch scale is perfect as I’m playing the fiddle part...

    Re: NK Forster Parlor King

    Nigel, that’s good to know. There is an almost zero chance I’d want to return it. I was listening to videos of the Session King again today, and I just love how it sounds. It made we think it might...
  8. Re: Flatiron Pancake v. Sawchyn Beavertail v. Poe Scout

    The Sawchyn Beavertail and Hobo would be a fair test, particularly if we could compare several of each model. The only differences between the two, that I’ve read, are a sitka top for the Beavertail...
  9. Re: Flatiron Pancake v. Sawchyn Beavertail v. Poe Scout

    Tyler, your video was followed by David Grisman playing the same tune. I personally liked the tone of your Hobo better than the F style that he was playing. It’s a fuller, richer tone, a more...
  10. Re: Flatiron Pancake v. Sawchyn Beavertail v. Poe Scout

    Another one that the builder sells in the classified section here is the Morris flattop. The price is right, and the reviews I’ve seen are excellent. I haven’t played one but would love to. There are...
  11. Re: Flatiron Pancake v. Sawchyn Beavertail v. Poe Scout

    If you’re looking, I’d expand your search. There are a lot of nice flattops being made. The Northfield Calhoun sounds wonderful on the video of Sharon Gilchrist playing it. She could make almost any...

    Re: Poe #75 pancake in classifieds

    He hasn’t updated the website in several years. I emailed him twice, several months apart, and didn’t get a response. People seem very happy with his instruments and all the pancakes are gorgeous...

    Re: Poe #75 pancake in classifieds

    I was so tempted when I saw it last night, but it’s not the best time for me to buy an instrument. I’m sure it will be easy to sell if the buyer changes his mind. Anyone know why Andy hasn’t been...

    Re: NK Forster Parlor King

    Harley, yeah, I’m sure it sounds a little different than the Session King. I’d want to hear a good video of it, at a minimum. I’m not sure I want to order an instrument from overseas..... what if I...

    Poe #75 pancake in classifieds

    Someone buy this, it’s gorgeous. I’m perfectly happy with my Beavertail, but a Poe pancake is one of the flattop mandolins I most want to try. The Poe pancake videos, for example #60, sound...

    NK Forster Parlor King

    I love how his Session King tenor sounds in the videos, but for me, one of the attractions of a tenor guitar is itís compact size. the Parlor King with a 22 inch scale would fit perfectly with my...

    Re: Post A picture of your favorite "A" model

    I know itís not quite on the same level, but I love my Beavertail. It has a warm, rich tone, is easy to play, and I love how it looks, with great build quality and itís simple, pancake lines. Itís...

    Re: What's The One That Got Away?

    I kind of wish I didn’t sell my Fletcher tenor guitar. My Herb Taylor archtops are better guitars in every way, but the Fletcher had it’s charms. It was such a pretty instrument.

    Re: NMD Sawchyn Hobo Flat top

    Sounds great! I have a Beavertail and it’s a wonderful mandolin. I’d love to play or hear a Hobo and Beavertail side by side. The Hobo is such a unique, cool pancake mandolin.

    Re: beside the mandolin.

    My main instrument is GDAE tuned tenor guitar. I could play tenor banjo too with the same tuning, itís an easy switch, but Iíd only do it if I needed the volume. I love how my tenor guitars sound,...

    Re: Sawchyn for a newb?

    That is already selling for an excellent price. If it was me and you tried to haggle down an already great deal I’d just say I’ll sell it to someone else and move on.

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    For me it’s an easy decision, I’d buy the Waterloo. I’d love to hear more videos of it. The other flat top I’d love to hear is the Sawchyn Hobo. I can’t find anything online. The Sawchyn Beavertail...

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    I agree with Marty, these are more for crossover Collings guitar enthusiasts. They are not competition for archtop mandolins since flat tops are a different sound. Like the Waterloo guitars they are...
