    Re: Eastman MD305 Tuners

    I love clown barf pics of all kinds. Something about that color scheme to me. Don’t know why.

    Re: RIP Kenny Rogers

    Back in 1998 or so I was driving down a desert highway somewhere in New Mexico. I got behind a nice RV with “The Gambler’s Roost” written on the back in a fancy custom paint job. When I passed it I...

  13. Re: Tom Bedell's TED Talk on sustainable woods for instruments

    I enjoyed his talk. I wonder if the same standard applies to his China-made guitars?

    Bob Taylor is also to be commended when it comes to this issue. There’s a lot of good info out there on the...

    FG is the coolest acoustic music store I’ve ever been to, hands down. I got my MT there several years ago. Nice folks too.

    My wife’s piano is from 1898 and is still operational. I’m not sure if we have the original strings or not, but the last time it was tuned the man said it needed new ones. He also said the job...

    I was thinking the same, but when it does happen it must be a whopper of a job and a bill on top of that. That harp was absolutely beautiful and the sound the young woman got out of it was heavenly....

    Went to the symphony hall last night to see some great trio pieces. As the harper (harpist?) was playing, I kept thinking of what a time she must have changing strings. Made me grateful to have...

    Re: Ibanez Buyer beware

    These model numbers surely mean something to the manufacturer (I work in manufacturing and see it every day), but can look too complicated to the consumer. YMMV.

    Re: Ibanez Buyer beware

    Just as an observation, I often wonder why some builders give their instruments model numbers like “M522SDVS”? (Takamine guitars have some model numbers twice that long.) Who can keep up? Maybe...

    My previous mandolin was an Eastman 505. Very different neck shape and the Eastman had a narrower nut. A way different feel and a night and day difference in tone and sound, the Collings being...
