    Guitar Center

    I just noticed that Guitar Center is apparently running some sort of reduced pricing and special 48 month financing, for about the next week or so.

    Jeff, I think you missed my entire point. The point is not that I or anyone else was sold a great mandolin. It is a push back for their bullying that has been taking place for many years now and in...

    Re: The real glue strength

    It holds well enough. I've used it for about 100 fret jobs over the last 20 years. I've had only maybe 5 or 6 ends lift up in that time. That's not too bad a record for 2000 frets.

    If they stay with your mandolin, they will always be there.
    Stick the pick under the strings when you put the mando in the case.
