    I'm not surprised. Sad to say, but larger brick and mortar operations need an actual value add past "you get to see it in the store" these days to say afloat. And with online competitors like...

    Re: Tortoise shell pick alternative

    I will also add a vote for Apollo Picks. I have been an avid BlueChip user and one touch of the thermoplastic pick from Nik at Apollo and I was hooked. He's had great communication. The thermoplastic...

    Re: Why Mandolin?

    Randomly. I've played guitar since I was 8, was in a ska/punk band for 5 years, etc.

    Thanks so much for all the advice. This part of it really hit me. It's true that if I can't really tell off the bat, there's no point in moving on. (though I'm sure that won't happen, lol)

    Thanks a ton! Great info. It helps to know more about Gibsons not necessarily being all winners. Will ultimately need to make sure I have a window to try or the ability to do it in person.
