  2. Re: Of your favorite instruments that qualify for this site...

    My personal favorite for playing around the house, and with small groups is a Gary Vessel F5.
    Superb tone, and handles all styles of playing with ease.

    Re: Gibson Tenor Lute

    I recently made a post on Facebook stating how Loar seemed to have a pretty strong liking for his 10 string mando-viola. Multiple public photos of him show him holding it. Being so fond of it it...
