    Re: Blem Mandolins

    I bought a blem from TMS a few years ago. I think that is a wise thing to do, as you can get a better mandolin that way. The blemish on mine is not easily visible at all, and it makes no difference...

    Re: Eastman - back/neck separation

    Yay. Eastman gives a lifetime warranty to the original owner. It sounds like they stand behind their warranty. Great news.
