  1. Re: First Time Cafe Seller - Returns Cost Allocation

    This is really the key. Since you're the seller, you can set the terms of sell. And you're right, most ads don't spell it out, but in my view they should. That can certainly cause a lot of ill will...
  2. Re: Gibson Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model - My New Mandolin

    Re: My new Apitius build

    Great choice, my Apitius is a fantastic instrument.
  4. Re: How to choose a good F style mandolin when you are miles from

    I think you have a keeper. Lots of folks think Dave is producing some of the best mandolins that Gibson's ever built. Hopefully you will continue to be satisfied with your purchase and get many...

    Re: Need a safe wall mount mando holder

    I have a Hercules at home, and mounted one on a bookcase next to where the choir stands at church. I can hang my mandolin during mass and not worry that someone will accidentally knock it over. I...
  6. Re: How to choose a good F style mandolin when you are miles from

    Lots of folks are faced with that same problem when looking for a mandolin. There are many many places to shop for guitars, but only a few stores sell mandolins in that price range. So what to do?...

    Re: Mandolins "Opening Up"

    To the OP, it is a fascinating subject, that's why there are so many post about it. Most seem to fall into three camps:


    Those who definitely believe it to be true. There are many prominent...

    Re: Starting Left-handed or right

    This makes a lot of sense to me. When starting out, many right handed folks like myself wonder why we don't fret with our dominant hand. It was so hard (still is) to get my left hand to cooperate....

    Re: mayhem in the music room

    I could take a wild guess as to what happened, but other's have already done a pretty good job at that.

    I will say that it's a shame, it looks like a nice instrument. I also think that splitting...
  11. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Mr. Curleigh starts off by offering a bit of an apology for the video, but immediately takes it back by implying that the ends justifies the means.

    I fail to see how a snarky video can lead to...

    Re: Long term band

    It's a wonderful thing when you've been playing with someone for so long that you know what they are going to do beforehand, it's almost like you can read their mind. My choir director and I have...

    Re: Does Praying Help Find Your Blue Chip?

    I was installing a new microwave and dropped a part behind the range. Try as I might, I couldn't fish it out. So I pulled out the stove, only to find my engraved BC just sitting there waiting for me.
  14. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I'm not a lawyer, and I have no idea if the "use it or lose it" sentiments above will hold up in court. I really have no fault with Gibson trying to protect their intellectual property. But I can say...

    Re: New to the cafe

    Welcome to the forum. We all start out as beginners. I thing that almost anyone can learn the basics of an instrument and learn how to play simple songs if you are willing to practice.

    Re: Ashokan Farewell Tabs anyone?

    I'm a firm supporter of laws that protect intellectual property. In today's world, it's very easy to search for a song tab and just assume because it is posted somewhere that it is lawful and ethical...
  17. Re: How much does a Northfield actually cost to make?

    Well, since time is money, I think this has already been covered:

    Does anybody really know what time it is (I don't)
    Does anybody really care (care about time)
    If so I can't imagine why (no, no)...

    Weldon does exquisite work, here's the one I have. It's very similar on the end, but with a flowerpot on the front.

    Re: Playing level

    This is a good discussion, but in the end, it's always subjective. Many players are advanced in some areas, but rank beginners in other areas. For instance, a electric guitar player may be advanced...

    All I know is that I turned my mandolin upside down yesterday and tried to play it left handed. Suddenly I was thrust into a Bizarro world where nothing seemed as it should be. I tried to play Mary...

    Re: Lefties Who Play Righty?

    My limited understanding of the scientific studies around handedness indicates that it is not always a binary equation. Meaning that not all of us are entirely one hand dominant. There are many who...
