    Re: Proud Kentucky Pickers - Let's see 'em!!

    Mandola yes but not to the same degree. Mandocello is fine, as is the guitar and tenor banjo. No alternative treatments this time. My commitment is low. The doctor said I could wear finger cots...

    Re: Proud Kentucky Pickers - Let's see 'em!!

    Re: Instruments a material possession?

    Funny, leave $3k in the bank and your "conservative and sensible." Walk around with a $3k mandolin and you somehow become opulent and disgusting. Does auntie have an extra $3k in the bank? Whether...

    Re: Where did all the mandocello guys go ?

    Have not spent much time on my Eastman since getting it properly set-up. Great sounding instrument. I don't know how much effort it will get but I do need to find some time to bond with it more!!

    On my recent tour of the Baltic cities, this scary fellow in the very medieval city of Tallinn, Estonia (former USSR) pegged me as being from "out of town" despite my substantial efforts to try and...

    Re: Kentucky F-Style Master Models

    I have owned some very high end mandolins costing many thousands of $$. Coming back to mandolin after a 3 year hiatus, I knew exactly what I would purchase, a KM1000/1050. I won't be "upgrading." It...
