    Re: Removing Northfield Pickguard

    Yup it's that simple and you may be over thinking it. Just be careful not to slip and gouge with the screwdriver. I take mine off and put it back on occasionally.

  6. Re: Peghead Nation - Monroe Style or Intermediate Bluegrass cours

    Can’t speak to Mike Compton’s class as I haven’t taken it but Sharon’s Intermediate class was great, learned some great tunes. She’s got some good tips for playing with a relaxed left and right hand...
  7. Re: D'Addario's new Chris Thile signature mandolin

    I think the 1.4mm version gives the designer picks even stiffer competition than the 1.3mm. :grin:

    Sorry, couldnít resist that.

    Re: Prairie Home Companion reviews

    Loved the live stream show tonight. As a long time fan of Prairie Home I think Chris Thile is a great choice as host. Not a replacement for Garrison mind you, who could do that? But instead a...

    Re: Difference between early Flatiron A models:

    Re: Difference between early Flatiron A models:

    Just bought a '90 A5 Jr. It has MOP logo as opposed to decal. Interesting that these post Gibson models upgraded to MOP. Love the tasteful brown sunburst top on this one and really like the tone.
