    Re: Pre NAMM discussion

    I hope Skye will also take pictures of some of the more 'unconventional' hair-dos and outfits. It seems like half the fun of NAMM would be the crowd itself.

    Congratulations on Skye's...

    Re: Attic Find

    Look at the wear marks on the neck. Doesn't it look like it may have been strung in 5 courses, not six? I wish the nut or tailpiece was present so we could see how it was strung.

    Re: 1909 A4 Gibson Factory Revamped

    If I was looking for one, I'd sure be interested in this one. Wouldn't have to worry about it as much as an one in original condition. Could put a pickup in it without feeling guilty about it. ...

    Re: What if I bought the wrong instrument?

    Ultimately, you are likely to want multiple voices in your arsenal. Keep it, play it, enjoy it. When you have gained some experience, re-evaluate your needs. Then you may want to add instruments...

    Re: Is there a mandolin equivelent out there?

    It sure did get my cats' attention, and they didn't know what to think of it. They may have thought the tablet was purring, I'm not sure. Normally they pay no attention to sounds coming from the...

    +1 Toni. Same sentiment from me.

    I think the Peace graphic on the landing page today would make a great sticker or tee shirt. Let's all work toward peace in our communities, wherever they may be.
