    Re: New Pono octaves!

    A guitar neck, for sure. Or a tenor guitar neck. It's quite comfortable. The neck is 1 3/8". The 23" scale is a bit of a stretch, but it's a good work out!

    Re: New Pono octaves!

    I made it very clear in my original comments that I was not and am not disparaging Indonesian craftsmanship. I am happy with the quality, sound, playability etc of this octave. I regret that I did...

    Re: New Pono octaves!

    I apologize for my misinformation. I had only looked at the info on the Mandolin Store page, and the KR strings cite. I have no problem with the instrument - it plays like a dream, and it sounds...

    Re: New Pono octaves!

  8. Re: Fender MandoStrat Solidbody Electric Mandolin

    What's the latest word on the quality of these? I wouldn't expect much at this price, but how does it compare to others in the range?
  9. Re: Stan Jay, Pioneer of Vintage Instrument Fame Fighting For His

    I'm so lucky to have met Stan on my (very few) trips to SI. He did us all such a fine service, and with such style. He will be missed, but he made a difference, and that is worth celebrating.

    Re: Name That Collings Mandolin and Win It!

    I'd go with "Dazed and Confused" since this seems to be the condition of many of the submitters thus far. Also, both the mando and the movie hail from Austin.

    The single greatest jam in the history of music camps. Ok, maybe there have been others as good, but it's impossible for any to have ben better. I have almost 3 hours of the 5 hours they played on...

    I'd like to experiment a bit and put a modern, adjustable bridge on my 1920 A4. What bridges would you recommend?
