  6. Re: Differences between Eastwood Mandostag and Godin A8

    kurth83 I should have said Mandocaster - sorry. So would you be saying the Godin and Mandocaster are essentially similar? Or am I being obtuse?

  7. Differences between Eastwood Mandostag and Godin A8

    I know absolutely nothing about electric mandolins - so please bear with my question. For practical purposes are these two mandolins essentially the same? Thank you in advance.

    Re: Round Bevel vs Speed Bevel

    I always keep two of each pick that I like - one with a rounded edge and one with a bevel. For certain situations I will also get a more pointed version of a pick as well. My picks are BC's and Red...

    Re: Substantial sale at Bernunzio's

    Every year the Umberto Ceccherini drops $1000. And every year I stare at it. The glitz and fluting are pretty spectacular. I've always wondered how it sounds and why it is still for sale!
