  7. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    I agree Bernie, that the introduction of the F5L was a big step in the right direction in Gibson's return to building a respectable mandolin. But it took those other "builders getting in the game...

    Re: Show Low AZ

    Wish I could help you there Kbone. Pretty area there for sure but no idea about BG jams etc.

    From the looks of it, all of these corporate big shots are owed a 'Cease and Desist' letter from Marlon Brando.

  16. Re: Open chords vs closed chords for chops n chucks

    Re: Ashokan Farewell Tabs anyone?

    There is a difference between the Dixie Chicks making a profit singing 'I'll Fly Away', and some regular Joe singing it at the Saturday night Jam. There may be no legal distinction, but there is one...

  24. Re: Article: C.J. Lewandowski Talks Early Gibson Fern History
