    That is Del & Dawg. The only video I know of Perpetual Dawg is at the 46:15 mark in this live recording of the Dawg Trio at DelFest 2018. I saw him play this tune with Tommy Emmanuel at the...

    Thx Wrnchbndr . . . I picked these up recently, any thoughts on them? Or is there a set of diamond crowning tools you could recommend?

    Re: proper fret dress

    Great answers, I get it.

    Lastly, I've always wondered about the fret board wood when sanding / polishing the frets. Does the wood need to be protected from say 600 grit paper? Obviously just...

    proper fret dress

    Should frets be rounded or slightly flattened? Why and what are the issues if it's done wrong?

    Wouldn't it be cool if the Naval officer pictured pickin' his mando happened to chime in here! Would love to know his story and I'd love to know what song he's playing.

    Re: Action vs clarity

    Br1ck - I passed the penny test. Just slides under the e strings, just doesn’t on the G.

    Obviously not precision here. A penny width doesn't qualify as "low action", but for me it's a very...

    Re: Action vs clarity

    I discovered that for myself a few years ago while reading a similar thread. My F5 was set fairly low, I raised the saddle up a little bit and boy, I couldn't believe the added volume and punch. The...

    Sorry, don't have time to scroll through 72 pages. I'm quite sure I'd find Eva Holbrook already listed. But this lovely woman is an incredibly talented player - and her rendition of Tuscany is just...

    Re: Today the Music Died

    No Jim G. It was the entire VIDEO of the show from which the CD was taken - nearly 2 hours long. Not an audio recording of a different show posted to YT. Maybe one day this treasure will reappear,...

  19. Re: Advice needed for this seam separation

    I wish all solutions involved do nothing for now. Thanks a lot for everyone's thoughts.
  20. Re: Advice needed for this seam separation

    Was able to get a good view inside and everything looks fine. I'm quite sure that it is the binding that has pulled loose. Again, my thought is just to watch it. I've been advised not to use super...
  21. Re: Advice needed for this seam separation

    Thanks pops1, now that you bring it up, I'll bet it is only the binding shrinking / pulling loose and not a structural seam separating. I'm guessing that this is not nearly as serious. I have a...
  22. Re: Advice needed for this seam separation

    Well, I have a good reference photo to go by, so if it is a separation from a while back and has stabilized to this point, what about doing nothing for the time being and keep an eye on it? If I...
  23. Advice needed for this seam separation

    Recently purchased a very nice top-tier mando. My initial thought is that the seam separation has probably been there for a while now and perhaps, it's something to just watch for now. Short of the...
