    Thanks!
    Yeah, I realized it felt really funny when I was playing it and I brought the bridge down a bit. Works great but the buzz that it had before got worse (it already had a little bit of a...

    Re: Modified Rogue RM-100A

    Haha thanks! It's my first time trying something like this. Definitely will go to a professional if I ever wanted to do something like this on something more expensive. :))

    Re: Help!!! Sanding High Gloss Down to "Satin"

    By the way, I followed through! Not the best "de-glossing" job but I personally am happy with it!

    Re: Books...and Specifically, Intermediate Books???

    I got a lot of musical friends and I think it would be awesome to be able to jam with them and musical friends in the future! So I think building that level of fluency is what I'm going for.

    Help!!! Sanding High Gloss Down to "Satin"

    Hi! I have this pretty nice-looking cheap mandolin. It's got a high gloss finish.

    I've had it for years now and I've been thinking of sanding it down to make it look a bit more "satin-y".
