    very nice design, Murray!
  3. Re: And the prize for worst mandolin photoshop goes to.......

    This one is from one of the dealers at the Dallas Vintage Guitar show years ago. They made these t-shirts for sale.

    They even brought in the police officer in the hat to sign...
  4. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Unless I happen to be in the car, I listen in a similar way and have it in the background, while I'm doing other things. If something is exceptional, I'll write it down and pull it up later on...

    Re: Next-generation Wood?

    Well.....might be something, who knows? I'm sure somebody will give it a chance. Worth a try, IMHO. Something new.

    Carbon Fiber isn't really my thing, but many people love it, for example.

    Re: No more EXP74's?

    On an unrelated note (and probably way too much information) the deodorant I used for 35+ years is no longer being made, as of a couple years ago. Strange to even talk about (especially on a...

    Re: Electro / Acoustic Mandolin

    Tall order.......how about a used Epiphone MM-50E? That should hit your price, look, and sound requirement.

    Otherwise, you could get into a used solid body for even less cash, but I don't know of...

    Re: Stradolin or copy?

    Trying, trying to "wrap" my mind around what I just read.......

    Ok, when given a choice between an original USA mandolin that commonly sells for $100-150 or an import copy, the buyer choses the...

    Re: Mandolin Orange on today Show

    They are masters of the melancholy..........

    in the best possible way, like the Louvin Brothers, mood-wise and theme-wise, although the sound is different.

    Re: B & J Serenader Resonator Mandolin 1930s

    They are not worth that kind of money, but for $100 they are a lot of fun. And, sound surprisingly metallic, believe it or not. And, some people have gone to the trouble of "converting" them to...

    Re: Nut Slots Cut Too Low

    My old trick is just use superglue and not much. No baking soda or bone dust needed. Cut a small strip of paper or index card to use as an applicator. Mask off everything else. Just carefully...
  14. Re: What's the weirdest MUSICAL thing you've ever done?

    My cousin had a similar story in the 60's. He was friends with a popular local teenage garage band who was gigging a lot. Their organ player quit and they said he could join the band even though he...

    Re: Lyon an Healy?

    I have often wondered who bids and buys from shopgoodwill.com. I now know. I've always considered it a bigger gamble than other online instrument sights -- both condition-wise and who is actually...
  16. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    Probably a generational thing, too......kinda like the ol' Thile vs Monroe debate......

    (on guitar forums they have John Mayer vs BB King debates.....believe it or not....)

    Re: Mandolin Close Ups

    Don't take this the wrong way, but you've spent a lot of time on this buzzing issue, IMHO. There are basically 3 or 4 causes and that's it. We can obsess until it drives us crazy. If it is still...

  21. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    I still remember those first A Prairie Home Companion shows and how corny they were -- in a very good, happy way. It may have been the first intentionally ironic show produced ever, not sure, but 35...

    Re: Gibson A1 (requesting information)

    I hope you can understand why the question seems awkward, odd, or even a little nosy.

    Life has peculiar situations like this, of course. I was once "watching" and using a friend's auto while he...
  23. Re: Live From Here - Is There a Better Music Show ANYWHERE?

    What!? Thile uses a tablet holder? Music stand? That's cheating! I thought the man had talent!
