  4. Re: I think something's wrong with my mandolin.

    Can't believe that someone hasn't mentioned this yet, but you clearly need to buy another mandolin... so you can A/B them and find out what's wrong with the first one.

    Re: Andrew Marlin's Gilchrist F5

    That's the mandolin Andrew used on 'Buried In A Cape.'

    Good to hear it's the hands of another player who can do it justice!
