    Re: Why Mandolin?

    Moved to a small village in Mexico years ago and fell into a jam with a group of ex-pats. Same old story, too many guitars on the porch. The host had an old bowl back mando which had been neglected....

  16. Anybody going/been to Alan Bibey Mandolin Camp?

    Anybody going to Alan's camp this year? Who has been in the past? I live in town, so it seems like a no brainer. Would love to hear more from those that have been.

    I have a MD515 which was an upgrade from my Loar, bang for the buck, it's hard to beat (I know, I could have got a nice A for the same money...). I bought it here on The Cafe, it was well set up....
