    Re: Collings MT2 Review

    I really enjoyed reading this and watching your videos (as well as Kym's!). I had an MT for a couple of years back in the day, and always wondered how they differed from an MT2, other than the...

    Re: Fiddolin ??????

    It's a little bit mad science-y and I can respect that. We're all of us a little bit outside the mainstream, or we wouldn't be here. That said, I can't see that there's a wild clamor for a...

    Re: This must be a joke

    Reminds me of the guy who listed Norman Blake's 12-fret D-28 for $3 million bucks (or whatever he wanted for it). It was outrageous, but it only takes one buyer to make a sale. (Not that he sold...

    Re: I fear

    Recognizing you have a problem is the first step. I remind you of the words of the social philosopher who taught us that: "A gentleman is someone who can play the banjo, but choses not to." Was it...

    Re: My Pava

    Congrats! I have a Pava A that I love. At one point in the past I owned an Ellis F5 deluxe, but that was just too much and too fancy for either my budget or ability. Every once in a while I think...

    Re: Free Waterloo Mandolin

    I would love to get my hands on one of those.

    I should add that Collings has a long history of generosity. Just one example I'm aware of is that they've donated a guitar to help fund...
  8. Re: Strung Together: Bluegrass and Old Time Music Jam Campout

    Oh man. Steve Roy is amazing. I'm envious of whoever makes it out there.
  9. Re: Brooks Cove Bash, Chandler NC (near Asheville) 8/10

    D'oh! You're correct. I'm not from the area, although I could see moving out that way some day if the stars align. Funny how the brain can add and subtract letters that way. I've had a note from...
  10. Brooks Cove Bash, Chandler NC (near Asheville) 8/10

    Probably a long-shot, but is anyone going to this little music/picking festival near Asheville NC this weekend? I will be out there with a guitar looking for folks to pick fiddle tunes with.

    Re: New Strap!

    I pulled out a bunch of paracord this morning to try this out. I've got an old Gibson A1 with a heel button that currently has an exceptionally ugly and uncomfortable strap on it.

    I've got a bunch of paracord that's been looking for a project. Definitely going to try this.
  13. Poll: Re: Poll for the Song a Week Social Group #503

    I long ago forgot that I was a member of this group. Beautiful waltz.

    Re: Kilin Reece and String Band Revival

    Thanks Scott. Great article. I wish they'd provided some links to some of the music discussed, and I'd have liked to hear more about the connection to commissioning the first Martin dreadnaught. I...
  15. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    Well, probably not about controversial issues like hedge fund weirdos in leather jackets threatening to let loose luthier litigation, and mass destruction of guitars so poorly built that Gibson can't...

    Re: Gibson destroys hundreds of Firebird X's

    That was part of my reaction as well. And I am a tree hugger.
  18. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    It would make a pretty good Martin ad too.

    Avuncular voice-over: "Gibson wants you to 'play authentic.'"

    Re: I canít play now

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery man. I'm glad you're mending. I've got a Yamaha SR 400 sitting in my garage that i bought last year that I never really took too. Fifty seems a little old to...

    Re: Waterloo Mandolin Released

    I very doubt that most high-volume production instrument of any age will match what's coming out of Collings. I guess they will earn their reputation or not when they hit the market, but I...

    Re: Old Ellis F5 vs New Ellis F5

    Me too. I doubt I'd spring for another F5, but an A5 or A4 would be really special to own.

    Re: Old Ellis F5 vs New Ellis F5

    Interesting to see this pop up. I was thinking about posting a thread comparing Pava to Ellis. I'm not sure if it's a fair comparison except that Tom himself says in his Fretboard Journal video...
  25. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    So, what I'm getting is they've realized they're in the middle of a PR nightmare, and they've got some vague sort-of plan for people to pay them money to get them out of it. Details to be ironed out...
