    Re: new: Northfield neck rest!!!

    Why do you want the body raised up at an angle? Wouldnt you want something soft under body a little too in order to make the entire length flat but still have the headstock off the table?

    Re: Which Budget Fingerstyle Guitar?

    I don't know whats wrong with these people. Of course you will need another guitar for finger style. Every style deserves a new instrument. Sometimes even just a new hair style deserves a new...

    Re: How did the "curl" on the mandolin body evolve?

    Some argue its a vestigial appendage left over from when mandolins lived in the sea. Possibly a flipper. From the Mandozoic Period.

    Re: All of My 2020 Festivals Have Been Cancelled

    Yep. Very sad. Our band has cancelled all gigs starting back with our favorite StPaddys day gig. Our last performance was the Friday night prior to St Paddys. I really don't see any gigging for the...

    Re: Ultra low action

    I like it really low. But it takes more effort tweaking to keep it there and I get lazy. Not as low as it used to be. Still my blue chip CT55 is a snug fit under strings at 12th fret.

    Re: Kimble or Duff F5?

    My band got coronaized so I'm just playing to myself solo and I like the 'woofy" for that. So Josh gives me the Duff and you the Kimble and then we're both happy. Problem solved!

    Practically speaking, I'd say if you are prone to loosing stuff, don't get one. If you can hold on to it then its really not much more expensive because it will outlast all the others. Divide the...

    Re: Eastman MD-315 vs Gibson Doyle Lawson

    Not that it matters much to us, but the other thing about the Gibson compared to some of the less expensive mandolins, is that I think it is going to sound and play great for a hundred years or more....

    Re: Changed back to nickel-silver frets

    A fret is just a nut up the neck, right? Well, except it has no groves. But I would think if you believe nut material could have an effect on tone, then a fret material could also seem to. I've often...
