    Re: Stolen Mandolin

    I once had a guitar stolen from my car trunk when I was unloading equipment for a gig at a bar. It's a shame how many people of low degree are lurking and ready to steal with no conscience. The...

    Such a different kind of performance when there's no audience and no applause, it has a studio recording quality about it. Great to watch such professionals do their magic. Sound levels could have...

    Re: Thinking of buying a second mandolin

    A mandolin with a scroll on it, that's what I'm talking about. If you want one with a scroll, and points too, go for it. I've got one with a scroll, all the bluegrass players I see one YouTube have...

    Re: Why do people only sell the great ones?

    Certainly you have no idea what would be the best mandolin the seller has ever played. A flawed premise. But yes there are some wonderful instruments for sale in the classified.

    Re: Point protectors
