  3. If you could have any mandolin in the world….

    If you could have any mandolin in the world which one would it be?

    Re: Mandolin Banjo Set Up

    Yeah you guys are right. This definitely does not look like the original bridge. And even though those "Henning bridges" looks nice, I'd rather try to make the one already one it work. ( Eager to...
