    Re: Apollo Picks !

    The only thing I wish is that the picks would have some sort of logo on them identifying them as "Apollo" picks. Nik is a one man operation so perhaps that would just add to the cost of production.

    Re: Apollo Picks !

    I just received my Apollo "PEEK" pick today, style F 1.25 mm (although it actually comes in at 1.2). Over all I am quite impressed. The finish is very nice and the tone is click free. It sounds a lot...

  9. Re: Mandolins with violin-style construction are nothing new...

    I wonder if that is a repurposed viola neck attached to the body? That might explain the ebony "button graft".

    It would also help with the discrepancy I see with the skill of the scroll carving...

    It is cool funk none the less.
  12. Re: Mandolins with violin-style construction are nothing new...

    Re: Bridge upgrade on new Eastman mando?

    Zach, I did all the work myself, so not a whole lot into it. I also sold off an Eastman 314 that I tweaked a bit at the same time, they were good mandolins but the Girouard was calling my name. It's...

    Zach, yes I did! A barley played Girouard F-5 came up at a great price so I sold off a few mandolins to make the purchase. The guy who bought the 315 was thrilled to get the upgrades at no additional...
