    Re: Trading

    Some years ago, I swapped a guitar for a mandolin, we both valued our respective instruments at (very) similar values, and we both paid for our own shipping to the trader. Worked out great!

    Re: Strap for A-style (that old chestnut)

    I do it the way 22_frets does, but I run mine just above the nut. I hate strap buttons on the heel too.

    Re: What's the real difference?

    I agree with pops1, although you also get ease of play/responsiveness as a side benefit. I started with a The Loar LM220, I thought it was great for the first few months I was playing (and it is not...

    This is an extremely wonderful tribute to his guitar (I just listened to it again.) I understand his feelings, although I cannot imagine playing a $50,000 guitar, when I played my favorite mandolins,...
  16. Re: When did you realize mandolin was your primary instrument?

    Mandolin is not my primary instrument, but it has displaced guitar. Piano is still primary, with mandolin and recorder (soprano and alto) secondary (portability is much better LOL!!) Guitar is third,...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Actually, I'm wondering what the reserve is, as the current bid is $100.00 and says "reserve not met." It may be less than $1500, so may be a bargain after all. It does look really clean.

    Re: Take Your Pick

    I got some Galli picks (NOS) on eBay a few years ago. I like them, but around the same time I also bought some Sekova picks (NOS) that I like much better on my bowlbacks.
