    Re: Live from Here is no more

    That is a total downer. The show was exceptional and I loved the fact that a show like that existed in our current culture. I thought Thile was always captivating and the content wonderful.

    Re: Stanley V5 Mandolin

    Not an owner but my picking buddy had one years ago from I believe 1995 before he bought a Master Model. I really liked that mandolin. Very good traditional tone is my memory of that mandolin.
