    Re: Feeling guitar bodied Mandocello

    That is NOT what the page says - it says "solid spruce top". That does not imply carved, and I've run into instruments before with the same words - and it meant laminate.

    Re: Mando Uke conversion

    Sorry I haven't been back, guys - computer ate the mother board.

    I neglected to mention it was tuned A, E, B, F# from low to high... So, not a mandolin or mandola.... But so far no one can tell...
  14. Re: Fretting intonation issues with Trinity College OM

    A light touch is what you need to apply.... Just enough to fret the string. Of course, too much pressure will sharpen the string. This is no mystery. Technique is your problem.
