    Re: Advice On Finding A Jazz Mandolin

    I did find a Gibson 1929 AO at music 6000 in Olympia today and was not impressed for the $1600 price tag. It could have used a bridge fitting and a higher action though as it fretted out past the 5th...

    Re: Advice On Finding A Jazz Mandolin

    P.J - I've been toying with the idea of going electric. I tried once before and did not care for mandolin with single course. That said I could get started on a low budget, but I know how I am. I'll...
