    Re: vintage gibson mandolin tuners question

    The tuners worked fine on the 1929 A mando. The back plate holes lined up perfectly, though i had to use the

  7. Re: Comparing Phoenix Mandolins - Bluegrass vs. Standard/Deluxe

    I think most builders are set up to do what they basically do - with small variations of course. It's a lot of effort to shift gears. So, here is what I did. Made a quick trip to Mandolin Brothers,...

  9. Comparing Phoenix Mandolins - Bluegrass vs. Standard/Deluxe

    Hey - Has anyone played both of these mandos and could share an opinion about how they compare to each other? I'm asking because I might want a mando with more chop and a more blue-grassy sound. I...
