    Re: Cortez Mandolin F-Style

    Looks like she has possibilities! These can be great mandolins if re-worked only if bought cheap enough, looks like some nice wood! I like that old school Gibson style double flowerpot:cool:

    Re: 1907 Torch & Wire with Virzi?

    I love Virzi's! I sure would like to play this old Torch! I'm not big into oval holes but the Virzi tends to tighten up the top on these/adds tone and gets rid of the usually tubby sound, I had a 24...
