  1. Re: Somewhere between a ukulele and a mandolin...

    I've played one my daughter's cellos like that from time to time. The whole fretless thing is a challenge for me.
  2. Somewhere between a ukulele and a mandolin...

    If you cross a ukulele with a mandolin, you might end up with one of these. ;)

    Re: Ellis F5 Reserve in Classifieds

    I don't deserve it, but as soon as I cash in my Lotto ticket, I'm buying this Ellis and a new house with a wrap-around porch from where I can play it.

    I love the tortoise binding.

    I used to live just down the road from Blythewood. I'd do anything to get back there and plant my roots again.

    Re: What do ya'll call your mandos?

    I call my Ibanez Mandy Lynn, but hopefully soon I can call her "sold".

    My Morris is named Bonnie, short for Bonnie Blue.

    Re: Ibanez 510

    Kind of hard to go wrong for $99. and it beat knocking around your Silverangel or Morris. (I'm getting a Morris too and I plan to keep my Ibanez around just for that purpose.)

    I don't like the sound of tremolo either.

    I fit the bridge to my wife's 510 and changed the stock strings to Elixir Nanowebs (not sure of the exact gauge) and those two changes alone made a huge difference in the instrument's tone and...
