    Thanks Jim! That's the kind of information I was hoping to find. It's cool to see that it exists on other instruments and also instruments coming from different factories. I think Mr. Spann's theory...

    Re: Modern Case for 1920's Gibson Model A

    I use TKL 8851 LTD for a 23 A and the fit is perfect. I wouldn't recommend TKL 7851 because the tuners end up a little too close to the neck rest.

  8. Re: Pingwell or Gotoh tuners? (Eastman 505 or 805)

    I used StewMac’s buttons for Waverly’s. Not a simple swap, but they’ve worked out so far. It took a bit of filing and sanding to make them fit on the Ping shafts. I knew the measurements weren’t the...

    Re: Eastman 404Bk Mandolin review

    Thanks, that worked.
    A nice review. It looks and sounds great. I look forward to seeing and hearing your A2 build.

    Are you going to scoop the extension over the 404’s sound hole?

    Re: Eastman 404Bk Mandolin review

    I’m interested in hearing this Nic, but I can’t get it to play. It might be a fault with me and my device, but I don’t usually have any problems playing sound clips or videos. I’ll keep trying.
