    I just took a Blues Mandolin course from Steve James at 2019 Swannanoa, Mandolin and Banjo week. He was very good and a real encyclopedia of the early blues mandolin players. Another guy I can think...

    Re: Collings TKL USA Made Case

    Well, I just got an email from Collings on the same F style case. The customer service rep, Mark, tells me that Collings sells the same case for $300.00 plus shipping. Considerably less. He said he...
