    Re: Ď87 Flatiron Artist F5

    Thanks Mike,
    I’m sure embedding is what I meant! Still can’t figure out how though.

    Thanks, Jim. I changed the saddle on the EM as the originals are stainless steel, sound really harsh and cannot be modified. I have brass saddles made that look identical, but sound much sweeter. I...

    Over the years Iíve found that the only way I can get the volume and sustain needed for slide (without feedback) is to use a solid body mandolin. Single strings sound like a high-strung guitar, so...
