    That Ellis 2 point oval checks all the boxes. Serious MAS for that one. Gorgeous in every way.

    They also make those clear plastic pickguards that cling to the wood for guitars--aren't glued on. You could cut one down to protect your pinky area although it might need to be bigger to stay put.

    I heard a bunch of plugged in mandolins at the Pagosa Folk & Bluegrass festival in June. To my ear, the best sounding mandolin was Isaac Eicher's Heiden that he was playing with Forrest O'Connor's...

    The First Ladies--what wonderful music. The history of bluegrass was shaped by men. The future belongs to the women. "Sisters are doing it for themselves." Yeah.
