    Re: Live From Home

    Very cool. I had never seen Simon playing guitar. He's not only better than me at mandolin, but also guitar. :cool:

    Re: Are People Buying Less Mandolins Now?

    Re: Eastman MD305 Tuners

    I agree with this and have seen the same issue with some guitar makers. In the minds of most, an instrument that will not hold tune is a bad instrument. I’d bet the average consumer (certainly...

    Re: RIP Kenny Rogers

    Back in 1998 or so I was driving down a desert highway somewhere in New Mexico. I got behind a nice RV with “The Gambler’s Roost” written on the back in a fancy custom paint job. When I passed it I...

    I enjoyed his talk. I wonder if the same standard applies to his China-made guitars?
