    Re: If you jam . . . .

    I'd say you're fine. Play on!

    In an old-time jam, I sort of don't like music stands. I disrupts spontaneity do some degree. I also like the setting of learning by ear. I have no say in the...

    Thanks for that reply! Saying, "No!" Hahahahhaaahhaaa! When the phone rings the answer is, "Yes." The mantra of a consultant, which I was for over 30 years. Now it's agency work. Another world...

    much more a melody instrument than guitar. I have learned about myself an ability to recall melodies. I have a simple vocabulary on mandolin. I just like to call up all the melodies in my head. ...

    Re: Amazon warehouse deals

    All the teens and twenties Gibson A-models (A5 notwithstanding) had the integrated fretboard. My A3 is over 100 years old. I am spoiled!

    Re: Gibson Mandolin Style A4

    hopefully it'll sell and the buyer will keep it intact. I just know the tuners are worth over $500 bucks alone, the case likely $200 bucks and the tailpiece another $200 bucks. That's $1,100 bucks...

    Re: Know You Rider

    who can tell me more about, "Wild geese in the west?" I think I got it!

    Great version of Rider. So dialed into the Seldom Scene from a very early age. Saw them a bunch of times in the '70s.

    Hey Spencer! That's so great!

    Re: Damaged teens Gibson A3

    the neck on my A3 was removed and straightened. I think it involved heat and steam? Wasn't there, but it was 35 years ago and it's still fine.

    Re: Old vs New Oval

    do you want an oval hole mandolin or do you want a mandolin with an oval hole? Gibson ovals are odd by today's hybrid standard. It's like the consumer has forgotten what the Gibson oval hole...

    Something to look forward to! A Yamaha mandolin photo!

    My FG-180 resides with our son in Brooklyn. I bought it with newspaper money in the early '70s.
