    Re: Nasty string buzz on Fender Tele

    Yes, they come set up with the proper string gauges for Chicago tuning. Sounds like the nut slots need attention unless the distributor for some odd reason changed the original strings. Take it to a...

    There is a recent classified with OHSC Martin A Koa. The case is probably worth a couple of hundred. Someone should grab it’s it appears to be a decent deal.

    Re: HSC for Martin A style mandolin (update)

    I was in a similar situation. A local music store had a case with a bit of extra length in the headstock area. Great padding and a very protective fit. They thought it was unsold Mid Mo stock. Later...

    Re: My Tone Gard review. Get one for your mandolin

    I’d be cautious with a new mandolin whose finish is still curing. I once used an arm rest that left an impression in the finish.

    Grommets for 1922 Martin A

    I recently had a Martin A 1922 brought back to life. It is missing the tuner grommets. It seems to be a common issue. Should I attempt to find replica replacements or not worry about it?

    Re: Going all acoustic

    I’d just like to add that having owned several quality acoustic and electric instruments and amps over the years, I find the quality found in under $1000 to be excellent value.

    Willie P. Bennent

    Several years back I was fortunate to see Willie P. Bennent with Fred Eaglesmith. I was wondering if any cafe members know what mandolins he played and what effects he used when he plugged in.

    Re: Hard case for Martin A

    Thanks for the reply Mike. You've confirmed what I thought. Probably my best option is a decent quality gig bag short of a custom case.
