    Well I should have provided full disclosure in that, at the time, I hadnt yet played an octave. So me saying it didnt do it for me really doesnt mean much. It could have been the size/scale length...

    Re: What does a mando set-up cost in your area?

  11. Re: Gibson Master Model vs. Ellis F5 with all of his highest opti

    Im playing a Snark FG. Actually these days its a PolytuneFG. But I sympathize. Even though my tuner lives on the headstock during a gig, I'm always trying to read the logo on others' when they play.
