  4. Re: We have a 3-way race: Collings vs Pava vs Gilchrist

    May you put some honest Fert wear on that one. It looked great and I'm sure will hold off MAS in the tone department (at least for a while).

    Mike:

    Re: Mandolin as carry on?

    I've bungee corded a guitar and a mandolin together as a single carry-on to go in the overhead with no problem, flying in anything but a puddle-jumper.

    Re: Mandolin as carry on?

    I always use a hard case and put it in the overhead. My other carry-on fits under the seat. Sign in on-line early. Never had a problem.

    Re: Flying with a mando

  18. Re: My only Mandolin's nut got damaged, what is my best option?

    I was going to make the same argument for preventative measures in the future - a new nut is nothing compared to repairing the top or repairing a broken neck!

    Re: Back to guitar after mandolin break

    Be careful: you might find yourself > 6 months since you picked up a guitar. If that is the case, your guitar chops will be a bit rusty (don't ask how I know).
