    Re: Red spruce versus Engleman (MT/MT2)

    My best friend ever was around for 16 years also, a husky mix. She was the smartest, kindest, most loyal thing I could ever imagine. But that first year was a rough one. It wasn’t the training part...

    Re: Red spruce versus Engleman (MT/MT2)

    I’ve owned a few MT-O’s, an MT2-O and an MF-O. When I finally realized that I kept coming back to them because I liked the sound I custom ordered an MT2-O with an Engelmann top and Birdseye back and...

    Re: Thank You, Collings

    Try an MT-O. Bass and ‘airness’ out the wazoo.

    Re: Unusual Suspects

    Now this thread makes me smile. I will preach the versatility of the Collings oval holes all day long. I'm an oval hole guy and don't really play much bluegrass, but I have heard both my main players...

    Re: A-String Buzz

    Picture 2 of 3, that 2 point on the left — I’ll have that one.
  13. Re: Mandolin Considerations -- Add to my List

    Hamlett (Sunburst on this site). I’m an oval guy but Johns f-holer will never leave my side. The build quality is above Collings (MT2-O owner also) and the sound and versatility are astounding. He...
