    Re: Nut Width for OM

    Correct. 20.6 inches is a short scale length for an OM and you will need quite a thick G string, and the G string will sound "thumpy" when fretted. I used a 34mm wide nut and 21 inch scale length...

    NMD - Northfield F5S

    Played one of these when I was in Austin and fell in love. Put it through the paces today at Taborgrass and at a Don Julin clinic at Artichoke Music here in PDX and I'm even deeper in love.

    Re: Armrests? magnets?

    You could do magnets.
    I attach a bracket to the mandolin side with screws normal ("perpendicular") to the surface of the sides. Then I use really tiny #2-56 screws to screw up through the bracket...

    Re: Pono MND-20 Tenor size Octave Mandolin!

    That is a beauty indeed. I'd like to see a side by side comparison of the different models. Is there a photo or video somewhere?
    Without that info, how about the nut width / string spacing on each?

    Re: 'Radius" Bridge

    I really appreciate the comments. I’ve learned a lot. The Apitius radius makes a lot of sense. And I own a Mowry OM with radiused fingerboard so I ran over to check the bridge—sure enough it too is...

    I've been offering radiused fretboards as standard for over 40 years and the vast majority of my customers much prefer them. Not everyone of course and for those I offer a flat board at no charge....

    Just an update. I installed the JJB PPS-220 into my Blueridge tenor and it sounds great.
