    Re: New mandolin and selfmade accessories

    I'm diggin' the action guage too! …. Just an observation here, but I noticed you stated your pick is made of a 'flexible' material. I have a 'The Loar' 600 (which I like), but seems barely audible...

    Re: Intonation Question

    So, after a week or so of some fairly hard playing:
