    Poll: Re: Do you use a Tone Gard?

    Absolutely. It’s a great playing accessory. Plus it reduces belly sweat by 25%. An armrest used with a Tone-Gard makes it even better. Both the back and the top are allowed to vibrate freely.

    Re: Adding a pickguard to an Eastman

    The process is pretty straightforward using the two pin method. Most of the Eastman’s I’ve seen and installed pg’s on had a cantilevered fingerboard. I’ve done it two ways. First using longer pins...

    Re: First pass at an armrest...

    Most cases require adjustments to the top screws. The hardware is seldom squared and sometimes the hole are not drilled to help. I adjust every set.

    Re: Mandolin pick guards

    What Peter says.

    I prefer an abbreviated style. Low mass and barely covers the F hole. I usually brush the finger rest as a reference. Although some like to make a statement with theirs.

    Re: Shoulder Replacement

    I’m going to PT. They’re saying 6 - 8 weeks of light duty. I’m almost 5 weeks post surgery and starting my 3rd week of PT. It’s taking so long, just getting impatient.

    Re: Cracked neck block

    Pretty much how I thought using counter sink screws and dowels. The neck would cover the holes. Tempted to remove the back. Maybe should it fail again.

    Ouch, the neck joint failed and the block is cracked. Any definitive way to correct this along with gluing. Also, hide glue, Titebond, or System Three epoxy? Thanks

  24. Re: Contemporary Christian Music with Mandolin Solo???

    King of My Heart has a Celtic feel to it. Great place for for an intro and solo for violin or mandolin. I usually kick it off and play along with the melody in the second verse.

    Re: Thoughts on abbreviated pickguards

    I liked the abbreviated style, 5 - 5 1/4” x 2”. A midsize is good to, 5 1/4” x 2 1/8” - 2 1/4”. Pins and or screws are sufficient alone, without a side bracket, to securely hold the pg in place
