  1. Re: Where do the names F-style and A-style actually come from?

    I'm just saying, Mike, it's really anyone's game as to what those designations stand for. Although, look at the shapes. A style looks like a triangle, and an F looks a bit like an F style....just...

  3. Re: Northfield F5S consistency (or buying without checking)

    I've owned, and still own, quite a few Northfield mandolins. I would not hesitate, especially if you live somewhere where your choices are limited, to buy an F5S. Northfield has worked hard to...

    Re: Paypal

    Actually their system uses criteria to pinpoint taxpayer returns that may or may not be under-reporting. It looks for patterns.

    This reporting has been in effect several years. It’s not new for the 2021 tax year. I’ve had this conversation with people for several years now. And 1099 or not, tax on capital gains resulting...

    Re: Paypal

    PayPal is now issuing 1099's if your yearly sales are over $600. All the payment transfer services have been brought into compliance. In fact, I remember having this discussion for the last few...

    Re: Paypal

    The $600 is cumulative over a tax year. It is not item by item. They will report a consolidated statement of your sales. So, if you sell three items through Paypal at $500 each, you will get a...

    Payment processing companies are all being brought into compliance by the IRS in terms of reporting. This is about reporting; issuing 1099s for sales over the threshold. The tax laws regarding...

    I wasn't assuming that they were all selling through stores. But I was wondering why we have never seen at least a used one every so often from more of them. Or that someone would offer one in...

    Re: Crossrock Mandolin Cases

    Yes, but my one real dislike is it is much easier to knock over. It's fairly narrow, width wise. I put the Girouard in a Calton after knocking the Crossrock over a few times.

  19. Re: Looking for a Mandola and I need some advice.

    I've watched musicians tune with a tuning fork. I have to say, it's impressive (if they are good at it). It's a very nuanced process.

    Yes, Max had told me it would be about 3 years before he'd be making another one. The Kimble was nice, but I am not a flat fretboard person and I have a Campanella 2 pointer.
