    Re: Eastman md 504 or Eastman km 272

    You're buying it based on looks so get the one that looks better to you if price is not an issue. Any appreciable difference in sound will be due to the natural variability between instruments, not...

    Re: What is that little instrument?

    I went through airport security in Austin after SXSW years ago behind David Byrne, who, when the agent asked me what was in the case, opined that it's always the mandolin players who cause trouble.

    Re: Modern Oval Holes

    Looks pretty, Charles, that's for sure. I own a Fern oval that haunted my dreams after I played it in the store, and I've liked every Weber oval I've played. I owned a Pomeroy many years ago and it...

    I can't speak for the current iteration, but Weber made some fantastic ovals.

    Re: Guitarist looking for a Weber

    David, we call that "nasty little itch" mandolin acquisition syndrome. Be sure to let us know what you get and how it's going. Curious minds want to know.

    Re: Ready to upgrade mandolin - need advice!

    You're right about YouTube. My 14-year-old won't even watch a movie. (OTOH, she's read 40 books in the past six months.) Anyway, I'll take just any excuse to slip in a reference to The Princess Bride.

    Re: Yet another first (budget) mandolin question

    In this price range, I wouldn't fret over whether the back is solid or laminated. It's not going to be hand carved, it's going to be pressed. There may be no appreciable difference in sound quality...

    Re: Ready to upgrade mandolin - need advice!

    Silverangel in the classifieds for $1600; you said you could stretch the budget. That +/- $1,500 range is a sweet spot for a good used A.

    Ah man, this is sad news. I saw Bill perform many times. He had such a gentle spirit. I think many of his songs stand with the best of the American folk tradition.

    There was no system. I think they used to just write whatever number they felt like on the label. Seriously, it's impossible for anyone not at Saga to tell the year from the serial number and I'm not...
