  8. Re: Solid body electric A styles - are these made anymore?

    I think Steve Ryder's Florentine 8-string would fit your needs. I own the 5-string, and he makes fine instruments with excellent pickups.

    Re: Warren Ellis Signature MandoTenor

    I'm not surprised production is limited to 36. What does surprise me is that they think they might sell that many.

    Re: All Blues on 10-string

    Thanks for listening, Rico. My son provided camera and was grumpy about having a mic in the visual frame, so the sound is not nearly close-enough miked and the room is very live, a bad combo. But the...
