  2. Re: To the multi instrumentalists: which instrument is your no. 1

    Early violin lessons until I sprained a wrist playing football in 9th grade. I'd already picked up guitar at that time with the idea of "attracting chicks (in 1966 vocabulary). Through high school...

    Re: Mandolin Considerations -- Add to my List

    With your budget, the world is your oyster. It would be worth using a bit of your budget to travel to someplace where you can try a variety of different mandolins. The right one will find you.

    Location, location: it's been so sunny and dry in NC this past month, I was going to suggest leaving it out in the fresh air in a sun-exposed area... the ozone treatment will surely work. I'd check...
