    Re: Bowlback make/model?

    I upload images using the the tree picture icon in the toolbar. If you click on it you can choose to upload images from your computer(IPhone) I’m not real tech savvy, but it works for me.

    Re: Which Budget Fingerstyle Guitar?

    My honest opinion is your going in the wrong direction. A D-28 is a great guitar for any style. I think Elizabeth Cotton used a D-28 on some of her recordings and sheís a great finger picker. I think...

    Re: Steve Earl and his Gibson mandolins

    ďSome bad stuff happenĒ relates to his son Justin Townes Earle passing away. A very cool video considering the situation. My heart goes out to the Earle family. J.T.E. R.I.P.

    Re: Never seen one of these before.

    According to the description the middle neck is a ďshort slide guitarĒ, exactly what everyone needs sandwiched between their double neck mandolin/mandola! Brilliant! :confused:

    Re: Some questions/concerns about bar frets

    So the advantage to leaving bar frets is the ability to help adjust the action when there’s no truss rod adjustment available? Makes sense. T frets always need to be flush with the fretboard. I...

  11. Re: NMD 1935 Martin A-Style (and a 'lighbulb moment'!)

    Congrats! I think you made a great choice and thereís no need to start shopping around. I enjoyed reading about your lightbulb moment and although I donít have a 1919, I absolutely agree with AllenH.

    Re: Martin Style 15 repair

    Well, I would consider myself a bottom dweller when it comes to mandolins. For the most part I’m looking at and buying instruments in the $500-1000 range. I don’t mind spending the money on Gaboon...

    Thanks for the information. I was looking at Gaboon and wasn’t sure if that would work. Fortunately I have access to a planer, band saw, and a lot of other good tools so I don’t need to find...
