    Re: Where to donate a couple old mandos?

    Thanks for all the responses. Yes, I'm in NM. Where are you, Explorer? Louise, do you know if those schools could do some minor repairs? Thanks for the CBA info. The instruments need a little work,...

    Re: Girouard "Griffith" tribute mandolin.

    Curious why more builders don't make Griffith inspired A5s. It's a design that produces superior tone, but hardly anyone makes them. Strange.

    Chris Stanley A5s used many Griffith characteristics....

    Re: New John Reischman Interview

    Thanks, Dave. Great interview and I found out in the interview John will be playing in NM so I will finally get to see him again. The Jaybirds have the perfect total band sound--just love to listen...
  12. Re: Treating Trigger Finger - My First Cortisone Injection

    That shot was excruciatingly painful for me and it took a few days before my left ring finger settled down. It helped for a few months and then the triggering came back. I went on a turmeric regimen...

    Re: block inlay patterns

    Now that's classy, Billydog!

    Just curious, is there any concern about wear on block inlays or is it as hard or harder than ebony?

    Re: NMD - Brentrup Model 23

    My 2002 has the same profile as yours, pops. Easy player. I was a little nervous about the neck profile when I was deciding to buy it, but it works like a charm.

    We heard some great stories from Mark at Monroe Camp last year about his travels with Bill. The book should be great.

  20. Re: 6 Vintage Gibsons on the cover of Norman & Nancy album

    It is wonderful. It was released on CD as "Natasha's Waltz." Norman was a guest at Monroe Camp in 2021 and said the album was their response to the first Dawg Quintet album.

    Re: Rick Turner has passed into Eternity

    Before the Planet Bluegrass Academy moved to RockyGrass, it was held at Telluride. The one year I went to Telluride (maybe 1996 or 1997?), Rick was there with Michael Hornick helping students build...

    Re: In Praise of Hans Brentrup

    Thanks for all the comments. I'm really enjoying this fine mandolin. This is my first mandolin with an Italian spruce top. I'd say Hans carved it right.

    Thanks for the link to the Brentrup...
