    Re: In search of a mandolin...

    CMchaney - I don't know if it will help but, seeing as how you are a violinist and may not have immediate access to a 13 inch scale mandolin, I have attached a picture of my hand on the neck of my 13...

    Re: In search of a mandolin...

    Just a quick note - the L&H at Gryphons has the longer scale. Quite neat that they have one!

    Re: Cases for Lyon & Healy model A

    The biggest difference on my Calton is caused by the neck angle. Thus the case depth is an inch or two deeper than a standard Calton. Because of this I assumed that most standard F cases would not...

    Re: Cases for Lyon & Healy model A

    I'm surprised because I thought the neck angle would be different than most F's? What area did not fit on your latest case? Asymmetrical models?

    Hi Bob - identical to mine. Perhaps they used your template when they made mine (although they did still ask for all measurements)!

    Re: $750 Collings mandolin case at elderlys

    This is well said. Part of the attractiveness of this case is what it tells you about an individual - what he can do when he really sets his mind to something. I'm sure this may sound like...

    Re: $750 Collings mandolin case at elderlys

    I do own a Calton case. A Calton is more protective if you plan on sitting on it or putting in a luggage compartment. This Collings case is the nicest case I have ever owned. It is extremely stout...

    Having recently acquired one of the vintage discontinued cases, I have to say it is a superb piece of work. I agree with everything Scott Tichenor has said about this case. Cases are kind of like...

    Re: Mazzaccara Classico A style mandolin

    Congratulations on a great mandolin. I did go to the Dogal R92b's and A Gali pick as well. It just demands a different pick than my arch backs!!

    Ahhhhh! That fits. Somewhere way back I had read she wanted to go to law school. What a multi-faceted young woman! I hope she will still play publicly and create videos. Thank you for the info Dean.
