    Re: Tonegard alternatives

    This might be better than the tonegard solution, though I would suspect a violin shoulder rest approach might be more practical than a chin rest one, since it isn't clear from such a narrow piece of...

    Re: Tonegard alternatives

    This picture might help understand what I mean by apple shape, as opposed to the regular pear shape (anyway, that's what the luthier calls the shape of brazilian mandolins):

    Re: A question about floating pickguards

    I think this is better than what I am looking for, since it is not permanent, I wonder if there is one for mandolin, maybe it can just be cut to size:

    Re: A question about floating pickguards

  17. Re: How to adjust the bridge on a fanned fret 10 string mandolin?

    Since I don't know if he tried only one or several, I cannot be sure, but if only one, I am pretty sure it was this one by Brazilian luthier Regis Bonilha (screen capture of video sent to me in...
  18. Re: How to adjust the bridge on a fanned fret 10 string mandolin?

    Looks really nice, but the fan frets looks rather scary, I wonder if there is a video or recording of it.
