    Tom's a super-musical guy -- player of many instruments, fine singer, fine graphic artist, and a thoughtful person. I'm glad to see him get the well-deserved attention.

    Re: Clown Barf picks available

    On the contrary, around these parts there is no clown shortage. In fact I often feel as though I'm surrounded by nothing but clowns. I'll keep my eyes open for their valuable barf!

  8. Re: Your thoughts on Ellis A4s and other modern, upper tier ovals

    To my ears, pretty much all of the teens and twenties-built Gibson mandolins have intonation problems. None of them play in tune like a quality CNC-cut modern fingerboard mandolin can play in tune. ...

    You can always do what the late Danny Gatton did: use cubic zirconia as side dots. He let the facets stick up a bit -- so even a neon beer sign at 100 yards will make the side position markers...
