    Re: Thao Nguyen

    Here is a picture of one of Doug Unger's pocket mandos. I use a very solid PVC fishing rod case to carry the instrument. It plays (and looks) great. Commuted on Southwest Airlines three...
  5. Re: Anyone who doesn't believe that instruments open up from play

    One hundred and forty posts based on "I think my mandolin sounded a lot better after some other guy played it for a while."

    Well I'm just now opening up.

    For the most part, this whole thread sounds like geezers really in a regular rut. "GRRR". LOL.;)
