    Meet ... the Perfect Mandolin Player.

    He's solid. He's smooth. His chops are impeccable. His tone is woody. He's in touch with his roots. There's no questioning his articulation. He may be a little stiff, but on the other hand he'll...
  4. Re: PayPal fraud in prograess (have you smelled this one before)?

    Yep! Gotta get some merchandise that won't attract criminals!

    My boss was trying to sell a DIY rug-hooking kit on Craigslist and somehow got the attention of a scammer ... they will seize upon...
  5. Re: (Godin A8) Making my mandolin look more ethnic

    Or give it a few cigarette burns and pour a frappe over it? Maybe laminate a very thin layer of olive wood over the top?
  6. Re: PayPal fraud in prograess (have you smelled this one before)?

    Quite so. This was a Reverb ad, and it was not an ad for either of the instruments I have listed on the Cafe at the moment. It certainly wasn't my intention to imply that the buyer contacted me...
  7. Re: What mandolin recordings are definitive to evolving its role?

    Indeed ... Celtic mandolin music before there were Celtic mandolins ... evidently one had to get one's instrument from Portugal or Greece at the time.
  8. Re: What mandolin recordings are definitive to evolving its role?

    The "classic quintet" postwar Blue Grass Boys recordings with Earl, Lester, Chubby and Cedric.
    Dave Apollon.
    Homer and Jethro.
    Howard Frye.

    Oh, I've gone back and forth with this individual already. He does not wish to lift a finger to ship these cases.

    And sure, I could lecture people on how to conduct their lives, but after I do,...

    Well, perhaps I shoulda said "shrunken solidbody electric guitar" to be more precise. But I only learned about the El Rey guitar in the process of writing my review. It's not as though someone took...

    The action is high, even though the bridge has been tipped over on its side (it looks as though someone might have done that deliberately in an attempt to lower the action). This means the neck is...

    Pretty sure it was standard 13.875" although I didn't have a tape measure handy. I submitted the review and will post a link when it's live.

    Well, I found a DPA for 1/2 price at Guitar Center, so I went ahead and bought it. It came with the guitar clip so I also picked up a fiddle clip on eBay. Rather than an "instrument-specific" mic, I...

    I had a chance to play one of these today at the Fretboard Journal HQ. I offered to write a review, so I'll have to be tight-lipped here until the review is posted.

    Re: Man I need a good tuner...

    I've started using Airyware on a smartphone.

    One thing about playing a Lyon & Healy Style A mandola is that there is absolutely no good place to put a clip-on tuner.

    Re: Interesting case

    I got an M&W double violin case for $20 at a local violin shop's garage sale. Not as nice as this. I had a luthier modify it a bit and now it holds my Lyon & Healy mandola.
