  3. Re: What if I removed the nitro finish from the sides of my mando

    It doesn't really bother me. It just looks like an old, worn mandolin. Hard to say if removing the flaking would look better or not. Short of a complete refinish, I'd probably just leave it alone.

    Re: fretboard support opinion?

    It looks like you are on the right track. If you don't like the way it looks, just tint it darker to be less obvious. I don't think most of us go looking there normally. Maybe builders do...

  10. Re: For members that make a living in the music business

    Before the world was in "crisis mode" I managed to barely eke out a living from gigs, repair work, and eBay sales. So, if you can't hire a band, support your local repairman and/or buy something...
