    Re: beside the mandolin.

    Congratulations to Eli and to you, too, Steve. That is a brilliant sounding mandolin!

    Re: Mandolin "B" stock or seconds etc.

    I suspect that it will sound just like a non-second The Loar. I wish you luck but I don't think you'll need it. Unpack it, do the Rob Meldrum setup on it and you'll be liking it just...
