  2. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

    My imagination must have been working overtime - I envisioned the poor, suffering commas and periods staging their own independent revolt by distancing themselves from the hideous bolding.

  3. Re: Gibson threatening the mandolin and guitar luthier community

  9. Re: Lengthy article on bluegrass in the Guardian (UK)

    To some degree, I think that's just the angle the author took (a good article usually starts with a good "hook"), and to be fair, on the surface it's not a bad angle from which to explore a music...
  10. Lengthy article on bluegrass in the Guardian (UK)

    Re: Gibson Teens Serial Numbers

    It's never safe to assume anything when it comes to Gibson, so we need to keep in mind the actual evidence. We have serial numbers, we have the dated Loar labels, we have FONS and we have the actual...
