    Re: Instrument swap?

    Great points JL. I didn't say my idea was a good idea:)

    Re: Instrument swap?

    I want to clarify, I don't mean trades, just a temporary trial of another top tier instrument, with expectations of full return in exact same condition. Not a transaction, just a visitation.

    Re: Who has thin bluechips?

    I just ordered the tad 40, I'll report my experience soon. I was going to get thinner, but they won't accept returns on custom, and everything under 40 is custom.

    Re: Weber, the best years.

    My understanding of the stash was that it was more in the 50 year old department...? We can ask Bruce, he might be reading this, or Mary might. My "old wood" custom has 1950's cedar and 1970's...

    Re: Mandolin sound changing over time
