    Well the MD 315 comes with a gig bag, and TMS upgrades everyone to a hard case, so they have a lot of them piling up.

    UPS rant

    I know, carriers are all the same, but I have a guitar that is going to take four days to finish the last 60 miles of it's journey. Why? Because they can according to their contract.

    Re: Ellis F5 vs. Gibson F5 vs. Collings MF5

    If an old friend speaks to me, it is generally because they have forgotten our last encounter.

    Re: Tuner machine advice

    I think we need to separate the issue. Mandolins fluctuate more than any other instrument I've played. It is the nature of the beast for all but possibly carbon fiber mandolins. Then there are the...

    Re: F-4 owned by Norman Blake

    You know, when I read about an instrument once owned by someone, all I can think is here is an instrument a discerning musician rejected as a keeper.

    Re: Tuner machine advice

    Tuneing issues are very rarely caused by tuners. More common are strings not installed correctly and nut slot issues. The main difference between cheap tuners and Waverlys is smoothness of operation.

    Re: Micing mandolins for recording purposes...

    Live I use an SM 57 because itís good enough. In my studio I have a pair of Sure SM 81s and a Rode NT2 further out if I want more room sound.

    Re: James Mandolin Tailpiece

    If you must have polished, sell your James and buy an Allen. You give up ease of use for looks.

    Re: Picked up a fiddle recently..

    I picked up a fiddle too. A $20,000 fiddle. Took it out of its case, admired it, then gave it back to my daughter who plays it professionally.

    Not enough life left to start that journey, and lest...
  12. Re: A newbie player looking for an affordable entry level mandoli

    I agree with finding a $150 used KM150. It will never be worth less than $150, and a worthy keeper when you upgrade. But you can make anything play ok with enough effort or money for a setup, but I...

    Dead strings can cause all sorts of issues with intonation. Really you need to position your bridge using a tuner. You can download a Peterson into a smart phone. As long as you are going to go hog...

    Re: Satin finished mandolins?

    How far back are you going for sub $3000 F 9s? Probably back as far as when you could get a nice Collings guitar for under $3000. But I agree with you that an F 9 is a nice aesthetic. Weber Galatins...

    There are gems out there in the $1200 used market. I think I paid $1400 for my Silverangel A style, but it was fully bound. An Econo would easily be had within your budget. A Kentucky master would be...

    Re: A model: Adding a strap button to the heel.

    I had Gryphon put a wood strap button on my Silverangel and they had to shorten the screw because it hit the truss rod, so beware of that possibility. But the result is great.

    Re: Thor's Hammer, many thanks

    Sometimes we who are fortunate to own many fine instruments find ourselves ignoring them. Last week I broke a string on my 1970 Guild D 35 guitar, so had to put new strings on it. I’ve neglected my...

    Re: Classifieds

    You need to cruise the classifieds as entertainment.

    I too disregard any add without a price and any add without a picture.

    And any guitar add in the mandolin section.
