    Re: A Great Gear Bag

    I had a leather bag that I used to own. Never really used it, but my daughter delighted in calling it my "murse." So I guess that the murse still lives.

    Re: Silverangel 100 year old red spruce

    I have always loved the look of the artwork you put on (all of?) your mandolins. Makes them different, in a good way. Never played one, but maybe someday.

  12. Re: Scrolls on Peghead now patented by Gibson?

    If I ever got around to building my own mandolin I think I would put a poison ivy inlay on it anyway, so fooey on Gibson for hogging all the great flora. :)

    As a collector of many things, I must say that I live by the credo that list price is for suckers. Anyway, the market is a product of pressures to sell high and buy low. Sounds to me like the...
