    Re: Cream-colored Golden Gate

    I just received two of the Gilchrist picks from Carter's. Great people to deal with. I like the pick a lot. It fits tone wise right between a Blue Chip 55 and a Primetone. The Blue Chip is a bit...

    Re: Post MAS syndrome

    I was over MAS until I was reading a thread about mando shops in Denver that said there was a nice Weber Bighorn in one. Well, it's no longer in Colorado.

    Re: If you keep going back, it's BOUND to happen!

    Re: Looking to upgrade...

    I used to own this model Loar.

    It would be a no brainer, for your budget and needs.

    Re: Removing a "perfect binding" from a music book

    You can go to almost any office supply store, UPS store, etc., and they will grind off the backbone and comb bind it for you. Only costs a few dollars.

    New Mandolin Day

    I really can't say enough about this mandolin. I found a used 2016 Mandolin Store Custom F5 and pulled the trigger. It's a step above an F5 and a step below The Fern in the Gibson pecking order.
