    Re: What's the real difference?

    I agree with pops1, although you also get ease of play/responsiveness as a side benefit. I started with a The Loar LM220, I thought it was great for the first few months I was playing (and it is not...

    Re: George Gruhn with his favorite guitar

    This is an extremely wonderful tribute to his guitar (I just listened to it again.) I understand his feelings, although I cannot imagine playing a $50,000 guitar, when I played my favorite mandolins,...
  6. Re: When did you realize mandolin was your primary instrument?

    Mandolin is not my primary instrument, but it has displaced guitar. Piano is still primary, with mandolin and recorder (soprano and alto) secondary (portability is much better LOL!!) Guitar is third,...

    Re: Need mandolin recommendations a-style

    I am very happy with my A-style Pava player, my Collings MT (I listened to an MT-2, and I liked the MT better YMMV,) and my Weber Bitterroot oval hole (the Pava and Collings are f-hole.) I think you...

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    Actually, I'm wondering what the reserve is, as the current bid is $100.00 and says "reserve not met." It may be less than $1500, so may be a bargain after all. It does look really clean.

    Re: Take Your Pick

    I got some Galli picks (NOS) on eBay a few years ago. I like them, but around the same time I also bought some Sekova picks (NOS) that I like much better on my bowlbacks.

  12. Re: Playing a collings - what would an "upgrade" really get me?

    I have a Collings MT (I liked it better than the MT2 which is supposed to be better,) it is nicely complemented by my Weber Bitterroot oval, and my Pava Player. These are all basically at the same...

    Re: Made by Giovanni Marino de Tulio 1896

    I have 4 American-made bowlbacks, all playable (although not as fancy a headstock as yours,) all were in the $200 price range. Much depends on playability and if any neck repairs are required, as...

    Try pawn shops in your area - usually the people that steal try to convert the items into cash quickly (your county and nearby counties.)

    Re: Arm rest. Y or N?

    I love them. Never had one till I bought the Collings MT that came with one, now I have one on all of my mandolins. Keeps the edge of the mandolin from cutting into my arm, so it's a comfort thing,...

  25. Re: How important is having the original hardshell case?

    I like to have it (one of my bowlbacks came in an original case,) but it lives in a gig bag, and I have a hard case if I take it out. Not sure why I like to have it, I just do. I guess because it...
