    Re: When You First . . .

    First was really the Dawg, but I played more like Levon. When I starting playing more seriously, It was Jethro's final sessions with Don Stiernberg playing rhythm guitar that really lit my bulb.

    Re: What is it? UK auction.

    The luthier for this instrument - a Florentine guitar (?) - [I]may [I] have salvaged a Gibson guitar neck and bridge for this creation... or just slapped a decal on the headstock.

    I like the black Wegen picks in general, because they have a darker tone than the white ones. :grin:

    Re: The Heiden F Artist in the classifieds

    Re: Blue Chips

    With flat top guitars or oval hole mandolins, I always seemed to keep a spare inside the body of the instrument!

    Re: Back to guitar after mandolin break

    Be careful: you might find yourself > 6 months since you picked up a guitar. If that is the case, your guitar chops will be a bit rusty (don't ask how I know).

    Re: Post A picture of your favorite "A" model

    My biggest raise came when my youngest graduated from college and the mortgage was paid off! I had permission from a mandolin facilitator... and sold a few instruments to make room for the Nugget.

    Re: Leather straps: flat or braided?

    Get a 2 pack of 48"leather shoelaces - can use a single cord as is, or can easily do a flat braid (or go online & learn a round braid). That's what I've used on most of my mandolins & works fine. ...
