    Re: Storage: Case vs Hanging on the Wall

    I have had my mandolins on wall hangers for years. Never had one fall. The only thing they get is dusty sometimes. I cover the peg head/tuners with a hat. I play them less when stored in cases.

    Re: Are Eastmans a keeper?

    What makes a keeper is owner dependent. If you enjoy it and get satisfaction from how it and you perform together, then it's a keeper.

    Re: Good news, bad news.

    I'm pretty much done for buying mandolins. I have two that hit all my needs and are better than my abilities (and willingness to practice). I used to hunt around (see my blog posts) but, that's not...

    I always enjoy your NAMM posts and the fresh pulse of the mandolin world (at least at the big trade show). Was the punk woman with the awesome hair there again? She was my favorite NAMM sight.

    I can't answer your question but, if you want a new build with Bruce Weber attention and service, you should buy a new one from his new venture Montana Lutherie.

    Re: Steve Martin Signed mandolin on Ebay

    There's only one Mandolin Steve Martin has ever had his hands on that I'm interested in but, it's on long term loan... I got to play on it once, too. I still sounded like me.
