    Wowzers!
    There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second. Logan Pearsall Smith, 1865 - 1946

    That is a Vega mandobass owned by a friend of mine associated with the Milwaukee Mandolin Orchestra.

    Playing without a strap is only for Italians (or inside dent people [that can rest the mandolin on an indenture in the body]). How does he do that? Anybody knows? Enlighten me!

    I was sold on Carlo Aonzo ever since his colaboration with Beppe Gambetta on Serenata (1997) and of course the must listen to Traversata (2001). What a great musician!

    Well, I am of Sicilian-American ancestry, and do not use straps on mandolins, even my bowlbacks...but you don't have to be Italian to learn to balance the instrument and still have full access to the fingerboard.

    I also sit when I can!
