    I am ridiculously excited to have Kelsi Harrigill picking her VX with Flatt Lonesome on this season of Bluegrass Underground --



    Also noticed Nathan Livers with Michael Cleaveland's Flamekeepers picking his Gary Vessel F5 too! That's some fine California mando-builders representation! ! !

    Sometimes it is better to make sure the "test" version just a learning experience that leads to a better next build. Can you imagine how awful it would be if bands made us listen to the recordings of all their early rehearsals?

    Here's a quick Facebook video from Darren Nicholson talking about the custom GHS string set he uses on this Sorensen VX, some background on his cool custom strap, and a bit of Graveyard Blues from the new Balsam Range album, Aeonic.

    I do believe if I was to get a "Newish" mandolin it would have to be one of these Steve! A Vessel, Duff, and a Monte GA also is up there for newer mandolins. I'm a vintage Gibson nut but these VX's and such, YEAH man, almost too sweet! See mandolin obsession is and can be a serious dangerous thing! They're just is way too many lookers that sound the part as well!

    I've got to admit, seeing one of the very first pictures that I took of Danny Roberts' VX on this month's cover of the BLUEGRASS UNLIMITED Instruments Issue was a "Peak cool" experience!
