    Default James on my J.Bovier

    Just added a nice James Tailpiece to my J.Bovier. I'm not sure it made a huge difference but it makes me happy. Not a bad little Mandolin, especially for the money. Much brighter than my Ellis and the neck is bigger too but still got her playing really good.

    Very nice! I sure also like my James!

    Did you have to re-drill?

    I did on the two upper holes. They were close but not lined up so...

    Looks nice with it on. Brighter you say? Hmm. That's what I've been trending towards in one band. Might have to check them out.

    I bet it makes string changing a whole lot easier.

    Interesting how much larger the F-holes on the Bovier are compared to the Ellis.
