    I could be wrong, but I believe Chad Manning picks a Giacomel when he's not fiddling. Maybe it was a twofer deal.

    Probably repeating something already mentioned, but DG does promote Giacomel on his Acoustic Disc site.

As for performance ability if I could play half as good as either Sam or Dave slow, that would be something.
    Ohhhhh, was this a private online tasting or is it public like on Youtube or something? Would LOVE to see that!

    is in the Mandolin Cafe News section, he did charge admission, did not play a lot other than demonstrating various mandos, but talked in detail and depth about who made them, how he acquired them, what recordings he used them on and which were his favorites. On the whole it was a very cool.

    Got no compassion, thinks its a sin
    All he does is sit around an play the Mandolin"
