    I should buy one of the shirts. I have a well loved 1930’s Strad-O-Lin.
    I started on the guitar my dad handed me in 1962, and have continued as a guitarist all my life. In 1982 my wifeís family passed down an old teens Gibson A4. It only took me 40 years to learn to play mandolin in 2013. Now I canít stop trying to get better. ó lflngpicker

    You should be all for it. Some of us don't have a Collings case to stand behind to distract people's attention!

    I don’t have the urge to buy one as I don’t have (and can’t ever remember seeing a real) Stradolin. I do, however, have a TAMCO teeshirt which I suspect could have become a collectors item!

    I have never owned a Strad-O-Lin but I like the look of that baseball tee.

    I played a resonator mandolin up at Jake's yesterday, and it was super fun. So loud and melodious

    I was thinking about that one, and told Jake about it. The one I played was a newer one, though, with a walnut body. He had one awaiting repair that looked like the bullet hole mando without the hole, though, and it had a welded tailpiece

    I love the design.

    It kind of reminds me of an old Schmergel Devastator t shirt I have but it's buried somewhere in my dresser and I can't find it.

    Yeah, wooden-bodied ones are much sweeter, and also kinder to the ears. Also, the bullet hole one needed a weld on the tailpiece.

    Went overboard and got a t-shirt, baseball jersey and sweatshirt. All high quality and great printing. Very satisfied.

    Thank you, Sue!

    I have to share any kudos with Avalanche Screen Printing in Hooksett, NH. They did a fantastic job with a somewhat tricky, mostly hand-drawn design. Print on demand can be pretty cool, but IMHO, hand-done silk screen, done well, rules.
