    Many thanks Rob, I received the e-book this morning. A quick glance through it suggests it will be very useful to me when the time comes, and my 2 intended builds are finished. Great source of info.

    Hi Robert, is it still possible to have your guide on the mandolin setup?

    Thanks a lot Rob, I received your fantastic guide and I can't wait to put your precious advice into practice. In my area it is difficult to find luthiers able to make the correct setup for mandolins. Now, thanks to you, I will be able to do it myself. Thanks again

    Just received Rob Meldrum's mandolin setup guide - very quickly after my request. Have not dived into it yet but wanted to give a big THANKS to Rob for putting it together and making it easily available, and at no cost. Big Thanks, Rob.

    I'm the latest recipient of Rob Meldrum's generosity & expertise. What an excellent setup tutorial he's written. I'm setting aside time for a careful reading.

    He also has two videos on YouTube showing the dramatic difference a good setup can make.









    I bought a used 'The Loar LM600-VS' on eBay. It was in fact a factory 2nd with a (repaired) crack in the right headstock volute. No warranty, case or setup.

    I wasn't aiming this high for a 2nd mandolin, but couldn't pass it up. Fortunate to have some experience & setup tools for working on guitars (& a feeler gauge Rob!).

    The nut might require a shim & filing a G string notch. The bridge is currently on the deck but seems to work, although stiffly as do the tuners. All seems fixable.

    Hopefully it can realize its full potential.

    Thanks Commodore,

    - Dan

    Thank you, Rob, for this E-book. It is very informative and as a newbie to mandolin building, it is already proving to be a very valuable resource to me!
    The descriptions and photographs are so easy to understand - even for someone as new to this as me!
    Rob was also very quick to reply to my request which is very much appreciated! Clearly we are in different time zones but I was very impressed that you were seemingly awake at 04:39am to reply to my request! Joking aside, this is an excellent resource and is very much appreciated. Thank you, Rob!

    Rob, I just wanted to thank you for the set-up book. I purchased a nice older Oregon Breedlove a few years ago but as a beginner, I played in first position exclusively. Now that Iíve advanced a bit, Iím playing up the fretboard and that made me aware that the intonation was off; as I moved up all the strings got very sharp. I remembered that I had downloaded your book, so I broke it out and voila! I now have a well intonated mandolin.Thanks again

    A big "Thank you" to Rob for this book! This is exactly what I was looking for now that I'm starting the process of setting up my first build. I was going to start asking questions about the correct procedure and then I found this post. Love the step-by-step instructions. Rob got back with me quickly after sending him a request. Be sure to get your hands on this if you're looking for a great resource on all things set-up related.
