    Hello Rob,

    Thanks for sending me your e-book on Mandolin Setup, and while your book is about the American style of mandolin with an adjustable bridge, nevertheless I am hopeful that the underlying principles in your text will assist me with the setting up of the bowlback mandolin which I have just made.
    Regards,
    Henry

    Rob,

    May thanks for sending this over, I'm confident that this will help me get the best out of my modest instrument. I'm especially interested by the nut set up section, which I'll be using to adjust my acoustic guitars too!

    I just received and read Mr. Meldrum's e-book on mandolin setup. Wow, what a wealth of great information! I checked a couple of my mandos that were supposedly professionally set-up and they don't even come close to the specs in his book. The action is far too high, the nuts are not properly filed and slotted, etc. I can't wait to set them up according to his specs and see how much difference there is.
    A big thanks to Rob for providing this great info for FREE!
    It ain't gotta be perfect, as long as it's perfect enough!

    I just received my second copy of Rob's ebook. After receiving the first copy I gathered and made the necessary tools per his instructions. From the looks of my mandolin tool box I seem to have developed Tool Acquisition Syndrome for my box overfloweth with neat little gadgets of questionable utility. Because I had unintentionally deleted his book I sent him a note and requested another copy. It now resides on every device that I own so that it doesn't disappear again. Rob's a great guy to offer the fruits of his labor to the mandolin community. Thanks, Rob, for a job well done.

    Thanks for the kudos and the thread bumps! I'm still getting about three requests a day for the ebook, and I've managed to keep the cost down - it's still free. So if anyone else has read this far, feel free to email me at rob.meldrum@gmail.com for your free copy. Please put "Mandolin Set Up" in the subject line.

    I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful holiday season. Go Seahwaks!

    I want to express my thanks to RM for writing the "Mandolin Set-up" e-book and sharing his knowledge. After reading through the entire e-book I learned so much about correctly setting up my mandolin. To my surprise I had initially set-up my mandolin *almost* (75%) perfectly with the exception of string height about the fretboard before receiving "Mandolin Set-up." There is so much conflicting information on the World Wide Web it was nice to read brief comparisons and his experiences which helped zero-in on the "truth." Thank you Rob.
