    Re: Luthier Websites - Browsing preferences?

    I'm a fan of Northfield's website. Very easy to navigate, and is as sleek as their instruments.

    Re: New Mando... Hamlett Two-Point

    I almost bought that one. There was something weird going on with the finish at the bridge that I couldn't stop looking at while playing it. It sounded superb, though.

    Re: New Mando on the way...

    Nice mandolin. It's something you'll just have to get use to. That headstock has a lot more weight to it, causing it to dip. You can keep it pretty stable with your right forearm.

    Re: New Mandolin Style

    Might want to shave the bridge top down so the strings aren't sitting so deep in the slots? You would typically want them sitting halfway into the top. Might be pinching them? Looks pretty cool!

    Re: Avoid marking the top of your mandolin

    Friction over time will wear through the finish. It may avoid nail damage, but you'd be surprised how fast anything continuously rubbing on a thin finish will wear right through it!

    That's pretty inexpensive for an F style. I would rather buy a used KM-1000 at that price point though.

    Put a pick between your pinky and ring finger,this will ensure your hand is in a "fist" position. Make sure the main part of the pick is inside the fist and not outside scratching on the instrument!
