    Re: Where did the tab edit files on Mandozine go?

    The Mandozine website was asking for donations recently to cover their overdue web server bills, so it's possible that they ran out of the funds necessary to keep it going, and closed the site -- or...

    Re: Bridge upgrade on new Eastman mando?

    NDO. I bought an Eastman 305 from TMS a little over a year ago. I found the setup to be very good. I did do a very minor re-fitting of the bridge as there was a tiny sliver of light visible under...

    Re: Which Budget Fingerstyle Guitar?

    I agree with the "get all the new guitars" you can sentiment. Acoustic guitars are plentiful in the new and used marketplace, there is wide variation in them, and today's cheap guitars aren't bad....

    It plays well? You win. Leave well enough alone. If there’s a problem you can fix it if it becomess apparent. But it won’t. Enjoy. Stop worrying. Play.

    Re: Favorite Doc Watson albums

    I really like Doc Watson - On Stage. Learned a bunch from that one.

    And I think that The Watson Family is pretty essential listening, too.
