    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    These Ibanez's are absolutely the real deal. I have owned a couple and loved them. (I get what you mean about the archtop and its similarities to acoustic guitars, and yet their ability to go...

    Re: My mandolin got eaten by a Stratocaster.

    Looper pedals are an absolute blast! Perfect for practicing lead breaks and really nice for playing out. Get one with a separate “off” button. It will save you some embarrassment when you are...

    Re: Thumb wear on the neck

    Don't be embarrassed -- it also depends on the finish. I know for sure the nitro finish on my F-9 neck was pretty thin and soft and it only took 3 or 4 years of serious playing to go through it. ...

    Re: stand or sit?

    Now that's it...it's that sitting natural unamplified sweet tone...it's the natural tone of the instrument in a peaceful setting or should I say sitting.

  15. Re: How has the mandolin changed your guitar playing?

    I get you on this post, Caleb. Like so many, I played guitar my whole life, starting at 7 years old and continuing at 65. But the mandolin truly gets a hold of one. I find that I get into it at...
