    Re: 1992 Nugget A Deluxe #155

    Just tried this mandolin yesterday since I was bopping around town. VERY good mandolin... whoever ends up getting it should be pretty happy with it!

    Re: No frills vs fancier mandolins

    I have played some pretty disappointing blinged out mandolins, and some great no frills mandolins. As for Collings, I think that they would beg to differ on spending more time voicing one model over...

    Re: Amazing Nugget F5 at Carter's!

    The best sounding Nugget I’ve ever heard or played resides in eastern Kansas and it IMO is one of the finest mandolins out there. I’ve heard it played on many, many occasions and funny thing is, I...

    Seems Carter's hasn't been doing as many video's during Covid so there's no Youtube's I'm aware of but my guess is they didn't come up with that number because it's pretty.

    Re: Amazing Nugget F5 at Carter's!

    After twenty-five years of buying and selling mandolins, I can say, unequivocally that every instrument has to be evaluated on its own merits. I am still kicking myself over Sanderson's A5 Jr a few...

    Re: Northfield Mandolins

    I don't know how much is actually "going on" in Michigan." They build their mandos in China (as lots of other makers do as well). I'd never buy anything made there if I could avoid it, but I'll give...

    Absolutely and always. I tip heavy. Sometimes, I feel like my luthier is not charging what he should be. I make up the difference.
