    Re: Mike Marshall's Loar?

    I’ve been in Mike’s Artist Works class for around 4 years. He switches around his Mando here and there but most often plays the Northfield 4th gen. He has had at least 2 different 4th gens in that...

    Re: Sierra Hull on Steven Colbert

    I liked it. Always amazed by the guys that go out of their way to tell everybody how much they don't like something on here.

    If nothing else you should be able to appreciate the fact that a whole...

    Awesome! Glad that helped. My #54 sounds way better now in my opinion that in did when I got it. May be my playing or 'opening up' or whatever (see countless discussions elsewhere on the forum about...
