    Re: Thile using an SM57 mic

    I never really gave that much thought until just now. They sold those same Mics for years and I don't remember ever having one go bad. I'm sure they did just none that were in my control. They had...

    Re: H1 Mandola tailpiece

    If you'd like to keep the original you could remove the tailpiece base and use a jewelers saw to make two cuts farther down to create a new prong. They don't have to be the same lengths.

    Re: What's up with that truss rod?

    If in fact there is a way to adjust through the end pin hole it raises another question. Why is there a truss rod cover at all? I think what you're looking at is a manufacturing error.
