    Re: My mysterious JBovier Knock-off

    There is a Texas based seller that has been active under two or three names for years that buys factory left overs from a family member in Korea. He's not in Dallas. A few of us purchased really nice...

    Re: Kelley A-V-5 advice needed

    If you have a question for the builder regarding the warranty then perhaps it might be best to take that up with him or perhaps the person you bought it from. There's no reason for this to continue...

  6. Re: Do great looking mandolins have to sound better?

    Bill Monroe's mandolin didn't look all that great. The back was a little mismatched and as the years went by it didn't get any newer. If you pay a bunch for a mandolin I'm of the opinion that it...

    It's simply a nod to tradition, nothing more nothing less.

    Re: Martin Mandolin Identity

    Great job on building the case Steve. I've always wondered why there wasn't more of build your own case movement. Some people build some heavy boxes. I'm not talking about that, I'm talking about...

    Yes, it did the trick but I can't seem to get to it anymore because there are too many cases stacked in front of it. Yes, I am a sick man.
